The babies slept like shit last night. And I couldn't fall back asleep while they were hooting and hollering for no real reason.
I'm thinking it may be time for them to move to their own room. YAWN.
I gave in to co sleeping last night and N slept better and actually nursed less. He was acting like he had separation anxiety (too early for that!) and WOULD NOT sleep in his crib. He would do this loud yell/shriek if DH tried to soothe him, which was kind of funny/mostly annoying. As soon as he laid down next to me he would chill out. Little diva. I'm also hoping this is early 4 month sleep regression bc if it gets much worse I will die.
Ugh, I'm sorry that your night wasn't better.
Mine have literally not laid in their cribs in at least 2 months. They don't even know what they are. I think they would think I was joking if I put them in there.
We leave for the Dells on Wednesday and I cannot wait. I need to get away. We are taking the daughter of a friend to help with the older girls so each will have a buddy to do water slides with and I'm so excited.
We slept like crap last night (and this whole weekend, really) too! At least now I know I'm in good company with you ladies.
Naturally DD picked up some germs right away once she started going to daycare, so she is super congested and snores like a rhinoceros right now. But I can't put her in her own room when I'm constantly worried that she's going to suffocate on her own phlegm, so I just tossed and turned listening to her snuffle. Poor kid. Oh! And because apparently every daycare stereotype is true, DD came home with a note last Monday alerting us that another kid in the facility has HFM and we should be on the lookout for symptoms just in case. It's a big center and the toddler and preschool rooms are as far from the infant rooms as possible so at least that's good... but I was so irritated that they might have exposed my three month old to something like that! So far she seems to be okay, but sheesh.
My night was just as usual, luckily Leo did not wake up at all. Even when Alex started shrieking when I took the boob away. I had a big leak mishap and needed to get up for a towel. Baby was not pleased.
Other mishaps yesterday included both boys having poopsplosions while we were out. I had a pair of warm fleece pjs for Leo to change into but only a pair of too tight pants for Alex. So he wore a tshirt and socks of Leo's. I mean I was happy I had clothes in the diaper bag but really need to start paying better attention to it. I pack stuff and then at some pt it's get taken out for one reason or another and then it's gone. I also didn't have wipes in the bag but the family we were visiting had some. MOTY.
We're packing up for our flight home this afternoon. The baby has been a complete champ, but we ran out of diapers and wipes in the diaper bag yesterday. I need to learn to pack the bag better. Hoping we don't have a witching hour today, since it perfectly coincides with our flight. 😳
crimpgirl and requiressnacks, thank you! It's just weighing on me that I'll only get a couple of hours with her this evening and she'll most likely be fussy/overly tired during that time. Oh well, this is going to be life as we know it from now on!
It was sooo cute this morning, DH was dressing her and he never does that, so he was fumbling with the onesie for a while. She was giving him all sorts of happy yells and shrieks the entire time. He said she 'talked him through it.' OMG my heart hurts...

Jane slept great last night, but while I was trying to make the damn humidifier work I knocked over a full cup of water on my night stand. Luckily none got on her and she slept all the way through it and I didn't really have any damage to electronics or anything and finally got the humidifier to work again. Ugh! Now I'm exhausted. Jane wakes up with huge smiles and I just hate to take her to daycare thinking they get all those day time smiles and I don't. Dumb daycare. This weekend I just wanted to hold her all weekend and not do anything else. DH wanted to go for a drive and I was like "NO!". He was a little shocked, but I just told him to go by himself. I missed my girl. He didn't end up going.
R is in a crib in the nursery. I had him in the baby box until he started getting big enough to hit the sides, this boy is ACTIVE. I had already had him napping in it during the day. He grunts a lot when he sleeps, kicks his legs up, flails his arms and randomly cries for 3 seconds while fast asleep. Our bedroom isn't huge (older style house) so he was right beside me and I was sleeping terribly. The first night was hard and I watched the video monitor closely, but so much easier after the first night
Oh right!! I remember now....the baby box! I'm glad it's working out. I'm regretting not transitioning sooner. Or at least putting a plan together.
Cora was a champ all weekend in Milwaukee. We ended up in a room with only a king bed, instead of 2 queens like I was hoping. So we pushed the couch next to my side of the bed and Cora slept there, as amazingly as usual.
I switched her to her convertible seat the week before last, hoping she'd hate it a little less. She does not. She screamed every second she was in it -- which was an hour and a half to and from Milwaukee (I had to drop my friend off in IL), plus all the driving we did while there. As soon as she was out, she was great. Without the infant seat though, I had her in my lap every time we went out to eat. I always had to do that anyway, but felt like I should take the infant seat in just in case she'd actually sit in it while I ate (HA!). I was amazed at how much easier this was. However, baby in your lap gets a lot more attention than baby in a car seat. I kept seeing people staring out of the corner of my eye and feeling self conscious until I realized they were staring at the baby, not me. There was a middle aged guy at PF Changs who was absolutely enthralled by Cora, and spent his entire dinner smiling at her. It was a little awkward. His kids were all older and dude needs grandkids like ASAP!
We stopped by Once Upon A Child and I went way overboard on summer outfits. They're all so stinking cute -- it's hard not to. I'm 99% sure that she has way more than she can wear before she'll outgrow it all.
requiressnacks, until H's grandparents moved up here in 2012, we used to drive to Arkansas every year to visit them. With kids, the drive ended up being closer to 15 hours, but it was never awful. We also drove to VA when I was getting custody of my niece.
D nursed earlier than usual before I went to bed, so he got up at 2 and again at 6. I skipped story time today since the usual lady wouldn't be there and not all the others do a good job of keeping the kids from running nuts. I did take them for a walk instead, but it was a bit chillier than I thought. I had to run DS2's hands under warm water when we got back. Oops! Baby D took a 3 hour nap since he effed up his schedule last night, so that was nice. I need to find some more (cheap) places to take DS2 during the mornings while DS1 is at school.

I'm working on tomorrow's report today and trying to drag it out as long as possible. At some pt I need to talk to my Dir about what other work I can do after the first 2 wks of the month are over. I can always improve on current stuff but I need new stuff to keep motivated.
And I'm also patiently waiting for lunch. Don't want to eat too early and then be hungry later. I brought beef stew that I cooked overnight.
