Great start to the morning, woke up a little late due to another sleepless kind of night for the baby. Poor little girl is in a routine in which she wakes up at least twice a night and needs to be fed, calmed or changed. We really need to work on how to help her sleep through the night. Our first options: move her nap in the afternoon to earlier and make it shorter, make her bedtime earlier, and finally I will be sleeping with her binky for a couple nights so that it will pick up my scent (when we put it in the crib with her, if she wakes up, she should be able to get comfort from my smell on her binky). Testing this out tonight to see if any of these things ease her sleep a little bit, and help me and daddy get some much needed rest.
After waking up, my husband was surprised by some gifts the little one had left out in the night, including: our favourite instagram photo of her framed for his desk at work, a personalized card from the baby (thumbprint heart on cover), a GelaSkin for his phone with a photo of the baby on it, and some big league chew (grape, his favourite). Then it was mama's task to make him breakfast and coffee, which I did with a big smile on my face. I love celebrating my husband, it's one of my favourite things to do (so I made him his favourite breakfast wrap, with his favourite Keurig coffee).
We grabbed some Chinese food for lunch, the hubby's choice, grabbed a seat at Waterloo Public Square and enjoyed the goofy and fun sounds of The Skalywags. The babe was a little put out by the loudness of the music and put her fingers in her ears, but she didn't have a problem later when she fell asleep listening to them.
Once we were home we enjoyed our pulled pork sandwiches on pretzel buns from Vincenzo's (our favourite deli). I made myself a special sauce of avocado with feta cheese and a dash of lemon. My husband enjoyed his with mustard and BBQ sauce. We settled in and watched the little one go a bit crazy as she scooted around the apartment. We had one moment which she somehow managed to get her finger stuck in a drawer and we got so scared. She was fine, a little frazzled, I think we were more worried than anything.
All in all it was a perfect first Father's Day. My husband was relaxed, even with the little one going a bit bonkers at times, but I think I was able to pull off everything he wanted and needed for the day. Now off to cuddle up with our baby girl.
