heath-so glad you were able to come home.
megan-the dance recital sounds so fun! Glad Mia had such a good time, too.
re: dressing himself: G CAN do it, I think, but doesn't really. He can take most things off pretty easily, but he still wants us to do it for him most of the time...even to go potty. He can sorta put things on, but I haven't really pushed it too much, because it would take more time, and often I'm trying to get him dressed super fast so I can get in the shower before A wakes up
It's something I know we need to encourage more of though.
Yeah, the girl clothes are so tempting to me. Good thing we're on a super tight budget, or I'd go a little nuts. However, I just checked out her stash of 6-9 month clothes and she's lacking quite a few things, mostly because it's still so dang cold and snowy here. She's got several of G's things to wear that don't yell out BOY but they aren't so cute. So, we'll probably have to do a little shopping so she doesn't freeze!
Major growth spurt here for Miss A, too. Her 6-month WBV is Wednesday, so we'll get all her stats then. She's pretty much out of many of her 3-6 month sized stuff, especially with the cloth diaper crotch!
Don't think I've mentioned here, but we got a totally free 3-in-1 crib and mattress from our local freecycle group (G never had a crib..went from co-sleeper to our bed to twin mattress on floor.) We set the crib up a little over a week ago in our office/baby changing room and have been putting her in it for her 1st big sleep stretch at night. She was sleeping shorter stretches in the co-sleeper and it was seeming too small for her (it's a mini), so we thought we'd see if she might sleep longer away from our noise and in a bigger space to stretch out (we try to be quiet, but she's so aware of things right now, I felt we were bothering her each night when we got in bed). So, for the first week of operation crib, she would sleep 3-4 hours in it (from 8-8:30 to 11:30 or 12). This was okay, but due to the growth spurt, once she was in our bed, it was very short sleep stretches and I was getting pretty tired. Last night, though, she slept in her crib from 8:15 until 3:40! That was exciting. We'll see if the growth spurt has stopped or she's just more comfortable in her bed. We're okay with her being in our bed as G was, we just thought this was a risk-free way of trying it out. We can always do same ol, same ol if we need to! I have to admit, having our bedroom to ourselves again, if only for a couple hours, is pretty cool. I can read in bed! We can watch Letterman! And other things
Okay, off the eat breakfast. Today's dh's day off, so it's like our Saturday/Sunday.
