Hey friends, I've decided it's time for me to take a little hiatus from blogging.
I've been burning the candle from both and ends and we all know how that turns out. After some reflection this weekend, I decided I need to take a break from SuperSmartMama so that I can focus my energies on some key areas of my life that need a little extra attention:
Bottom line? I need to spend more time with this cutie. He's my first kid and he knows it. Spoiled with mama's love, now he has to watch me spend all my time with Baby O and I'm still working on the right formula to find time so that we can hang out on our own at least a couple of times a week.
Baby O is now sleeping great at night (knock on wood!); the other night she set a new record, sleeping for 6 hours straight (whoo hoo!), but she is still a terror during the day. If I'm not holding her in my arms or in a sling, she will cry. Driving in the car doesn't do it, and walking her in the stroller is only a 50-50 guarantee. So I'm hanging in there hoping maturity will fix the problem. We continue to work on tummy time and getting her interested in her activity mat, because I'm thinking that once she's more interested in the world than always being with me, I can set her down for more than 5 minutes before she has a meltdown.
We bought a new BOB to replace our old BOB and I'm hoping this baby will allow me to get out there and start running!! Related to Baby O not wanting to be set down for more than 5 minutes at a time, I need her to be happy sitting (or sleeping) on her own during the day so that I can pop in a yoga DVD or ride the spin bike in our basement. Anything so I can get some endorphins during the day, you know?!
Having moved twice in the last three years, I write a lot of letters. Just finding the time to send out Valentine's Day cards this year was a real challenge, but I get such joy out of sending out special notes to my friends who don't live in Colorado. Plus, we're finally making friends IN Colorado which means alot of playdates. The other night we hosted pizza & movies for the kids at our house, which can take time to put together (but totally worth it).
Be back in a bit!
I'll still be around, reading all of your blogs and keeping up with how the world turns for you. I just won't be posting here for a short while. I'm thinking a week or two should help me get my groove back. When I can, I'll still be sharing a bit of what's going on with me on Instagram so feel free to follow me there!
