For that first day we lived in Nevada I had to stay in the room the whole time Everett napped because we didn’t have a bed for him. He won’t fall asleep anywhere besides an actual bed but I couldn’t leave him sleeping on a regular bed since he’d roll off so I got to just sit there and bum around the bedroom for an hour or so a couple times a day.
Then I breastfed him and he fell asleep and stayed asleep. Since I don’t have a crib for him I just sat holding him on the couch for his nap. It was so sweet. I don’t get to hold him while he sleeps very much at all anymore.
That night we drove over to the closest normal sized town (with stores!) two hours away. We desperately needed some stuff for our new Nevada life. Most especially a crib for Everett! We ended up spending $500 at Wal-Mart. We got some air mattresses, a fan (for noise while the kids sleep), Everett’s pack and play, and a bunch of other stuff like that. Not fun ways to spend money but necessary.
We were in Wal-Mart for freaking EVER. It was seriously such a long shopping trip and we were all soooo DONE with shopping by the time we got back into the car to make the two hour drive home. We got home pretty late and were feeling pretty awful about how tedious the entire shopping experience is when you’re stocking up for your new life and Wal-Mart is two hours away!!
Some of the thing we bought. Our food situation here looks drastically different than in Colorado. While we do have a counter (not pictured) stacked with produce we’re buying a lot of different types of food that don’t go bad as quick… basically I’m missing Sprouts and Trader Joes and organic options! haha
