Jacob woke up wearing his grumpy pants today. I suspect that he probably overslept last night since he went to bed at 7:30 p.m. and woke up at 9:20 a.m today….and sometimes when I’ve overslept I wear grumpy pants too. He didn’t want any real breakfast today so he had orange juice and applesauce….I have a sneaky suspicion that he’s got a nasty cold on the way – which would be ironic wouldn’t it? Since the doctor commented at his appointment about how long its been since Jacob’s been sick – I knew we were doomed when those words came out of his mouth! I felt like screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO doctor we dont’ talk about that out loud! If getting a cold around Christmas time wasn’t enough of a pain in the butt – Jacob’s top two molars are coming in making his GRUMPY pants seem even bigger today!
We mostly hung out around the house wearing jammies but then we decided mid-afternoon (since Jacob was all anti-napping) to go for a walk, grab some lunch, and hit the post office. On our way back from our walk we grabbed a Poinsetta Flower for the house to add a bit more festivity – the snow was falling by then and Jacob was as excited as ever! By the time we reached the house again he had passed out in the stroller but my attempt to make a smooth stroller to crib transfer was unsuccessful and a short while later we were watching FROSTY the snowman for the 100th time this holiday season. Around 3 pm I decided I had enough of cranky boy who didn’t want to nap and I tried to get Jacob to lay down with me – bad idea. So after another 35 minutes Jacob finally went down for a nap and slept until 530 p.m. When he woke up he was wearing his happy pants! I was so relieved!
