    I was going to respond to my own question when I heard the call of my baby in the other room. Anyway not much new here. Getting back into the groove at work and staying busy there. So busy that I'm forgetting to pump. But I have tons of milk so I am not worried.

    We finally took Henry out to eat at a restaurant and he did really well. DH was nervous. I had taken Henry a couple times before with my Dad, but never with DH.

    My bestie called at 7am. When you get a call from your friend at 7am, it can only mean one thing....she is pregnant! With her second. So excited for them.

    Gosh I sure hope Henry sleeps tonight. I'm worn out from sleep deprivation. This is the longest sleep regression ever. I'm putting this in words in hopes that it changes something. Seems to always work like that

It's been a little over a month of getting up 3 or more times in a night. I think maybe 3x in that month he has slept a stretch from 8pm-3pm. But lately its every 2 hours. I'm putting this in words in hopes that it changes something. Seems to always work like that

    Elizabeth, I know what you mean.. can I just have 1 night of sleep, pleaseeeeeee?????? Lol.. pretty tired today. I am so jealous of my husband.. he's such a deep sleeper. He didn't even wake up this morning when Lucas woke up at 3:30 to eat.. and he SCREAMED lol Makes me mad sometimes.. I guess bc I am so cranky that it makes me mad that he can sleep through Lucas screaming and crying and I can't even when we take turns on night feeds. I just lay there awake trying to sleep lol I even laid him in bed with me to see if he would stop moving after he ate and he didn't. So finally at like 4:30 I put him back in his crib and at 5:10 he was moving and grunting.. so I cuddled him in bed and he finally went to sleep without moving.. well, I get up at 5:45 so I got 35 mins after that. I really just want to go to bed early tonight and catch up on some much needed sleep. Sigh.. sorry for the vent haha.

    Can you ladies believe our LOs are soon to be or are 4 months old?!?!

    I am also exhausted. Getting back to work routine is so hard after the summer off. Rylee is up 1 time to eat at night but then she wakes here and there when she rolls to her belly and wants off. I really wish it would change lol. DD was an amazing infant sleeper and horrible toddler. So far Rylee is not great infant so I am hoping for amazing toddler haha

    I am trying to keep up with my working out. So far it is hit or miss lol. I hurt my foot last week so that sidelined me but went today and yesterday. I am a bit concerned about some health stuff but I have a physical and see my gyn in early oct so I am just putting it off. Just not bouncing back to normal in so e ways after Rylee but it may be normal.

    Ok off to pass out!!!

    Nidia, I'm the same way. DH will tell me he will get up with the baby and usually I just do an eyeroll. He doesn't even hear her. The few times I've kind of shaken him awake to get her, he will get up but.. I just lay there until he comes back to bed. Pointless to even let him get up with her.
    Julie has ringworm. Some girl at the daycare had it first and then Julie caught it. It's highly contagious but not dangerous, but I'm still a little irritated. It's going away now, luckily I had some Rx cream already from a yeast infection Julie had as a newborn.
    DH has decided that he needs to rebuild the engine in my car. I'm so not excited about that. He rebuilt the engine in his car like two years ago and then a year later it broke down again. I know something needs to be done with it - it ticks, but an entire overhaul? He drives it to work because it's better on gas than the truck. But there's issues with the truck too. So then he decided we'd trade it in. My car is a 2004 Mustang. Not baby friendly at all, plus it's getting old. But ..still, it's *my* car and I don't want to trade it in. But we're going to go look at cars and see what the diff in price would be for just getting one (a used one) or trading the Mustang in and getting one. He also got a speeding ticket this morning. Yay.

    On a plus note - my little girl owns my heart. Her smile can just brighten my day.

    Hey ladies!

    Elizabeth, I had to laugh about your bestie calling you at 7am. I think I called my bestie at 6am the day I found out I was pregnant! lol. Thankfully she's an early riser.

    As for sleep, Emma still wakes up multiple times at night, but since we co-sleep, it usually doesn't disrupt my sleep too much. Some days, it's hard to lay her down when I have to leave for work without her waking though. I do wish she still preferred her early bedtime though. Now, if I try to put her to bed around 7, she'll wake up after a nap and be up for 1-2 hours. I like to go to bed early, so that makes me very tired.

    In other news, my DS has been in kindergarted for a few weeks now and his teacher's already called me in for a conference. It seems, he's very academically advanced, but they have a hard time getting him to stay in his seat, stay focused, and doing his work. Considering that, plus some other home issues, we agreed to talk to his pediatrician. He gave us a questionnare to fill out and another one for his teacher and we have to bring them back.

    Aimee, how did you hurt your foot? I do hear that difficult babies become easy toddlers sometimes, but my friend's difficult baby turned into a "spirited" toddler. Hope your health stuff checks out ok.

    Jessica, hello and welcome back! Did you get ahold of a computer? Sorry about the ringworm, that sucks. Ringworm always sounds grosser than it really is, right? A new engine is crazy talk, I'd look for a new car. The past 2 cars I owned had engine problems and it was cheaper to just get a new "used" car. And sucks about the speeding ticket. Me and DH have been getting tickets left and right. I got a ticket for passing a school bus on a huge 4 laned-2 way street when I was driving the opposite direction. I had no idea that was even illegal. I didn't even see it. They have cameras on buses now and it caught me and you can see that I'm literally hundreds of feet away from this bus. It's silly. Shouldn't I be paying attention to the car in front of me? There was a car in front of me, hope it got the same ticket.

    Nidia, 4 months! It's crazy. Our lil guys are only days apart. Henry had his 4 month appointment today, when is Lucas's?

    Joan, I don't know how you do it. I also co-sleep when it becomes every hour, but honestly I can't sleep thru it. I need a blanket all the way up to my neck when I sleep and when he is in my bed, I get rid of the blanket and I'm so uncomfortable. Plus I have to hold my boob up for him to eat, my boob is too floppy or something and he can't latch unless I'm holding it. haha. Sorry about your DS. I'm sure lots of parents hear this. Did they recommend anything else besides seeing a pediatrician?

    AFM- that night that I posted about sleep was the worst night of sleep EVER. Well since he was a newborn. He got up at 3am and thought it was playtime. So as of last night we are putting him in his crib. I was terrified and literally fell asleep looking at the monitor. But I think we both slept better. He slept until 3am and I didn't hear all his little grunting. We were thinking maybe our squeaky bed was waking him up when we would change positions while sleeping. So last night he slept in his crib til 3 and then I brought him to our bed.

    So I bought a woven wrap! I love it, except it makes Henry spit up a lot...so I feel like I have to wait to get past the spitty stage to use it.

    We are meeting up with some friends from Los Angeles this weekend (their family is in Texas), another preggo! We are going to her shower and she is a photographer, so she wants to take some family photos of us!
