you know, one of those days...

Today has been one of those days.  You know, the ones where you are so. incredibly. bored and have nothing to do?  Nothing at all, even though there are dishes to do, random clutter to pick up in the living room, dinner to cook, and a workout you still haven't done.  I'm feeling melancholy and downright petulant and I don't want to do anything that I need to do and can't think of what I want to do.  Sigh...

In case you were waiting with bated breath (ha), last night went shockingly well.  As in only going in his room two times well.  I'm sort of in shock, and I don't think it will all sink in until a few weeks pass of sleeping in eight hour stretches (which he's never. ever. ever. ever. done).  As soon as I put him to bed, I started feeling all weird and jittery and sort of nervous waiting to see what would happen.  I even kept notes on my iPhone of exact times that "things happened" just like I did when he was a newborn.  I was being sort of crazy and OCD but I couldn't help it.

I slept from about midnight to 5:15am when Steve woke up.  I was so disoriented from sleeping 5 hours straight for the first time in months, and then I was worried and had to creep into Riggy's room and check on him.  He was sleeping soundly, on his stomach with his little butt up in the air.  So cute!  I wish I would have gotten a picture.  Even with the dogs being crazy and Steve getting ready for work he didn't wake up.  I watched the Today show by myself sort of in awe of the whole situation.  I'm a little scared that since it went so well last night it's going to be a nightmare tonight or something.  I guess we'll have to wait and see!  One thing I didn't foresee was crazy engorgement, I'm talking rock hard and painful.  I definitely wasn't going to wake Riggs up just to relieve my own discomfort, so I pumped a little and whipped these long forgotten gems:

Awesome, eh?  Riggs fell today on his face and nearly bit through his bottom lip, poor guy.  Being mobile is so dangerous for babies and scary for mommies!  Here's the best picture I could get:

It didn't seem to phase him too much after I iced it for a few minutes. He tries so hard to pull himself up onto things and is getting so good about going from crawling, to sitting, to on his knees, back to crawling, it's crazy.  He looks so grown up now, wah. Time for a new baby I guess ;).  We'll have to see what Steve things about that haha.  Anyway, happy Friday everyone!  


  1. Woohoo! Go Riggs and you! He looks so big and I feel like he's looking like Steve more everyday!!

  2. Hey, congrats! Sleep is hard to come by over here too (when 3-hour stretches are an accomplishment, you know you've got trouble :), so I feel your pain. Why my children won't sleep, I'll never understand. Poor Elliot will be having some pre-sleep training here in a few weeks when we move and he'll actually have a room to cry in. Hopefully it will go okay, and we can get him to sleep longer stretches and still be able to nurse a couple times a night. Best of both worlds, right? Sorry for the novel--I do always enjoy your blog!

    My blog has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I'ԁ genuinely aρpreciatе it.
