Skylar and I began our Christmas shopping today, and it was not as stressful as I had anticipated. Hopefully, this holiday season will be smooth like butter.
I also got my hair cut, and can I just say, I feel fabulous. That is right, I do. I missed my last appointment, at the end of October, which is not like me at all. I L-O-V-E, love, the girl who cuts my hair, Laura at Luxe. Really, my favorite ever. My hair was crazy overgrown and has been in an awkward ponytail for a at least a week. I feel so much better now.
Harper cried while I was at the salon. I would like to think it was because she missed me, but I don’t think that was it. Two and a half weeks ago, I had it with her taking one half hour nap a day. She started that when she was about 6 months. I put her on a nap schedule. It led to her napping for at least an hour, sometimes two! Before I knew it, her day was totally scheduled, she was taking two good naps a day, and sleeping though the night (jinx)! Today, I treated this schedule with disregard, because we were Christmas shopping, hello. She did not cope with this as well as I though she would. (It is her first Christmas, after-all.) Low and behold, the baby loves her schedule. I like it, too. Although, two naps kinda infringe on our social life.
6:30 wake up
2:00 bottle & nap
by 7:00 bath, bottle, bed
*Now that this is in writing it will never happen again. That is cool, though. I have a lot more holiday shopping to do.
