Yawn. Erk. I "overdid" it again yesterday, apparently. I can't think how - all I did was a bit of housework and cooking - but combined with a not-so-great night on the part of the baby (burps, I think), I'm absolutely zonked again today. Nearly fainted in the shower, and crawled straight back to bed afterwards.
Luckily Mum's taking DD to dancing class again this afternoon. DH and I are going to venture out to spend a birthday voucher I got - a $50 one for a fancy clothing store. Unfortunately I'm not sure you can buy much at said store for $50 and we don't have much extra money to spend, but the voucher expires at the end of June (ie. tomorrow), so at the worst I can "buy" a bracelet or something and sell it online, maybe. Kind of a pity - I could really use some new clothes - but then, my size hasn't settled down yet either. At least, I hope it hasn't. :p
Am I the only one who's terrified of the prospect of going out alone with two kids? I'm fine with dragging DD around on errands - well, I should be by now, she's three! - but throw Miles into the mix and it's a scary, scary prospect. The carseat, figuring out how to carry him... I haven't actually used the mei tai, although DH has a bunch of times!... our pram doesn't fit in the boot of our car, and Miles has never been in it anyway... I don't know, it just intimidates me. I guess I'll have to get over it eventually; I can't make DH come along on all my grocery trips for the next three years.
Boo to ants, roaches and other creepy-crawlies! (Including staph infections, if they count as "creepy-crawlies"....)
So, anyone have a differential diagnosis for Miles' problem last night? He kept waking up and growling. Very odd. Growly, talky noises; they didn't sound upset at first, but then after a while he'd try to latch on, then give up, flail around the milks for a while and start to cry. I couldn't get him to take a decent feed all night, except for once when he lay across my chest (which was a pain, because he didn't get the angle right and I had to lie there pressing my breast down with one finger so his nose wasn't squashed against it, so he could breathe... you know how it is!) I thought he might have burps, but we kept burping him and didn't get many out, and he's usually pretty easy to burp. Anyway it was odd, and annoying. Any ideas? He wasn't swaddled, but then he was this morning and was still doing it to some extent. He wasn't hot or cold... He doesn't usually "talk" much, so the noises were unusual (and kinda cute, just not at 2AM!)
