no plans here. one friend is having a party starting at 8 and i think 2 years ago i took isaac and stayed til 10ish. but that doesn't sound like fun at all these days. putting both kids to bed at their normal time sounds like more fun
i sleep with isaac occasionally and he's alright. but ebin woke hourly last night from 12 til 4 (grrr). and then luckily he slept, but i set my alarm for 7:30. two nights ago ebin slept for FIVE hours and my boobs leaked all over the place. thankfully i was dead as a stone that whole time - it was the first 5 hour stretch i've slept in gawd knows how long. boy, i needed that
i don't know when i'll nightwean ebin. i think a large part of night nursing *is* habit. my ped is pretty much in the 9 months+ they don't "need" to feed all night. but that's easier said than done. ebin doesn't actually pause to nurse that much during the day because he's so distractable and busy now. so i think he feeds at night because it is quiet and he gets hungry. i'll probably wait til 16 or 18 months or so. i think it IS easier when you can tell them why the nursies are going night-night. i think it is like jet-lag though. your body gets used to eating at a certain time. and when you fly around the world you're starving for lunch at 3am but your body can adjust after a few days
my long-winded way of saying i look forward to maybe sleeping in a YEAR or so
a bonfire sounds like fun but i think it will be waaaaaaay too wet here. i hope your neck starts to feel better elsanne!
