It's a darn good thing that Kent started his paternity leave this week. because things have gotten recrazy ( I made that up- it means crazy again- all in the same ways). And even better that he had this past weekend off- so we have ended up with almost two full weeks of no work for kent!! it almost makes having a baby worth it!!
so besides having Kent around- the craziness is peaking.
#1 the weather has been unseasonably warm. I think the AC is going to have to come on tonight. and with this warm weather we've got ants. like really gross big and beady black carpenter ants. In our house. I'm dying. I'd rather sleep with spiders in my bed than ants on the wall. Ants are my only real fear. ew ew ew. any ideas on how to get rid of them?!? I can't sleep at night because I sit and think about them.
#2 Ike says his ear hurts again!! and I wouldn't really believe it- but he keeps scratching it and leaning into it. Kent is at the drs office with him now hoping to get round two of antibiotics. Ten days of amoxicillin didn't cut it. I really hope it doesn't get as bad as it did last week. but if it does- at least Kent can hold him and rock him.
#2 Metta. naughty naughty metta.
This little monkey has been B-A-D the past two days. gassy? grumpy? tired? who knows!! another reason newborns are so dang hard- they don't speak with words. and considering we've never had a fickle baby and newborn cries make me very anxious- I'm just really glad that Kent is home :) She's already been way better last night and today so I'm hoping she's over it. I'm not sure how people with continually fussy babies cope. I'd lose my mind.
The boys were so intense with their play.
