Relaxin' all cool...
Didn't I read someone's blog recently about the reclinability of these foamy chairs?
So far Micah doesn't appear to have caught our cold. And the rest of us are feeling a bit better today, but we're still laying pretty low. I don't plan on heading out for a couple of days, especially now that we're getting another dump of snow. We've had such crazy weather here the last couple of months - last night there was even lightning and hail before the snow started. We sure didn't have those kind of winter storms in the prairies...
I think Micah has officially entered a jealous stage. He often throws tantrums while I'm feeding Keziah - deciding at that inopportune time that he absolutely MUST have something. And yesterday when I would hold her, he would immediately insist that I hold him. I hate hearing him cry and whine, and yet I think he's got to learn somehow. I just feel bad - like he thinks I don't love him anymore! He has also discovered how loudly he can scream and how much of a reaction he can get from it - especially when Keziah is sleeping. Do I just ignore it and not give him any reaction, or do I punish him every time? He's definitely been pushing my buttons this week! He sure looks like the doting big brother in this picture. He likes to help me burp Keziah, but his back pats are more like wallops!
Keziah is 7 weeks old today. She is going to be two months before we know it! She is still sleeping well for me at night - up to 8 hours! The other night she only did 5 and I was disappointed but then had to remind myself how blessed I am to have such a good sleeper. I can definitely still remember those short nights with Micah.
I also have worked hard this past week to get her to fall asleep on her own and for the most part it seems to be working as long as I catch her at the right time. I've been getting some good tips from The Baby Whisperer.
That's all there is to report today. Now I'm off to relax a little while both kids are napping:)
