Compare to Sister’s Blog: Month 7: Pulling Up and Solids
8/29 Day 188 W: I didn’t think I would get much sleep last night after nursing Itty Bitty around 11:30 while her brother snoozed, but I finally zonked out around 1:30 AM and the little ones slept until 10AM! Wowza. Now, this doesn’t mean that neither of them woke up. Itty Bitty woke up twice that I recall, and Mini Moose at least four times, but I did get a stretch of 3 hours – short wake – then two hours – short wake then three hours of deep sleep. That’s like totally awesome! It’s just a guesstimate but that’s what it seemed to me even though I avoid looking at the time more than once if I feel it is nearing sunrise. We only used two diapers for the night and had one miss just before waking which I don’t think I should count since he started peeing as I was taking off the diaper. So we were on task just didn’t quite make it.
I felt so good that I decided to take the little ones for some portraits. Mini Moose 6 month milestone and Itty Bitty’s three year. I totally missed Mini Moose’s 3 month professional pictures though I’m sure I have my own candid that will do just fine. It’s funny. I have a 1 month professional photo of Mini Moose but not Itty Bitty, and a three month professional photo of Itty Bitty but not Mini Moose. So I guess it is a wash! Their computer was down so we have to go back to see them. The young woman who usually does our photos remembered Itty Bitty and was pleased because I have shutterbug babies. She didn’t do my belly pics or the one month pics because I went to Sears which is near our house — so she was surprised by the new baby.
Anyway, we had a good afternoon of catches only a few misses (like 3) and then the evening we were good until I mistakingly changed a wet diaper and didn’t take Mini Moose to pee — he’d been holding back and peed again ten minutes later and soaked the fresh one with Daddy Man while I was putting leftovers away.
I’m quite bummed that one of my work appointments got cancelled as I really could have used that money. It’s going to be a lean winter and will take me until 2013 to catch up with my credit card since I didn’t get the summer appointment I needed and Mini Moose’s home birth was not covered by insurance. And my watch battery died yesterday and I feel naked without it!
