It's so hard to say goodbye...

First I wanted to let you know if you haven't already heard on twitter/facebook or IG the Giveaway for My Charming Colors ends next Friday January 27th, not last night. I apologize, I've been a bit discombobulated this week due to Scott leaving today on an international work trip. The good news is that you still get one more week to enter if you haven't done so already. You can enter here

That being said Judah is still not feeling well. All he wanted to do today was snuggle and read his books and sleep allot. I think its still a combination of him having a cold and also he is teething. He is chewing on anything he can get his hands on.

Since Scott was leaving today we decided to "triple child proof" our house. Especially now since Judah is walking and getting into everything! He can also break some of my child locks on my cabinets! So we bought better baby gates for the stairs. These open so I don't trip over them when I am taking down the laundry and try to hop over so I don't wake up Judah from a nap. Scott decided to put up the crib bumper along the stairwell because the gaps are spaced pretty wide. Although I would never leave Judah alone in the hall way we just wanted to be extra safe while Scott is gone.

When Judah woke up from his nap this afternoon he was beside himself because Scott was packing. He kept trying to take things out of Scott's suitcase or tried crawling inside of it. I took him downstairs and he wanted nothing to do with me, or food, or water, he just wanted his daddy. He was so upset and still pretty sick so he started blowing these huge snot bubbles. 

I think he knew Scott was leaving and at this point I was crying.  Since 9/11 I hate flying, I knew the pilot of the plane that went down in our area and I don't like talking about it. So by Judah freaking out made me freak out and we were just all crying. This was really hard.

Before we dropped Scott off at the airport we had a family Chick Fil A dinner date night. Gave Judah some of the vanilla milkshake since it was a special night.

Judah was content teething on the cheerio containers and eating the occasional nugget or cheerio.

Drove Scott to the airport and he quietly got out, grabbed his bags and went inside. We didn't want to make a big deal so Judah wouldn't have a huge meltdown.  The ride home after dropping someone off at the airport is the longest drive....

Praying time will fly by quickly....Judah is being extra feisty tonight and jumping/running/ doing back flips everywhere. He is also being extra cuddly and not wanting me to leave the room.

Its really hard to say goodbye, even if its just for a little while.

  1. Aww I hope the time passes quickly for you all!

  2. How long is he going to be gone for? My heart goes out to you, I hate to be alone, so it would drive me crazy! Hopefully the time will go quickly for you. proofing. Cash is 10 months and we still haven't baby-proofed. Bad parents. Working on parts of it this weekend.

    1. only a week so its not to to bad, would be better if Judah wasn't freaking out, I think he think his daddy left for good and he is so sad right now. Like taking his breakfast plate of food and throwing it in the air and crying. Its breaking my heart.

      Oh goodness it took us forever to baby proof. I think for me it was just so hard to really comprehend how Judah was going to get into everything. Like last night we prepared and stuck our mattress on the ground so Judah could still co-sleep with us. He loves crawling on and off the bed. But I had to empty our our nightstand drawers bc he figured out how to open them and try to grab for stuff! They are hard drawers to open. Then I have to figure out what to do with our built in bookshelf near the bed because he likes to try to climb up them. I had to take all the heavy books off the first 3 shelfs.....I think boys are harder to baby proof for. Every day I think of something new that I have to "baby proof"

  3. I love those snot bubbles!! I had to show the whole family. :)
