Last night we decided to introduce Graham to a fruit. We waited a few days after we introduced the sweet potatoes to make sure he didn't have a food allergy to them. It appeared that he didn't....so....bananas he tried. he wasn't as eager to eat them as he was the sweet potatoes but he still gobbled them down without any trouble at all. I have a feeling that he's going to be fine with any food as long as he is eating. If that is the case, he will definitely take after his Uncle Steven who will eat ANY and EVERYTHING. Uncle Steven would be so proud. :)
I do have to say that the bananas were a MESS!! With the sweet potatoes, the mess wasn't too bad because he did NOT want to let one single bit go to waste. 'nanas were different. but all in all he liked them...especially when I would sing crazy songs and make some really WEIRD faces. and then shove the spoon in his mouth. ha!
As you can see in the pictures, Graham has terrible scratches all over his face. :( Mommy didn't bite off graham's fingernails as much as I should have and I left sharp edges on his nails. when i picked him up from daycare and saw what had happened, i felt like to worst mother in the world. i was so sad and i cried all the way home. no exaggeration. i really did cry all the way home. he even scratched his eyeball!! :( from now on, he is getting a full on manicure and pedicure!
Today, i have been feeling so down and overwhelmed. i was fine until after work and i walked in the door to the house. baby stuff everywhere. purses everywhere. unfolded laundry covering the guest bedroom. unmade bed. g's clothes needing to be hung up. bottles to be washed. dishes to be scrubbed and washed. floors that need a really good hard moppin. dinner to be cooked. kitchen that needs to be clean. bathrooms that need to be clean. LOTS of dusting to do. so much organization that needs to happen. i just feel like i am NEVER going to get everything done and i am NEVER going to have our lives in order. chad does so great at helping me. when he can. he works late nights. and now when he gets home, he has to do his online schooling. i absolutely HATE having a messy house and that's probably why we don't have friends over. i am embarrassed at the way things look. i just don't know how people do it. i'm a perfectionist and things aren't perfect anymore. how do full time working moms do it? i wish we could afford a maid but with already paying THOUSANDS of dollars a month in bills, there is just no way we can afford an extra expense. i feel as if i am in a big hole and will never be able to climb out. am i going through postpartum? are these feelings normal? i'm also sad because i feel like i don't get to spend enough time with graham either because i am always doing chores.
g is awake from his nap and i need to finish cleaning and cook dinner.
does anyone have any suggestions to make juggling everything easier???
