Hey everyone! We have been busy busy busy here. Henry is easy. It's so fun. Today he was a bit crabby - his second tooth popped through so I guess that was bothering him. He only slept for two 5 minute stretches between about 11 AM and 5 PM. That's not too bad when I write it, but it seemed like a lot longer than that!
I don't have a clock in the bedroom and that is making my nights easy, but mornings a bit difficult because I don't know if I should get up or not! So, I get up and walk around the house to discover it's 6:30 and I should have stayed in bed and tried to get him to go right back to sleep. Oh well. (Uh oh I just heard my dog drinking out of a toilet that I put one of those 2000 Flushes tablets in - it has bleach! I hope he doesn't die. Guess I should give them more water, he just emptied the dog water dish.)
Delia was 14 months when I got my period back, so I'm hoping for that with Henry too. We shall see!
Oh, Stephanie, let me try to explain a sleeping hood / panel extender option. It's what comes with Sutemi packs. It's a rectangle of fabric about 5" tall and the width of the panel. The ends are loops that you thread the shoulder straps through, so you don't have to sew anything to the carrier. You can kind of scrunch up the fabric if it's in the way, or use it all the time to extend the panel and give napping head support. Does that make sense? If you don't want to sew, you could try just safety pinning some fabric at the top of the panel to each shoulder strap too, so pin it to the carrier on 3 sides of the rectangle.
Megan, that picture of Clay at the park is hilarious - that hat!!!
I love BabyLegs and Huggalugs, but I haven't used them on Henry much yet. I am liking socks that go up to his knees, and haven't felt like I need to get his knees covered yet. He did give himself rug burn once but we've been better about keeping him on a sheet or having pants on him since then. I have used BabyLegs for years (I bought a batch of the original handmade ones before the owner had them manufactured!) and still use them on my daughter. I love them for keeping her ankles/calves warm.
We have nine kittens to deal with. Anyone want some?!
The barn cats were pregnant when we moved in. Surprise!! LOL
