Sunday Coffee Date

Good morning!

I have a confession to make. I don't have a coffee yet but I hopefully  will soon. So this is technically a pre-coffee date.

I've been relying a little more on caffeine lately and I'm not sure if it's a lack of sleep or the extra rain Vancouver has been experiencing. I'm hoping I can fit a nice nap in today. Does anyone else get as affected by the weather as I do? I think it rained for 28 days in the month of October. I actually don't mind the rain because I love how cozy a good rainy day is but 28 days is a lot of cozy!

I am very excited to be decked out in my new Seahawks shirt that Kevin picked up for me at the game last Monday. Mostly because now I match my boys! 

I know you've been dying to hear an update about my closet debacle and I think I've finally mapped out a game plan. One thing I know is that I'm definitely going to have to purge some of my clothes. I have way too much stuff for a woman who never has anything to wear. I decided to tackle my storage dilemma by adding a dresser into the closet as well as a few other temporary storage solutions and I'll see how that goes. I can't say it's a Pinterest worthy dream closet but I feel very fortunate to have the closet that we have so I won't complain. In time we will hopefully be able to use the space in our closet more efficiently. The space is there but it's not getting used as well as it could.

Thomas is now 4 months old and he's getting cuter and cuter by the day. I'm obviously not biased at all on the topic of my child's cuteness. We recently started seeing a new family doctor and upon first impression I really like him. We had a conversation about Thomas and his sleeping habits which left me feeling understood and hopeful. He reminded me that Thomas is running off of instinct and doesn't have any hidden motives. If he wants to be with me while he's sleeping then that's what he needs to feel safe. It's what he needs to learn and grow. Every baby is different so it's easy to get caught up in what I should be doing but if listening to my baby and his needs is what I'm most comfortable with (and it's not compromising my health) then that's okay. I'm loving every second with Thomas so I haven't felt motivated to try to get him make any huge changes. He is making strides in the independence department which is all I can ask from a 4 month old but there is so much literature out there that tries to tell me how to change him. It was just nice to have my feelings validated by a doctor.

Now if I do decide to really push some different habits on him I'm glad there are resources available but for now I'm going to trust my instincts and cross my fingers I'm not completely screwing Thomas up haha. Who am I kidding, I'm sure I'll screw him up somehow, I'll just try to do the least amount of damage I can.

Kevin just finished making some delicious looking chocolate chip pancakes so I'm ready to dig into those. I also have an adorable Seahawks fan lounging on the couch after his nap who looks in need of a snuggle. I hope you all have a great Sunday!
