Ok, so, we have worked the night wakings down to about 4 per night, 3 of them are quickies (back to sleep in about 5-10 minutes) and one is about 45 min-1 hour. For us, this is a big deal. Bruce and I have worked out a system so that one of us is "on-duty" for half the night and then we trade. All of this has resulted in us getting some SLEEP!!! Yay. The past two days have been magical. I feel human again. Did laundry, mopped the floors, and am just plain happier. Let's hope that the trend continues! :)
Last Friday started off so badly, but thanks to a caring friend, we got out of the house, breathed some fresh air, played at the park and all was well with the world. Yessssss.
Being a mom is such an adventure. I think that it's really amazing to watch your child grow and witness their development, knowing that just months ago they were a resident in your tummy, unable to do a single thing for themselves. Every day Taylor's little personality grows, and every day, she amazes me with some new skill. This morning, she started clapping, just out of nowhere. We were cuddling in my bed after she woke up and she just starts clapping. and her walking skills get better every day...which totally frightens me!!! Oh, and as she starts to eat more and more solids, her little taste buds have their preferences...cheese puffs (the baby kind of course) to be exact. Lol, my little Baboo has a garbage gut!
Off to enjoy the rain...
