My Mother's Day started quite early; 12:01 a.m. to be exact. Both Mike and I were woken up by Travis and as we were sitting there in the living room, Mike looked and me and said "Happy Mothers Day!!"
I sent Mike back to bed and I stayed up with Travis from 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. He was inconsolable for some reason. You see Travis now has this "thing" that he has to hold something i.e. a small strip of paper, plastic ring off the milk jug, whatever is small and you can't see what he has hidden in his hands. WHEN (not if) he loses it at night, he becomes frantic and I think that is what happened on Sunday morning and we just couldn't calm him down. Finally at 4 a.m. Mike came out and put Travis in bed with him and I laid down and fell right asleep. Apparently Travis did too (I don't think Daddy got much sleep tho).
Travis was up and at 'em as soon as he heard his brothers wake up on the monitor....6 a.m...right on track!
Mike let me sleep until 8:45 when Lauren couldn't wait any longer to eat. Pancakes were on the menu and I didn't have to cook them!! The boys went down for their nap shortly after I got up.
I hung out with Lauren and opened my gifts. She painted me a picture frame and put a picture of herself in it as well as a glass angel which she paid for herself. Mike gave me an 11" digital picture frame. I've been hinting that I needed a new one since Ian broke my other one!! And of course, I had cards from everyone!
As soon as the boys went down for a nap, Mike took one as well. Once Mike woke from his nap he found me napping on the couch with Lauren....darn it...I was sent back to bed for another nap. Later on the day, we had Nana, Ted, Tiff, Justin and Ava come visit.
Unfortunately, no pictures were taken yesterday :-( Not having enough sleep and one of the boys being off schedule really threw me off. But it was nice to sleep in, eat without having to cook anything ALL DAY and spending time with family!! Not sure it could get any better!
And look at this....2 posts so far in the month of May!!!
