While Claire’s nighttime sleep has somewhat returned to normal, her naps are still a mess. All week I had been dealing with 15-30 minute naps…and she only takes two per day! I try to make up for her lack of sleep with early bedtimes, but keeping a cranky, teething (no top teeth yet), sleep-deprived baby entertained all day every day has been taking a toll on my patience.
My wonderful husband knew how stressed I was by the time Friday rolled around, so he contacted a girlfriend of mine and asked her if she would take me out Saturday so I could get a break from the baby and enjoy some adult-only company while he stays home with Claire. (Have I mentioned lately how much I love this man?) Needless to say, I had a wonderful time yesterday and I am feeling refreshed and recharged.
Right now I am writing this post on my phone while J drives us to my parents’ for a Memorial Day BBQ. As you can see from the below picture, we dressed Claire in an adorable outfit for the occasion. I must admit that baby clothes are much cuter and fun with the warm weather – we’ve been putting all the great hand-me-downs we’ve received to good use.
Posting will continue to be light this weekend, especially since I have been working hard at redesigning the site in order to make room for ads.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
