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.


Our day(s):*

6:30 wake up

7:00-ish breakfast

8:30-ish bottle

10:00 nap

11:00-ish bottle

noon lunch

2:00 bottle & nap 

4:00 bottle

5:30-ish dinner

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.

    Have you started saying “you guys” in a nasally way, yet?

  5. milkymilk

    No way! I will never give up ya’ll.

    I also do not say “pop” or “soda” when referring to Coke, unless I’m being cheeky. I wonder if Harper will call Coke, pop, and say you guys and not ya’ll.

    She may even say, “Da bearssss”, and mean it!
