Good luck zengal! Just finished working- three weddings! Plus haircuts today.
Busy busy! I miss my H and am counting down the days till he gets back. My bro and his gf are coming over tonight and then tomorrow I have a hair class in Boston. I feel bad that my mom has had to watch him so much.
We are hoping to take a few days off for some family time when H gets back next week
I'm sorry I haven't posted here in a while. I kept getting logged off for some reason when trying to post. So, I gave up. It got frustration writing a post and then having it evaporate.
We seem to have fallen into a decent routine with the older two kiddos being in school now. Some days I feel like I've run a marathon by the time I get them to school and I get to work.
We are looking at putting our house in the market soon and moving to the town I work in. I hope that makes things easier on me. I currently have an hour commute each way.
Lo is doing well. He will now sleep from around 9-5 most nights. I just can't seem to stay asleep though. I guess I need someone to come and sleep train me. I still wake up at around 3 most nights, like when he would wake up to nurse. He is into everything! He loves to crawl around after his siblings, which is adorable. He can stand for about a minute or longer on his own. He's started cruising and can walk a bit while we hold his hands. I'm sure he will be walking soon. He also discovered the stairs recently. So, the gates are back up again.
This weekend is rough for me. It's quarter end so I need to get all my grades done and write report card comments. I am at math conference Sunday and Monday. I went in this morning to get all my sub plans done and all the printers were offline. It seems my principal shut his computer down and it controls the server for the printer. I had to convert all my files to PDFs and save them to flash a drive so I could print. It turns out all of our printers have USB ports and can print from a flash drive. I have parent teacher conferences to prep for too because those this coming week. Thank goodness for fall break because I need it.
My parents are in town this weekend too visiting with DD. I
I feel like a zombie. Lo has slept horribly the last 3 nights and has barley napped for the last few days. Couple that with a H who has been gone (I feel so bad for you ladies who's H's are gone for long stretches!!) and I feel like I'm gonna lose my shit.
Oh well she's sleeping finally so hopefully it's a decent one
So I'm finding myself very relaxed despite the craziness of this weekend. Day 1 of my conference is over and it was useful and full of good information. I also go some time in to work on my report card comments. Looking forward to day 2. Also nice that day 2 starts later than when I need to go to work.
Ladies I hope you all had a great weekend and get lots of sleep.
I'm a zombie over here too. liam is finally asleep (it's almost 11) my class was awesome but I had to pick up a coworker on the way to Boston and is a bit out of my way, turning a 1 hour drive to 1.5 hours. Liam wouldn't sleep at my parents and took a while to finally sleep at home.
The project H is working on should have been done today but we will be lucky if he is home by next weekend. So poor guy has not been home for more than a night since August. So happy we had that vacation with him.
Dropping by to say we had a good weekend despite 3am wake-ups both nights. Don't know if LO is still adapting to time change from our trip. She slept later both mornings as well, not getting up until after 8am. She takes a bottle and goes back to sleep. We're going to try a bigger night time bottle and see if that helps. She's so active, maybe she is hungry.
I took her out on my own for Target shopping trip today. She did well in the store, but she tried to nap both on the way there and back, neither time getting enough. Boo.
Gldnbearz Liam basically runs all day long, he wakes up one- 2 times per night consistently and drinks a full 6 oz bottle. Sounds like she is hungry too.
So it's 2 am and I am awake because I went to make Liam's 1 am bottle and right next to the nightlight when I went to turn it on was I swear to god a brown recluse spider. I freaked out. Covered it with an upside down candle and started googling what to do.
It didn't help me, I went the old fashioned way and called my parents and my dad was able to get rid of it. They live three min down the road.
I was sick to my stomach. Of course I'm still not going to go to sleep for the next forever, but we searched and didn't see anything else. Liam slept through my parents coming over and everything thank goodness.
Hah yeah gldnbearz I wish H was home for that one. Thank god my dad is so close.
Babies are so ridiculously unpredictable- I've attempted larger bottles and he stops at 6 oz exactly. Every time. I thought about it and I basically have my limit for liquids too and fill my cup a certain amount and even if I refill I may take a sip but that's it lol. This kid is exactly like me
