Life with Lucas {week 14}

Whew! I am almost totally caught up now with all of these blog posts. Never again am I going out of town around the 19th of the many "monthly" things of Lucas's I still have to do!! 

I recapped the first part of Lucas's 14th week here, but now you can read about what we did after we got back from Ohio!

Monday morning 8 AM, you better believe I was on my computer. Had to shop the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale, duh! I got on right at 8 and had over 16,000 people in front of me in the virtual line. Luckily, I got into the sale within half an hour or so and frantically added as much as I could to my cart. This guy just stared at me like I was crazy (which I probably was...screaming at my computer when it froze up, or something disappeared from my cart). 

Poor guy didn't get anything, but I did gets lots for Ella and myself! Lilly needs to bring back the boys clothes so Lucas can match us!

Monday afternoon, it wasn't quite as hot as it has been so we went to the playground.

Side note: my friend let us borrow one of these hats to help Lucas's flat head. She had used it with her little girl, which is why it's pink, and I don't think Lucas was a fan! 

Has anyone used these hats they work? If so, I'm going to keep forcing the pink on him...real men wear pink, Lucas!

Tuesday we went to the mall. After spending a small fortune at the Lilly sale, I decided to return some boots I had recently purchased. I'm trying to be practical. It was painful to return those boots, but I know my husband will be happy! 

We also went to story time at PBK and ran into a familiar face!

...And because Lilly Pulitzer hadn't gotten enough of my money already, we stopped by the actual store to see if they had anything else that wasn't online. (I didn't find anything!)

That afternoon, I finally decided to try Lucas out in his crib for a nap!

He did so well, we had him sleep in his crib that night, too! 

Wednesday morning, he was so happy about his new sleeping arrangement! It's definitely hard on me when my babies move to their cribs, but I know they can't sleep next to me in the Rock n Play forever. Plus, this will probably help shape Lucas's head a lot better, too! 

Then we met our contractor at the tile store to pick out tile for our bathroom!

This is what we went with...

I'm totally copying Classic Annie because I love her bathroom remodel so much ;) Thanks girl! 

After nap, it was time for another visit to the hematologist. Lucas was less than excited about it. 

But at least they always have fun toys for Ella to play with while we wait! 

Like I mentioned yesterday, Lucas's hemoglobin is finally at a normal level and is stable! So we don't have to go back to the hematologist anymore! Of course they will still keep an eye on things at his pediatrician's office...but oh, I am so glad we don't have to keep going to the clinic! Every visit turned into a 2 hour ordeal! 

Happy almost Friday, friends!

  1. I'm not sold on that hat quite yet. The PT we've been seeing for my son (he will be 12 weeks on Monday) suggested we try it but I've felt so bad putting a hat on my child's head in this heat! I think the best thing you can do is tummy time throughout the day and propping him up as much as possible to eliminate most (or all) weight distributed on the back of the head. Moving him from the R&P to his crib should also help to even out weight distribution, too. He's a darling little thing!
