why does mommy insist upon putting me in hats?
so nathaniel now weighs in at a whopping 9lbs 5oz, meaning he almost weighs as much as pickles. on top of his recent (well, steady) growth, he is pretty much on the verge of laughter. while he is smiling, he’s making what can only be interpreted as pre-laughter sounds. it’s pretty nice, actually. i feel that my talking like a jackass is finally giving me some payoff. well, that, or he really likes my diaper change songs.
today was my first baby free day since he was born. julia and her mother took him to visit julia’s grandmother for the afternoon. i had all of these awesome plans of things to do that i haven’t done in ages because there’s a baby in the house, but you know what i ended up doing? after i made the bed, made something to eat and walked the dog i fell asleep on the couch with the pupster for about two hours. at first when i woke up i was a little upset i didn’t get any of my plans accomplished, but then i started to think about it.
um, who's this guy holding me? he smells like daddy, but his hair is way too short ...
getting two hours of sleep is probably the best way to have spent my afternoon.
i mean, i was going to play some beatles rock band. those were my big plans. i haven’t played in a while because i either don’t want to wake up the baby, or am helping out with diaper changes/feedings/fetching stuff for julia. it was going to be an awesome afternoon of 5-starring the last few songs i need for the stupid achievement. oh how life has changed. 2 hours of sleep was definitely the way to go.
with the baseball playoffs starting so damned late and games going to midnight or later, with the new york rangers being on the west coast with games starting at 10:30pm, with pickles falling back into his old habbit of waking us to go out around 2am even though i took him out after 11 and he doesn’t even go, just walks happily outside in the cold, with nathaniel waking up at 5am every morning to be changed/fed, my sleep the last two weeks has been lacking. this was a nice pick me up. in fact, julia said she was going to be home around 5 … i think i’m going to go try to sneak in another nap!
