Happy week 35 – which I say with a bit of sarcasm as we’ve entered our 6th leap which means we are facing a few weeks of crankiness, less sleep and supposedly less eating but I have yet to see that one 🙂 Just before we started this leap, though, Abby slept through the night for the first time and two nights in a row! (Now I think this was to prepare us for what was to come.)
Miles is the proud new owner of 5 teeth, which is technically 6 but the 5th and 6th haven’t quite fully broken through yet. No signs from miss Abby yet but that’s ok because I kind of like her toothless grin. Not much progress on the crawling even though I often put them on the floor on their bellies with something just out of reach and tell them to “go get it”. Just like the dogs, they don’t listen. 🙂
An interesting (and admittedly slightly annoying) new thing I’ve seen is they seem like they are getting a bit testy. Once, when the milk hadn’t come down yet and Miles wasn’t happy about it, he let me know by bellowing out not a cry, but a VERY unhappy scream. I can kind of imagine the baby version of Veruca Salt yelling, “but I want it NOOOOOOW!!!!”. They can be playing happily, but if I walk by too closely, one cries. If I pick up one, sometimes the other cries. By the end of this, I am going to have Hulk arms. That’s cool, as long as I don’t turn green.
Anyway, I often feed them in bed in the morning and eat my own breakfast while they do. I can no longer do this, because they stop drinking wanting oatmeal. Even if I wait, they still want oatmeal, so I am now sharing my breakfast :). One day soon I’ll be eating in the bathroom.
On my end, I actually started reading a new book, which is something I haven’t done in quite awhile. I discovered that Jodi Picoult had written a new book and since I’ve read and loved just about every one she’s written, of course I had to read it (and so far it has been awesome as well). I was sick over the weekend (yuck) and still can’t exercise let alone run, but my back/butt at least feels much better (a more thorough update on that to come).
Not many pictures this week, sorry. But better some than none!
- Abby gets friendly with her inner hungry caterpillar
- Miles (now out of his sleep suit), sports a new sack
- Miles insists that I rest, and not do laundry
- And grows a strange obsession (Abby too) with non toy objects (I swear all babies really need are phone cords, hair, cardboard boxes and in our case, the edges of the alphabet mat).
