Lately, Scout thinks that 3 AM is a good time to play.
: I woke up to her pinching my nose and getting up on all fours while rocking back and forth and smiling at me. It's all very cute, but not at 3 AM. I'm pretty sure it's because I did not move to my own bed after I nursed her to back to sleep at midnight. I guess I was lazy and just felt like snuggling, but I should know better by now that my presence seems to make her feel like it's okay to stay up all night.
I thought since we were up playing from 3 to 4:30 that she might want to sleep in a little later. Nope.
krismarie - that's funny about your mommy crush. I recently had one too - she ended up inviting me over for lunch and we have hung out a couple times since then. She's really nice and I enjoy her company a lot. She's got a brick 'n' mortar cloth dipe business, works part time at a hip little espresso bar, and is pretty active in all the natural parenting group/ LLL stuff in the area. She's my "coolest" friend. (Well, aside from YOU LADIES!
queenofmycastle & maxismom - My DH has a short fuse w/ DD sometimes too. Not like mean or rude, but just impatient like you said. I know it sounds way old fashioned and backwards to say this, but I think that we women are just hard-wired to be the nurturers and men are (in general) pretty crappy at it. How's that for a broad sweeping generalization?
Well, he's installing our new diaper sprayer right now as I type this, so I guess I shouldn't be so hard on him.
I can hardly get anything at all when I pump and it's making me mad! I had a decent freezer stash and no need for it, so it all expired and then I got lazy about pumping and I just can't get near as much as I used to. I like to add breastmilk to Scout's baby oatmeal and at least have enough for one bottle a week for DH to give her when I'm at my weight watchers meeting. I am struggling just to get that!!
