Monday News

C sunning (he was jaundiced) in normally unused crib, rollsrollsrolls, and viola!!! He falls for The Baby Trap!!

My baby is sleeping and I already got a 30 minute nap this morning so I cleaned the house, am eating lunch, and writing this. Lucky for you!!!

This is what our days are like Post Baby Jarvis (PBJ): I eat, C nurses, nurses, poops, nurses, plays, pees, nurses, sleeps. I eat, C nurses, nurses, poops, nurses, pees, plays, nurses, sleeps. I eat, C nurses, nurses, plays, poops, nurses, pees, nurses, sleeps.

In the evening we like to mix it up: we dim all the lights, C nurses, nurses, nurses, I get ready for bed, C poops, nurses, we sleep, sleep, sleep, he eats, we sleep, we wake.

4 nights in a row now he's slept 6-8 hours and only wakes up once or twice a night. I attribute it to his mad nursing skillz during the day. Each night I brace myself for no sleep but then I get to sleep awesome stretches like 4 hours and it is HEAVEN. My legs get so relaxed, my hips don't ache from a giant baby between them, and I don't get heartburn!


Plus I get a squishy baby to cuddle all day. How score-alicious is that???

So, news other than The Light of the Universe Who Happens to be My Child: Tomorrow is J's birthday and C's first doctor appointment. We are also going to attempt to go to a restaurant for an early family birthday dinner. Those of you who have actually eaten out with a newborn, please don't laugh, we'd like to at least attempt it. It'll make J's birthday a great adventure! Super fun!!

House News: We met the person who is buying our house at Saturday's inspection and I'm pretty sure he'll take good care of my first home. We move in 26 days and close in 32 days!!! EEEK! The fact that we have no house to move to isn't phasing me too much. We'll live with my mom till we find another place and are looking at a few houses on Thursday. I'll commence with panicking in about 2 weeks I'm sure. 

Well, this is a LONGGGGG post. I should fold laundry (babies make tons of laundry, especially when you are using cloth wipes and diapers), attack my To Do List, and go look at my baby. Probably I'll only look at the baby and the do the laundry. That To Do list is a bit daunting.

Sleep When Baby Sleeps

Must remember to do that (sleep when Baby C sleeps) but I get so distracted!! For reasons one though six:

  • I want to hold Baby C.
  • I want to catch up on my life.
  • I want to get on my laptop.
  • I want to read.
  • I want to clean.
  • I want to gobble Baby C up with kisses.

But I'm going to go take a nap now. AFTER: I wiggle Baby awake, feed him, get him sleepy, changed, and settled. Because when you have 2 twenty gallon jugs of milk sitting on your chest, you'll do a little extra to get the baby to eat:)

It's been a while peeps. Here's an update on my current life:

  • Helped my sister move in to her new college apartment today. It's so nice!!
  • Delightful, beautiful, sweet new niece will be 1 month tomorrow! New apartment sister will be 19 tomorrow!!
  • Someone wants to buy my house! The couple likes it a lot and put in the offer that my curtains will stay with the house. Poor red kitchen curtains:(
  • I need to relax more cause I'm almost out of time to do that! So I took a 1.5 hour nap today. Apparently moving someone in makes me tired.
  • It's easier to stay awake at night than to get comfortable and sleep. Funny:)
  •  My toosh hurts when I drive. But only on the left side. 
  • I LOVE summer food!!! Nothing like eating tons of fresh veggies and fruit from the CSA or farmer's market.
  • Only 2 more weeks until this baby is fully cooked! In fact, he can really come now and we'd all be perfectly happy:)

That's all for now:)
