Mommy Needs Coffee!!!

My dear sweet husband loves me to bits and pieces but he HATES that I drink coffee.

I can't help it! I just really really love a good cup of coffee.
And some days....Mommy just needs coffee!

I haven't been drinking it as frequently lately as I had been simply because 1) I am saddly out of good creamer 2) I am running really low on filters and 3) I know how much my husband really doesn't like it. (Notice number three is in third place ;) ...I love you babe!)

Well today I REALLY wanted a good cup of coffee...but when I buy coffee I buy the whole beans.
I do this cause then I can stick them in the freezer (as I am the only one who drinks coffee) and then they stay fresher longer. Only problem with that is I typically want to sit and enjoy my cup of coffee when baby monkey is napping and the bean grinder is SUPER loud and ends up waking him up without fail...every time. ugh.

I tried my hardest to just have a cup of tea and though the tea tasted good (tea a friend brought home from Africa for me :) yum!) it just didn't cut it. Mommy Needs Coffee!

So in desperation of needing coffee and making sure that Monkey continued to nap... I did this!

I took the B&D coffee grinder into the mudroom, closed the door, and ground up the beans!!!
Now with baby still napping and coffee by my side I'm ready to work! Catch ya later blogging world! :)

Grumpy Monkey? Check for Teeth!

So on Thursday Monkey was beyond cranky! He didn't want anything to do with anyone or anything.
He was being very naughty and I just felt like all I did all day long was discipline him! ugh!

Finally at around 7pm I decided I couldn't handle being in doors with him any longer!
So off for a walk we went. We walked for around 2 hours and walked several miles.
(my guess would be close to 5 miles.) With a few stops here and there.
Monkey being the silly boy that he is started doing a new trick on our walk.....
He now puts his hands up in the air, shakes his head back and forth, and screams!
I call it his roller coaster. ( know exactly what I mean!) It's super funny and silly and made all sorts of random strangers bust up laughing as we walked.

We finally got home, gave him a bath, and got him in to bed around 10pm.
(Did I mention that we hadn't nursed in 24 hours by this point?)
Once he was in bed I rushed around the house to get myself ready, clean some of the house, and make a special date-night-at-home dinner for the hubs and I to enjoy.

Friday my mom and dad came over for work. (I work for my parent's construction business. I run their books.) And at one point in time for some reason Monkey was on my lap and doing something silly as per usual. THERE IT WAS!!! A New TOOTH!  This momma had an AH-HA! Moment  as I finally realized what his deal was the day before, why he had a HORRIBLE diaper rash, and just was all around not himself!
My baby has a new tooth. :) He is now 13 months old and has 7 teeth. Time is just going by all too quickly.

I love you baby Monkey!
