weekend review {Mother's Day edition}



These pictures are just a peek into my weekend through my phone. I'll go into detail a little more with my narration. I just don't want to forget celebrating my first real Mother's Day :)
I was so excited to celebrate over the weekend, but of course life had other plans! Friday evening we went to a BBQ and I got to play sand volleyball while Eric kept Mia. It was so fun even though even though I suck :) That night Mia woke up around 1:30 to eat, but then she was up crying for the next 2 hours. I should have known something war wrong, but I was just so exhausted and frustrated with her! I finally tried to feed her again around 3:30 (Mia will NOT eat if she's not hungry. Eating is not her "go to" for comfort) so I swaddled her up and she fell asleep on my bed. Eric took Mia back to her room when suddenly she threw up on him. I felt so awful, no wonder she'd been fussing all night! I changed her (because it got all over Eric... for some twisted reason I wanted to high five Mia for puking on dad instead of mom, ha!) and put her in her crib. I went back to bed and watched her in the monitor when after a couple minutes she threw up in her sleep. I ran and got her and gave her a bath. Once Eric was done with his shower he threw everything in the washer. Once Mia was cleaned up I brought her to bed with me where she fell into a good, deep sleep. After calling my mom at 4am (I was so worried about Mia!) Eric set up the pack n play and Mia slept right next to our bed. Once Eric switched the laundry to the dryer we finally went to sleep, around 5:30. Of course Eric got a couple phone calls from work, which he didn't hear but they woke me and Mia..... ah! I think I got an hour of sleep from 1:30-8. It was the hardest night to date! But Mia was all better and totally herself by morning, thank goodness!
I was way excited to see what Eric had planned for Saturday. He surprised me with some roses.... and then got called into work. I was already frustrated that they woke us up at an unreasonable hour (even more unreasonable because I'd only been asleep for maybe a half hour the first time they called, ha!) but I just wanted to be pampered, ha! I know... so snotty. But I mostly felt so awful that Eric was running on as little sleep as I was. I promise I'm grateful for Eric's job!
Sunday ended up being perfect! Mia let us all catch up on much needed sleep :) Eric made me breakfast complete with those little chocolate donuts. I must admit, I still miss those hostess donuts! I may have dressed Mia to match me as much as possible, but she loved it (ha ha). Eric grilled salmon and asparagus for lunch. We went on a walk and enjoyed the beautiful, sunny weather. Eric made German pancakes for dinner and a lemon meringue pie for dessert. We ended the night with a movie in bed while Eric played with my hair, my favorite thing ever! So the weekend totally didn't go as planned, but Sunday was just perfect!
Once again, I'm so grateful for Eric and Mia, the reasons I get to celebrate Mother's Day. And of course I'm grateful for our mom's and all the other mom's that I learn from daily!

Poor baby! Did you ever figure out what was wrong with her? Did she have a fever?
Happy Belated Mother's Day.

Leslee said...

sorry about your little one. Just wait though.....when they are 3 and throw up in the night (twice) the mess is Much Bigger......We just went through that sleepless night stuff about a week ago. SO NOT COOL!! I was at least glad my little man could Yell for me and tell me he threw up. Glad she's feeling better. Happy Mothers day.
