Week 14

When life gives you lemons... go buy a gigantic bottle of wine from Sam's club.(My friend Terri introduced me to a delicious Riesling that is literally 4 feet tall, I bought 2.) That's just the kind of week I'm having. The Astor's have a lot going on this week. Tim left for Augusta last Wednesday. School's not over until this Friday. Movers also come this Friday. Then Mommy, MomMom, and Nolen drive 8 hours to Augusta. Fun,fun! To top it all off, Little Man has decided that he no longer likes to sleep. He likes to wake up every 1-2 hours, all night long, every night. Tired. I've read a lot about something called the 4-month wakeful. It says that when a baby is going through a developmental milestone (rolling over, getting hand coordination, etc.) then they stop sleeping because because their little brains are busy acquiring the new skill. Well this just confirms my suspicions, Little one is advanced. He is going through his 4-month wakeful a whole month early! Genius. Either that or he's acquiring a REALLY big new skill (walking at 3 months anyone?!?)
To top it all off, Nolen is also due for his 4 month shots the week we move. These shots can't be done a week early (at our current doctor) or a week late (to give me time to find a new pediatrician.) So, after months of researching, and meeting doctors in Celebration (and finally finding one I loved) I am now putting my son in the care of a doctor that I found on Google.

(I was sure to use the word "great" in my pediatrician search, that way I would only get the best. right.)

Next week can only get better and until then...Starbucks, you are my friend.


  1. He is getting cuter and cuter every day!

  2. Easton has been doing the same waking up 1-2 hours in the night again too. Last week was great with 5 hour nights, and now he has reverted. Awww, maybe it has something to do with little boys born on February 22. They want to play tricks on their Mamas!

  3. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Stop by anytime! Your blog is lovely, and your lil' guy is such a cutie. Isn't motherhood the best??! I look forward to reading more... :)

  4. Thanks so much for the sweet comment. Your son is absolutely darling! Harper went through her 4 month wakeful a month early as well... it does get better. Promise! Love reading your blog!

  5. Thanks for stopping by! Your son has gorgeous eyes.... I love them! Looks like you have a lot on your plate right now. Hang in there! :)

  6. He's adorable!

    Well, at least with the pediatrician if you're really not a fan, you can switch again. It's nice to not be locked in forever.
