Five on Friday

Who is ready for Mother's Day???  For us, it will be a weekend long celebration.  Saturday we are celebrating with the Flinns and Sunday we are going to my parents' house.  After a tough week, it will be nice to have a weekend that's dedicated to celebrating moms.  I have a fantastic mom and I try every day to be the best mom I can be to Noah.   As usual, I'm linking up with DarciAprilChristina and Natasha's blogs for their Five on Friday!


On Monday, Noah and I went to a MOMS Club "Open House" Picnic.  It was a beautiful day and we got a nice turnout.  I brought a friend from my building and her 7 month old son.  We went on the swings, but Noah seemed more interested in sitting on the blanket with a ball and my phone!


My new MacBook Pro arrived earlier this week.  I'm so excited to finally have enough storage to keep my pictures within fingers reach rather than having to move everything onto my external hard drive immediately.   It's taken longer than usual to get it all set up with everything I need, because I can really only work on it when Noah is sleeping, and this week we've been having trouble with that!


Noah and I had a rough Monday and Tuesday.  He only napped for an hour on Monday and then Chris had a work dinner, so it was just me and Noah.  On Tuesday, Noah fell asleep in the car for 10 minutes, but woke up when we got home.  He wouldn't go back to sleep after that and he was super cranky the rest of the day.  Thankfully, Wednesday was a lot better.  We played with his cars in the kitchen, went for a walk with some friends, and then Noah had a nice nap.


My mom just ordered Noah this T-shirt from Gap.  My whole family is Canadian, so I'm so excited to put him in this and represent his roots :)  I also think this will be perfect to wear on Canada Day (July 1st)!!!


Chris and I have some big news (no we aren't pregnant).  At the beginning of April, we made an offer on a house and it was accepted.  We will be closing on the house at the end of June and then moving our stuff in the beginning of July.  We are so excited to be moving into a real house and no longer live in an apartment.  I plan to post all about our move, shopping for new furniture, and the new house.
