Growth Spurts SUCK
I think we've hit that 6 week growth spurt... he turned six weeks yesterday and of course only wanted to nurse or sleep for 10 minute stretches all day. Aggravating. He slept remarkably well last night in contrast... 2.5-3 hour stretches (yes, still choppy sleep, but after the hell of yesterday I was SO glad to just be able to get sleep at all.)
Not too much has been going on as of late... we have just basically been hangin out; I'm trying to get shit done around the house so it doesn't look a damn tornado hit it all the time. I have my 10 year reunion this weekend, Aaron's got a bachelor party to attend on Friday night, rumor has it my car will be getting some much needed attention on Sunday... I think I may try out a church with a friend on Sunday morning.
I finished my first book in ... gosh, i don't know how long. I haven't read for fun in so long... school tends to tap me out on the pleasure reading. I finished yesterday "Twilight's Children" by Torey L. Hayden. I love her writing, there's another book of hers I have yet to read (I've read the rest), so I'll hopefully borrow that one from my mom this weekend.
I told you not much was going on!
Oh... to answer some stuff in the guestbook...
the rolled up things in the crib are diapers... my aunt made us a diaper cake a while back ... father's day I think, anyway; it came apart when we got home. So Aaron neatly lined them up in the crib; they are size 2's so, we aren't up to that size yet, they are patiently waiting their turn in the diaper rotation. :-)
Mojodiva asked about Nolan's swing. He seems to like it... he's not a super smiley kid yet... but he rarely objects to being put in it. He does *not* like his bouncy seat... well, he will tolerate it occasionally, but 9 times out of 10 he'll yell his head off when I put him in it. I'm really glad we went with the model that turns into a toddler rocker, so I don't feel as though it was a waste.
Regarding the jaundice and natural light; our condo has sky lights and lots of windows... in fact I don't even turn any overhead lighting on until dusk usually. So he's in natural light quite a lot of the time... it just isn't helping all that much.
And regarding dipe changes in the middle of the night... I too let the wet ones slide if it's 4am. However this kid is a poop machine, he doesn't always poop a lot, but I would say 80% of the diapers I change are poopy. Hell, make that 90% because a wet one only is rare occasion.
Thanks for all the feedback on the slideshows. I was thinking of starting up my own page/business to make slideshows for weddings, family reunions etc... but so do not know how to get started. I can make a page, but don't really know how to get the word out. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated.
Man I love these pants.
Nolan wonders what the hell those rolled up things are too.
