My problems were compounded by the fact that Ike's earache included three nights and days of pure agony. several times I was in tears (blame it on the hormones) because I felt so bad for him. he was in so much pain and there was ABSOLUTELY nothing that I could do. plus- my help left. and kent has worked more than 80 hours this week.
but ike is almost better- kent only has three more days left of this atrocious month- and gramps left behind a babysitter of sorts.
do you see what these rugrats are doing?! playing the Wii. It actually came from Metta and Clair and has been a lifesaver. THANK-YOU metta and clair!!
this is Zeb's face when gramps opened his bag and showed him the surprise. He was screaming with excitement. He's been asking for a wii for at least a year now. and the two boys LOVE it. They sit and play and giggle (and sometimes scream at each other) as long as I need them to :) It may be hard to wean them off once I come back to my senses.
Gramps also left behind some new amazing lightsabers that glow and make crazy lightsaber sounds. The boys sleep with them and we can hear them going off periodically at night.
Did I already mention that they got crazy spoiled while Gramps was here?!
and even though this little monkey holds most of the blame for the chaos of the last week- she really is the model newborn. I'm not sure why I get so blessed with perfect little babies- but I do. As far as newborns go anyway.
I think we started off on the wrong foot having her born so late at night. Kent was coming off his night shift and I didn't get any sleep that first night so it's taken us this long to catch back up. Getting the first week of feeding down- and Kent being up three nights with Ike- kind of did us in for awhile there.
but she is so good. She eats and sleeps. a lot. and never cries. She would for sure sleep six hours at night if I let her. Last night I slept from 9 pm to 830 am- and besides waking myself up to feed her three times- she slept perfectly.
