Today was a good day. We got to leave a bit early, as it was the holiday weekend. Of course, no one really wanted to work and my friend Jake brought in a cheesecake so we all ended up in a dessert coma. I am traveling for a wedding this weekend, and after leaving early I headed over to Target to get some batteries and a card, and I ended up getting a dress too. I am not usually into dresses but I haven’t bought new clothes in awhile and I wanted something nice for the wedding. Plus they had nail polish in chartreuse! I have been wanting shimmery chartreuse nail polish, and couldn’t find it. Either it was too green or too yellow. It will go well with my electric blue toenails.
In other news, last night we did a little crying it out with Nova. Over the weekend, she was sick so I slept with her. Then on Wednesday, she was fussy again so I thought I’d sleep with her. It was one of the worst nights’ sleep I had in awhile. She nursed constantly, and kicked and fussed to boot. I can’t keep doing that, and I can sleep through a lot. Getting Nova down at bedtime and 2:00 am was a pain, but she slept well after that.
And I have to say that though having a baby is sometimes challenging, (and Nova is more challenging than Rowan was), I am in so much of a better place now. I am coping with the change to my life in a much better way. And it helps that my kids are cute.
