Sucks about the PP bleeding coming back Surfacing! Surely a sign that mama needs some down time. Hope it disappears again soon.
Hi Welsh! Glad to hear you are settling in back home. Is it getting chilly there yet?
My relatives in Ottawa had a cold week (Did you know that Ottawa is the coldest capitol city (coldest avg temps) in the world? I thought it would be Moscow, but nope!). It's cute that LLoyd is a chatterbox- I love the things kids say at that age.
Things have been hectic around here too. I'm struggling with DS's sleep or lack of it. I realized he should be sleeping a LOT more than he has been and so have been trying desperately to get him to sleep more during the day. It's hard. Before I was just kind of letting him sleep whenever he fell asleep and he was up pretty much all day. But he's started to look tired and he's been fussy- I read he should be getting at least 14 hours a day. I was wondering why everyone is always trying to get their babes to sleep, I thought I was lucky because DS just went to sleep on his own. But he wasn't getting enough and I feel like an idiot mom
letting him be so tired all this time.
Now I've joined the ranks- bouncing, rocking, swinging, walking, singing- trying so hard to get this kid to sleep! At night he does ok but he needs an earlier bedtime- it's hard to really get him in bed before 11pm then he wants up for the day at 6am. There's usually 2 wakings in there too. I'm exhausted, he's exhausted... we need some SLEEP around here! Yawn.
In other news, I'm thinking of going to this moms + tots group they have here. I really am not friends with any other moms of babies and the social life has pretty much tanked, not that it was too exciting before. I'm not a person who needs to always hang out with lots of friends at all, but I guess it might be nice to know some other moms and for Konrad to have some little friends his age eventually. But I'm afraid the meetups will be lame and boring. It's not like DS can play with the other kids! And I am nervous being thrown into a group of people who already all know each other. And we still haven't decided what, if any, vax we will get for DS- I know the risk of illness is very low but the "playgroup" would be in a setting for contagion that he hasn't been exposed to yet. Meh. Maybe we'll wait a few months.
Yikes the weeks are flying by! DS is 9 weeks today!!!
