Morning distractions :)
Um. This is what I let my baby do while I'm eating breakfast. I suppose it could be worse and he really loved this colander! He grabbed and tossed this thing all over the counter for at least five minutes. Plenty of time to eat! (It's amazing how quickly I can stuff things into my mouth now!)
In other Benjamin news: He got 2 teeth on Saturday!!! He has been teething for a while now and I noticed on Friday that you could barely see little teeth. They weren't through yet, but he was drooling like crazy (which is fairly normal for him) and his nose started running. He had a little fever and hated life. I know this because he was not pleasant at all (well, maybe for a little bit) on Friday and I think somewhere in his whining he said "This isn't fun. I want to be back in the womb". He woke up several times Friday night and on Saturday morning, there they were! Two at once, poor thing! But, man, is this kid efficient or what? I wouldn't want to pop one out at a time either :) I was super excited for him and love that I get to be apart of little and big things that he does and experiences!
Finally, Patrick leaves for Switzerland on Tuesday. Patrick and Kent are going to Switzerland for a vacation. To do "man things" and get away for a while. They were going to go to Montana, but it was nearly the same price to go to Switzerland. Good deal searching, guys! I'm excited for Patrick to getaway and be refreshed. But he will be very missed. He will be gone until Saturday. Any survival or entertaining advice on caring for a baby all day and all night for six days would be appreciated. The most I've done on my own is three nights, what's two more?
I'm going to make some coffee in my french press now and get my day sorted, and laundry folded, and errands planned...
