I'm much too tired to formulate a coherent blog post on any one particular topic so this will be bullet point style:
-After sleeping like shit for the past week and a half, Hunter finally got a 5 hour stretch of sleep last night. I'm hoping whatever the hell was waking him up every 2 hours is gone.
-Because of the lack of sleep I'm taking a vacation day from work tomorrow, dropping the kid off at daycare and coming home to SLEEP and rest and relax. Three things I haven't had much of the past 3 months.
-Since he seemed to be hungry a lot more at night and in an effort to get him to sleep longer we gave him a little bit of rice cereal in his bedtime bottle for two nights, it didn't work (he was still waking up every 2 hours), we suspect it made him gassy. Our daycare lady suggested Oatmeal instead. Last night (when he finally slept well again he had just gotten breast milk). I think I will hold off on anything else until he hits the 4 month mark.
-Kristian had to work late last night so I left work a little early to pick Hunter up from daycare (Kristian usually picks him up) and when I walked in I could hear him fussing in his bouncy chair. I walked over and got down in front of him and he stopped fussing and gave me the biggest open mouth smile. Those are the moments that melt me into a puddle of mommy mush.
-This morning when I dropped him off at daycare I laid him in his crib and he smiled at me, grabbed my finger and held on when I tried to leave. Those are the moments that break my mommy heart.
-In non-Hunter news we had our living room and bedroom painted last week (I plan to write a separate post on this when I get my brain capacity back). I LOVE the bedroom color, not so much a fan of the living room color but almost anything is better than boring white walls.
-I've started reading the much hyped about book Fifty Shades of Grey and the sex scenes are as racy as people say. I'm about a third of the way through the book and so far it's okay, I'm hoping it gets better. It doesn't help that I'm only able to read it in short increments, typically while I'm pumping.
-I got a raise yesterday! I haven't had one in a couple years but in this economy I know how lucky I am just to have a nice paying job let alone a raise and I do typically get 1-3 bonuses a year so not getting a raise didn't bother me too much but it's definitely a nice treat. With the way Hunter is outgrowing his clothes I need all the extra money I can get.
-Pinterest has become my ultimate time suck and not a day goes by when at some point I don't say to Kristian "so I saw this thing/idea/recipe on Pinterest today...."
