Well, this weekend marked the end of the third week with Baby O and all predictability has gone out of our schedule. I have a feeling that if I don't come up with a plan for blog posts, many of my future posts are going to go out late in the day... sigh.
That's not to say we didn't have some fun sprinkled through the weekend. But Saturday I was not the nicest person in the world.
We'll get to that.
I think our visitors (mother-in-law and partner) have now figured out that you can tell what the day will be like just from the way my husband and I appear in the kitchen each morning. Are we alert and smiling? Or do we slog into the kitchen after 9am with our eyes closed and a crease between our eyebrows?
Friday we woke up happy and relatively rested.
We started our day with a late brunch at one of our favorite brunch places, Devil's Food Bakery & Cookery. Lots of good eats, and a tempting pastry layout which you have to stare at while you wait for a seat:
After a looong brunch, we headed over to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science so that the three year old could have his turn at fun:
SaturdayIn contrast, on Saturday, I woke up feeling discombobulated - what day was it? - and spent the entire day in my pajamas:
Thank goodness I had these two happy faces to keep me smiling:
I think my Saturday went something like this: wake up at 9am, eat breakfast, go back to sleep with baby for much of the middle of the day, late lunch around 2 or 3pm, back to bed for another nap. While I was doing all that sleeping, my husband did his best to spend lots of time with our son:
When I finally woke up from my day of slumber, I found dinner ready (thank you mother-in-law!!):
And the opening of one Christmas present:
Despite all those peaceful happy looking pictures, I did have a minor meltdown before my afternoon nap. My son was running around asking me 101 questions and I was trying to get the kitchen somewhat clean (what does your kitchen look like when there are four different people cooking around the clock?!), and I was sleep deprived, and well... you probably get the picture.
Baby O slept like a champ on Saturday night, stretching the break between feedings from 2 hours to 3 hours. I woke up Sunday morning feeling like a new person! We went exploring around downtown Denver, checking out Union Station and the Tattered Cover Bookstore:
Then we went home for afternoon naps and recharging before heading out one more time for the Zoo Lights at the Denver Zoo. The weather cooperated... it was in the high 40s and despite the crowds, we were able to walk through the entire zoo in less than two hours.
Towards the end of our walk around the zoo, it started raining so we dashed home. That night the rain turned into snow and Monday morning greeted us with the following view:
How was your weekend? Was it packed with lots of holiday activities?
