A lazy sort of day
We’re having a lazy sort of day. It really feels like fall, it’s dark and dreary outside and its been raining on and off since this morning. We changed into fresh jammies but I decided we’d have a stay-in-our-jammies day.
I don’t know if the weather is getting to Andrew or if it’s just a fluke, but he’s been napping a lot today. I just hope this doesn’t mean he’ll be up through the night. We’re now at 4 nights in a row of sleeping through the night and I don’t want to break that cycle!! He did get up just after midnight BUT I had only just fallen asleep literally a few minutes earlier than that, so getting him back to bed just after 12:30, I was able to fall asleep almost as soon as my head hit the pillow and didn’t wake up till after 7. After feeding him, James watched him so I could go back to sleep till 8:30. What a difference it makes to be getting better sleep. I still get exhausted in the early evening but sometimes a coffee gives me the extra boost I need to finish up the day!
Something Andrew did today that felt like a sort of ‘milestone’ moment was playing ball with me. He would push the ball back to my hands after I pushed it toward him. He’s done it before but it seemed more like a fluke when it happened before – today he seemed to more consciously be pushing the ball, knowing it was a game we were playing.
So I’ve started reading The Time Traveler’s Wife. I want to see the movie so I thought I’d better read the book first. If I see the movie first, it’s unlikely I’d ever get around to reading the book. I’m only about 30 pages in but so far so good. Maybe I’ll go read a few pages now before the babe is up again and demanding my full attention =)
