It’s Been A Few Days Since I Posted A List

October 7, 2010 at 7:26 am 16 comments

– Do you miss the lists?

– I’ve had my glasses since last Friday. I went back to the eye doctor on Tuesday to have them readjust them because they were too tight behind my ears. They still feel a tad bit tight but I’m scared if I have them loosen them anymore, they’ll fall off. Is it something I need to get used to? Or do I need to take them back in to have them readjusted again (re-readjusted)?

– It’s 10:35 on Wednesday night and Jansen has been WIDE AWAKE since 8:00. I hope that means he’s going to sleep well tonight. Monday and Tuesday night he slept in his bassinet instead of his swing. (You know, like a normal human being.) It went well. I’m hoping we have a few more good nights in the bassinet so I can move him to his crib.

– He has a Baby Einstein Pack N Play set up in our living room. It has this thing that hangs above him that plays music and has flashing lights. He LOVES it. He lays there and stares at it! Unfortunately the song and lights only last about a minute or two and then you have to push the button to make it start again.

– And now he’s asleep on my lap. PASSED OUT. Like, hard! His mouth is wide open and his binky is on his chest. Goodness gracious this kid is cute!

– I sat down yesterday to cash in all my Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards. APPARENTLY you can only make 2 purchases in the Swag Store per day. UGH. I have enough Swagbucks to buy 36 $5 giftcards. It’s going to take me 18 days to finish buying them! I wish I would have known that ahead of time. Then it takes 10-15 days for the Amazon store credit to show up in your account. So I’ll be done with this process in about 33 days. Dumb.

– Jansen is awake again. He’s farting and smiling and it is so cute.

– Did you catch my Tweet on Tuesday night? Frito Lay is discontinuing the biodegradable Sun Chips bag because it’s too noisy. It IS too noisy. Every time we go to the grocery store, Stephen grabs one from the shelf and makes as much noise as he can before I say, “Yeah. OKAY!”

– I’m no longer pregnant but I’m still addicted to Double Stuf Oreos. I think I’ll allow myself to keep this addiction until I stop breastfeeding, then I’ll need to get it under control. I just can’t help it, they are Heavenly. I swear, Nabisco needs to jar that icing.

– Has anyone seen The Social Network? Is it good? I kind of want to see it because I think it looks interesting. I also want to see Life As We Know It… not sure if that’s out yet. Stephen and I recently rented The Killers and Valentine’s Day from RedBox. Neither were excellent, but neither were bad. One thing I was reminded of? I love Ashton Kutcher!

– I thought I’d leave you with the photos I took of Jansen on his one month birthday. Each month I will take two photos of his in his custom monthly onesie- one up close to show his cuteness and the cuteness of the onesie, and one far back to show his growth in the chair.

    Wow. He’s already so much bigger.

    PS I’ve heard really good things about the Social Network. Haven’t seen it myself, but that’s more of a lack of time/money.

    Oh and oreos are delicious! We bought a case of the Halloween ones. Was unsure about the whole orange icing part, but somehow they’re better than the regular oreos.

    I was addicted to Double Stuffed Oreos while I was nursing my daughter. I still lost a ton of weight while breast feeding, but I’m avoiding them this time around, just in case. Unfortunately, I seem to have replaced that addiction with gumdrops.

    Regarding your glasses – you do not need to just get used to them fitting poorly…i speak from experience. If they don’t feel comfortable, you will stop wearing them and just go back to contacts, which would be a huge wste. Keep going back to have them adjusted until they are right…trust me, they are used to it!

  • 4. Veronica  |  October 7, 2010 at 8:43 am

    i love your lists. i can’t wait to see y’all in a few weeks!

  • 5. osarah  |  October 7, 2010 at 8:48 am

    I agree with Bec about the glasses. I had issues with the nose pieces being too tight on my glasses but didn’t want to bother the people at the store to loosen then (for the 3rd time). I went in, but then they got too loose. I went back. Now they are ok. Go get them fixed! 🙂

    Where did you get the custom onesies?

  • 7. Nora  |  October 7, 2010 at 9:25 am

    I love Double Stuf oreos and I’m not pregnant or breast feeding… what’s my excuse!? 😉

    And Ashton Kutcher, be still my heart. I want to see Life as We Know It too. I don’t know much about The Social Network so I can’t help you out there but if you go let us know how it is!

  • 8. Autumn @ One Boy and Two Cats  |  October 7, 2010 at 9:41 am

    I also am hooked on all things Oreo, and I have bo good excuse. Putting that stuff in a jar would put me in the Coronary Grave.
    LOVE the onsie pic idea!
    You’re right… that’s one cute baby!

  • 9. Autumn @ One Boy and Two Cats  |  October 7, 2010 at 9:42 am

    I meant… “NO” good excuse!

  • 10. deiala  |  October 7, 2010 at 10:01 am

    Regarding your glasses I have to agree with the above ladies… If you don’t feel comfortable get them readjusted. But also give your ears time to adjust. If you don’t feel comfortable after two weeks have them changed!

    In the last picture Jansen looks like a doll. Is he always as peaceful as he looks here?

  • 11. Karen  |  October 7, 2010 at 10:44 am

    So sweet!!

  • 12. Ashley  |  October 7, 2010 at 10:45 am

    I saw The Social Network awhile ago at a screening and it is SO GOOD! It’s oddly fascinating and surprisingly captivating. When it ended it didn’t feel like any time had passed because I got so caught up in the story and how they frame the plot. Most of my friends (and blog friends, and friends of friends…) have seen it and they all love it, too. So, definitely recommend!

  • 13. Sara  |  October 7, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Definitely get the glasses loosened up more! You really shouldn’t even feel them behind your ears, honestly. They won’t fall off!

    Lovin’ the Jansen photo!

  • 14. Lauren from Texas  |  October 7, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I love this idea & I love the onesies! There should be a toy or something in the chair too so we can see how much bigger he is than a teddy bear or something. Unless you think that’s a dumb idea. 😉

    What a sweet, healthy, content little bundle. Precious!

  • 16. Angela  |  October 7, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    It seems to take me forever to earn enough swagbucks to cash in for amazon gift cards. As soon as I get enough for one, I cash in immediately. Much easier that way. I’m up to about $55.

    Jansen is so stinking adorable.
