20/365

Both kids were up early today. Z at 4:40 am and V at 5:30 am. Both got woken up by poo. Pretty $!’??@. I know. But what can you do? Just hope the rest of the day goes well.

Seeing that we’re home all day, I let him cozy up on the couch and watch Curious George the movie. He has also been nursing the same smoothie I made him an hour ago. To hasten the day, I’m going to give him a bath before naptime. At least that’s my plan so far.

Well, the plan for Z has worked out. But I’m having problems with V’s sleep lately. I suspect teething because she wants to nurse all the time. Her naps are so short now and with the amount of effort I put into it, it’s only 30 min long. She wants to nurse to sleep all the time. I’m tempted to put he in the carseat.

I want to sleep train her but am unsure. Her nighttime sleep is also starting to get worse. She used to be able to sleep for 5-7 hrs straight before waking for the first feeding. Now it’s more like 4-5 feedings a night. It’s exhausting. I need to break this cycle before she gets older.

Here I made her sit in the Bumbo to pretend to play the piano. I even gave her time in the Exersaucer to tire her out. No luck.

I even put her in the Jolly Jumper and she was good in it. She never complained once except when I took her out. I was impressed at how upright her posture was – her neck was well supported.

Despite all the activities, she’s on her 4th 30 min nap and is sleeping in the wrap, with a nursing cover. I’m thinking this will be a halfer again. For sure it’s teething because she gets frustrated and even gags when she shoves her fist into her mouth. Poor girl.

Morning Routine

My son, Z, wakes up every morning and let’s us know he’s up by calling out loud. It may sound like crying at first, but it isn’t. “mommy, daddy, Violet, come!”.

As soon as I open the door and step into the room, I’m sometimes greeted by the wafting smell of his poo. “I pooed.” After a quick diaper change, with me engaging him in a conversation asking him to estimate how big he thinks the load is, we go back to “mommy daddy’s bed” and snuggle with either an iTouch or the iPad.

Today, something else happened. As I got close to his bed, he lifted my shirt to reveal my bulging belly. I have been telling him that I need to lose some weight. As much as he loves my belly, kissing and squishing his face into it, I REALLY needs to lose weight. As he lifted my shirt, he said,”mommy belly smaller? Shoot it into the basketball net?”. I laughed and replied, “No, mommy’s belly is too big to fit into the basket.”

I picked him up and kissed his face. Oh how I love him so. He is one smart 2 yr old!
