Happy St. Patty's Day!
Grandma and Grandpa Edwards came over last weekend and brought this fantastic outfit for Gideon to wear on St. Patty's Day! He wore it to Olive Garden for lunch with daddy and Grandma and Grandpa Mathis. It was nice to get out of the house in the middle of the day and visit Mac even if Gideon decided to be a little fussy in the restaurant. I think he just wanted daddy and grandma's attention. Who hasn't been there, right?
Spring Break is supposed to be relaxing but it has been stressful around the Edwards house. It all started last week when Mac's granddad passed away. Mac got up early Saturday morning and drove to Silverton for the funeral and came back Sunday afternoon. Gideon was up allllll night Friday night so Saturday morning Grandpa John came over and gave mommy a nap break. Grandpa and Grandma Adams came over Saturday afternoon with lunch and then Grandma and Grandpa Mathis AND Aunt Bethany came over Saturday night to celebrate Grandma and Grandpa Mathis's Birthdays. It was a looooong and full day, thank god my mom stayed the night to help me with Gideon. Gideon and Grandma are so cute together; he really likes all of her songs. Actually Gideon is cute with all of his grandparents, we are SOOOO lucky to have them all close by. Late Sunday night, the cold I had been nursing since Thursday turned into full blown Tonsillitis misery, so Monday morning I went to CareNow for anitbiotics and vicodin and spent the rest of the day and night in bed trying to keep my germs away from an already congested Gideon. Poor Mac took the night shift all by himself two nights in a row so thankfully by Wednesday night I was healthy enough to be a help. I think Gideon sensed out need for sleep because last night he slept 6 hours in a row! Mac said he woke up at 2am in a panic. (normally Gideon would have woken us at 10:00 and then 1:00). Fingers crossed that he keeps this up! (Mommy thinks it is because she is keeping to a strict every three hour feeding schedule, keeping the lights and TV on during the day, and not allowing naps over 3 hours long.)
Alright time to go wash some bottles!
