Well, I stayed up much too late (midnight? me?!?
Don't tell DH!) but, once I got to sleep, it was really quite wonderful.
You know, DH and I are pretty rotten sleepers ourselves in some ways. Neither of us can sleep very well with cuddling, which was a big part of our struggle with co-sleeping (DS is a very active sleeper, too.) God bless the inventor of the king-size bed.
So, last night, IT WAS LIKE I WAS SINGLE AGAIN. Nothing woke me up except my own bladder. How utterly delicious! I think I got the deepest sleep I've had for a few months, which isn't bad at this stage of pregnancy.
But, boy was I happy to hear my little boy coming up the steps with his papa at 7 o'clock this morning. I did miss them. I just enjoyed the quiet and the lack of responsibility for the night.
DH went to work today, of course. Science waits for no holiday, legal or religious. Big sigh. I think he's coming home early, though, so that's nice.
Last night, I ordered my new stove with delivery for Thursday. I hope the floor guy (who comes Wednesday) will finish in one day, but I guess the contractor could help us move the stove in from the library if necessary, right? (It's just an electric stove, so no gas hookup to worry about.) Now that so many of our DDC are having babies, I think I have a renewed fire under my butt to GET THAT KITCHEN FINISHED!
DS keeps asking to bake cookies, and it would be nice to do that with him before the baby arrives and before the summer gets too hot.
I bought one package of newborn disposable diapers yesterday so I could finish packing the hospital bag. (I switch to cloth post-meconium--and when I'm sure Mom is here before the baby!
) THEY ARE SO TINY! Awww! And the little pants! And the little socks! If DH hadn't been yelling at me to get away from the attic steps, darn it!, I'd have been up there rummaging for the newborn clothes, I think.
