The Busy Giffs: Schedules, Shopping, & being Un-American.

July 2, 2011

Schedules, Shopping, & being Un-American.

So Emmalee is in her bed and I need to celebrate for a minute. Other than Wednesday night, she has been in her bed and asleep by 9:30 every night this week! Granted she's not even 3 weeks old but her schedule has been cementing.
She's in bed each night between 8:30- 9:30, sleeps until 1 or 2 am, eats for a bit then is back asleep until 5:30-6:30. 
She eats again and hangs out awake with me until about 9.
Another meal and sleeps until around noon time.
More eating and some more awake time followed by a meal and another nap from 3 until about 7.
Eat, awake time, eat, asleep again between 8:30-9:30.
I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts because who knows when it comes to little ones!

Plus I am having a REALLY great day!
Emma had me up around 6 am and after she ate and went back to bed, I got up and headed out to Savers for their 50% off sale.
Now I LOVE Savers and I'm not even ashamed to admit it. I bought a ton of my maternity pants there because I really only needed them for a short span of time and I couldnt justify paying $40+ per pair for something I only needed for 3 or 4 months. Also, baby clothes are great to buy there because almost everyone knows that most babies dont get to wear all thier clothes and many of them end up at Savers.  It makes sense because it makes clothes super cheap and a lot of them are in great condition.
I had bought a couple of gender neutral items before we had Emmalee, obviously not spending alot because we didnt know what we were having. But now that we know... so much more fun!!
Mom repeatedly gives us bags of clothes from Savers (which I love) and in addition to all of her presents, she has a TON of clothes for newborn and 0-3 months, which if she grows "according to statistics" that will get her until the middle of September.  Well, me, trying to be smart, opted to buy all long sleeve onsies, pants, and fleece pajamas in 3-6 and 6-9 sizes, September to December and December to March! She has so many clothes now, I really dont have to worry or be concerned at all about buying ANYTHING for her anytime soon. So this is what I bought...

There are 52 items there, you know, just so you dont have to count. And the best part... I spent $36!! There are items from Jumping Beans, Carters, and Osh Kosh, and the most expensive item was $1.25 since everything was 1/2 off the already super low Savers prices!

Little victory. Oh, and I came home to Space Jam on tv. What a day!! :)

However, I'm also being a bad American this weekend.  We have NO plans whatsoever and I may have to officially turn in my Manomet card because... wait for it... I am NOT participating in any of the festivities on Whitehorse Beach this year. I know, pull up your jaw and take a breath.

Emma is still too little for fireworks, I would have nothing to leave with a sitter to feed her with and the thought of sitting in traffic to get to my parents house makes me wanna vomit. I guess things really do change when you become a parent because I havent missed WHB festivities since my mom let me go down with my friends/on my own. Hell, my first official "we're boyfriend and girlfriend" date with Dave was to a party on the 3rd.  So obviously the day has a special place in my heart. However, this year, we'll be staying home.  There is a street fair in downtown NB tomorrow so we will probably venture that way with little missy.  Otherwise, we'll be tucked in the house, avoiding the loud boom of fireworks.
