My beautiful little baby… or big baby I should say. What a big fat cute nugget. He’s really killing me at night right now though, even if he’s still adorable while doing it. I look absolutely haggard. I can’t remember when I showered last, I can’t remember when I slept for more than 1.5 hours at a time last, I am not sure what day is it… I’m eating cake for lunch. I didn’t even cut the cake, I just took a plate of cake to my desk and ate it like a freaking bohemian!
He is 4 months. According to The Wonder Weeks, he is in a dark place. You can see his little head near Oct 3rd in the chart.
This lovely app. is telling me that he is going to be in a dark place for 2 more weeks before things get sunny again. This stupid App. I haven’t been following it closely until now and it’s right and that’s annoying because it doens’t give you tips on how to make it clear up faster or anything.
Also new this week: Bennett has pushed up during tummy time.
He struggled so much when he tried to do it before. So that happened and he can only do it for like 1 minute before falling back down, but he’s getting there. Then this morning he rolled over while swaddled onto his face in his crib. Luckily, I saw it all on my monitor and got to him within a minute. He didn’t seem to care though. His head was raised up when I got to him and he was just quiet and content I guess. So the swaddling needs to stop like today, and I am so mother effing tired that I am not sure if I will be able to handle it. I mean he’s not sleeping anyhow, he’s up every 1.5 hours as it is, so I guess it won’t be a huge difference. Tonight, I plan on camping out on his floor. My effing back is so so so so sore and hurting anyhow that what’s one more discomfort?
When he came downstairs this morning, he then spent the next 30 minutes laying on the floor rolling over on to his tummy and then rolling back onto his back. He’s pretty proud of his new found skills I think.
Life is so nuts right now. Harrison and Bennett are both battling sleep issues, so the whole house is crazy at night. I’m up to my eyeballs with work. I was hoping to take a lunchtime nap, but then things got out of hand and then I forgot to pump and ate cake at my desk for lunch, and now I have a million other things to do including making dinner for the family. And you know once I serve dinner, someone is going to have a problem with it. Clearly today is another “no shower” day. The person who invented dry shampoo must have been a mom on the run or someone who didn’t like to be clean.
Anyhow, we are in survival mode this week – or at least I am in survival mode this week. I just got up like 5 times to get something and every single time I forgot what I had gotten up for. Answer: an icy hot patch for my back.
Number of time-outs given: 3 to Harrison. Number of items taken away: 2. Everyone is in FINE form this week, omg. Chill everyone, just chill.
