Here is a quick recap of the other things we've been up to this month. Parker's Halloween candy has lasted for several weeks. He get a piece or two after dinner each night. He lined up all his M&Ms by color one night then said the color before eating each one.
These carts have become our reality these days. They are so cute and keep the kids moderately occupied. Parker likes to throw stuff out of the cart if not distracted these days.
Mall dates night made a triumphant come back this month as well. We visited Eden Prairie Center last week. It was all decked out for Christmas!
We've been dealing with a lot of sickness this month. Cold and stomach bugs, and colds and more colds. We've had a lot of down time and fatigue, but the kids haven't been phased much. Luckily we found that Moana music videos can give us 10-15 minutes or quiet stillness. Both kiddos love watching (and we don't mind either.)
Parker recorded his first vlog this month and even gave Esme a cameo. It's too cute not to share.
Here he is singing "You're Welcome" from Moana. Right now he just does the one at the end, but it's good progress.
Lastly, we have talked about getting a new bed for years. We've been sleeping on the mattress Jimmy had when we met 10 years ago (on November 20th). So it's 11-12 years old and a full size. We knew we wanted to try one of the memory foam, bed-in-a-box, options and settled on the Leesa. Not just because of it's awesome name, but because it was the least expensive of the big names that have consistently positive reviews. We ordered a new platform frame and they both arrived Friday night.
I knew the frame was quick connect, but I didn't realize how quick. We had it all set up less than 30 minutes after delivery! Jimmy was sold on the first night, but I am neutral still. I've been a side sleeper since my first pregnancy and may need to return being a back sleeper, but we'll see.
