… energy has abounded in my house. This is [mostly] a good thing, although I felt like Cate was having some regression moments with her curiosity and getting into things she usually completely ignores.
… started with an electrician coming to install a ceiling fan in our bedroom. He rang the doorbell at 7:30 a.m., and while I was glad for him to be here to help us, I wish there was a universal rule about ringing the doorbell before 8 a.m. Thankfully, Cate slept through the ringing. And I’ll likely sleep better tonight with air flow on my face.
… Ben must have needed to block out some of the energy that was abounding around him. The picture above is how I found him sleeping. Speaking Ben and his sleeping … I wonder why he doesn’t nap well in his crib, but he’ll nap for hours in his swing. The weird part is that he sleeps well (7-9 hours) at night in his crib. Hey, at least he sleeps through the night, right?
… I was reminded how thankful I am to have two close friends here who have kids who have become Cate’s friends. It’s so worth the extra noise and commotion.
… I woke up with lots of unrelated things [ideas, projects, chores …] on my mind. I’ve accomplished some and written down others so they don’t escape my momma-mushy mind.
… I’m noticing Ben likes to hold toys [near his mouth so he can chew] and reach for toys even more. These early months are interesting because babies are always noticing something new and keeping their mommas on their toes with their ever-changing little lives.
So, now, enjoy another small snapshot of one of the little people who makes today what it is for me … every day.
