2 Months!

Oh my goodness, it's been 3 months since I posted! I'll be better, I promise! A LOT has happened:

  • We FINALLY got the nursery organized and ready for our little Peanut to arrive!
  • I learned the quickest routes to the essential destinations near our house (grocery store, pharmacy, park, Chipotle), since my beloved TomTom was stolen. We also got a new (to us) Explorer, to replace my car, which was totalled back in December.
  • On June 11, I woke up with chest pain, not severe, just annoying. I'd had it once before, and it went away after I ate. Not this time! At Noon, I called my doctor to ask what I should take, and they told me to go ahead and come in to St. John's, just to be sure everything was OK. After a CT scan to rule out a blood clot, and a BP that would not come down, it was decided that Baby Wells would make his grand appearance! (I'll fill you in on all the hairy details, but that's a blog for another day)
  • Mike and I survived our first month as parents! We developed a great routine, thanks to Caden's amazing ability to sleep, and to smile just when I am about to lose it completely.
  • We were finally able to transition from disposable to cloth diapers! Caden was too teeny to fit in even the XS size, so we had to use the stash we got from our showers. In the meantime, we discovered that Pampers are the ONLY brand that work on Caden's tushie. I'm still working on converting Mike to the cloth diaper movement, but I'm lovin' it!
  • I came to terms with who my friends are, and who they aren't. I'm a people pleaser, and it really rocked my world to move from a place where I had already succeeded in pleasing everyone around me, to a place where I knew absolutely no one. I've never had any shortage of close friends and family, even when I moved to college, until I moved to live with my husband; I just had to get used to having no one else to talk to. It wasn't until Caden was born that I realized how important it is to be able to have a conversation with another person. I am so thankful that our friends from college are still in our life, and am so glad that we live so close to them now, and can hang out more now that Caden can handle being out of the house now!
  • I officially resigned from my job, which wasn't a hard decision to make, but was a little disappointing, since I LOVED my job, and I would've been making real progress in my position with the company, had I come back to work.
  • I started sewing! I learned to make sock monkeys in college, and the mood hit me to make some for Caden. When I looked on the internet for new monkey ideas, I found all these other cute things to sew, so I decided that I want a sewing machine for Christmas, so I can help save money buy sewing clothes and things for Caden and for our friends!
