We had a huge storm last Friday that knocked down a bunch of power lines, so we didn't have electricity. We had to stay in a hotel on Saturday night because we couldn't stand another night without air conditioning, and Crystal's medical equip. needed to be recharged after running on battery power for two days... Anyway we're up and running again now!
I had another three-day-marathon migraine which ended today, so I'm getting back into my groove with the housework and stuff.
We moved Zach's crib mattress onto the floor in our room, next to the bed. I'm making him sleep on his mattress, and if he wakes up in the middle of the night I'll lay with him down there. He did not like the idea at first- I told him "You have to sleep in your own bed now" and pointed to it and he whimpered "Bed? Nigh-night?" and pointed to my bed. In his new bed he'll nurse for 30 minutes, fall asleep, and as soon as I slip the nipple out of his mouth he wakes up screaming because he knows I'm going to leave. So, I haven't been getting much sleep lately, but I anticipate we'll have a few more bad nights like this before he gets the hang of it. I know this is something I have to do to save my sanity.
Zachary fights his naps a lot lately, too. He might skip a nap altogether, or he'll fall asleep anywhere from 3pm-5pm and sleep for 2 hours. He never has trouble going to bed at night, so it doesn't bother me when he does that. He actually does fine if he skips a nap- Julianna on the other hand falls to pieces and you can't take her anywhere. She HAS to sleep at her regular times or she goes nuts. So, everyone is different.
DH and I are planning on TTC next spring, as a 5th anniversary present to ourselves. I don't know if I can wait that long, though... :LOL I didn't want to have a summer delivery, or be big and pregnant during an Arizona summer, but we shall see. All this talk about tandem nursing and newborns and inducing labor has put babies on my brain! That, and I've been watching all the Discovery Health Channel's Baby Week shows...
Welcome to the new mama from Flagstaff! Next time I drive up north for the day we'll have to have a picnic together
Good luck on your upcoming delivery, Heather! I hope you have the birth you're wanting with David. Enjoy this wonderful time in your life...
