Friday Mommy Randoms

Just our new normal going on around the Layman's house this week...plenty of things to write about but sometimes there's just not enough time in the day to play with Elyse & blog--and what would you choose?!?

So a list of random thoughts from Momma Layman is all I've got for today...

~We've finally settled into some sort of normalcy here in the Layman household. I go to work Monday, Tuesday & Friday and I stay home with Elyse on Wednesday & Thursday. She eats basically every day at 7:30am, 10:00am, 1:00pm, 4:00pm, 7:00pm, 10:00pm, and then sometime between 4am & 5am. The middle of the night feeding seriously doesn't bother me because we're both only awake for about 30 minutes and then it's back to sleep for Mommy & Daughter.

Fresh out of the bath and ready for her pjs!

~I have been fighting a bit of a stomach bug since Tuesday. I honestly don't feel bad except for some nausea and getting sick in the middle of the night on Tuesday...I'm just really hoping that Elyse doesn't come down with it.

~With a new cookbook from Christmas and all the fabulous Pinterest recipes, I've made it a goal to try a new recipe most every week. Tonight I made Chicken Cordon Bleu from the Our Best Bites Cookbook. I didn't actually eat it because I was feeling ucky, but Hubby said it was delicious.

~It's been an absolutely gorgeous day here. Elyse & I went to Springfield with my mom to run some errands and she was an absolute gem...of course she is such a happy baby so it wasn't really a surprise that she was so good!

~Nick & I had planned to take a family vacation to Gulf Shores sometime in May but due to some scheduling issues, we've decided to push back the week long vacation to September. Our 5th wedding anniversary is on May 19th and I was pretty bummed about not going anywhere. So...what do we do instead?!? We plan a trip for just the two of Chicago. We'll be gone less than 48 hours and my parents have already agreed to keep Elyse. I know she'll be just fine & we will have a fabulous time in the Windy City...but that doesn't keep the "bad-mommy" whispers from sneaking through!

~And probably the most exciting thing for the week...which is pretty dang exciting to this momma...Elyse rolled over from her belly to her back on Tuesday night! She did it about 6 times, and it was absolutely adorable...but she WILL NOT do it again. We do have video to prove it which we're very thankful for, but we so badly want her to do it again! I guess she'll do it on her own time! I can't believe she's rolling over already!
