Anna's out within minutes at 8pm, but then when midnight rolls around she's up every hour until 7am! Yaaaaargh. And this morning she was up at 5:30, in bed next to me, crying, then flailing around for a bit, and then crying again until we were all awake at 6:30... and now DH has her asleep in his arms, reading a book & drinking coffee.
I don't know what it is. I am having AF after a long time with no cycles because of the Mirena IUD (which I just got out), but she is also teething her last two baby teeth, the top canines. I know those are a huge pain. She's also very fussy during the day the past 2-3 days. Poor girl.
I'm working part-time for my dad here at his office, about 5 hours a day. DH is SAH with the kids. It's really interesting, this shift. DH can barely survive for those 5 hours... and of course it's so hard for him to get BOTH kids to nap. I should say that it does take a miracle worker to get Anna to nap without nursing, so I am really in awe when I come home and both of them have slept!
Megs -- Sorry, I haven't been around this thread too much lately -- are you in Med school?
Jes -- I just got stung by a wasp about a week ago and it was horrible! Poor baby...
