Weekend Plans

What a great weekend!  Not that it was anything super exciting, but it was great nonetheless.  Saturday morning we got up and ran some errands, came home, and Peyton went down for her afternoon nap.  We had plans to go to Greenville for a friends baby shower/ housewarming party that afternoon, and the shower started at 3pm.  Well Miss Peyton was doing some hardcore napping, and I wasn't about to wake her up.  Sleepy head finally woke up around 3:10pm, so we changed her and hit the road.  We missed the baby shower, but we made it there for the cook out and housewarming part.  Peyton was her usual charming self, laughing and babbling at everyone and everything.  There were lots of older kids there, and of course she was intrigued by them the entire time.  It was great to see our friends, it had been years!  I'm always so excited when I have friends that are expecting their 1st baby.  Now that I know exactly what they're feeling and thinking, it makes everything so much more fun.  Peyton made it until about 6:30pm, when she started getting sleepy and a little fussy, so we decided it was time to hit the road.  She slept in the car for about 45 mins, then laughed and talked the rest of the ride, and crashed as soon as she had her pj's on and her head hit the bed!

Sunday we went to Babies R Us to get formula (it was 30% off, woo hoo), but "somehow" we walked out of the store with a Baby Einstein jumper.... 

We already have an exersaucer AND  a doorway jumper, but Daddy just knew we needed a stand alone jumper as well (since she likes the one at Nonnie's so much).  Yup, she has him wrapped around her little finger already!  We also got her an adorable fleece hat and mitten set, so she can get ready for the cold weather!
We came back home and  when Peyton went down for her nap, Mommy got to go out by herself :)  I just ran to Kirkland's and Blockbuster, but it was some alone time I really needed since Edwin has been working SO much lately and I feel like a single Mommy most days.  I really wanted to look for some good deals for some house decorations for our new house (more details to come later), and I definitely found some!  After her nap, we ran to Nonnie's for a few minutes then came back home for one more short nap.  *It's an unwritten rule in our house that Peyton MUST sleep at least 1 1/2 hours for her afternoon nap, otherwise she'll never make it until bedtime without a 3rd short nap.  Daddy must have "forgotten" this rule (probably since Mommy does all naptimes and bedtimes) and let her get up after 45 mins just because "she didn't want to sleep anymore"*  So after a short 45 min nap, we went on our evening walk, came back for dinner and some play time, then the munchkin crashed by 6:30pm. 

Once she was in bed, the hubby and I watched "Splice".  I have to say, I wasn't really a fan.  It was more disturbing (in a gross way) than anything else.  So that was our not so exciting, but wonderful weekend!  It went by WAY too fast...and now I'm attempting to tackle Monday :(
