My mom went home last night; she felt like she wasn't helping so I didn't need her (moral support goes a LONG way, though). So anyway, today is my first day alone with the boys.
It's going fairly well. Squirt slept from 4:15-7:15 (wow), I think slightly because at 4, he acted hungry then just slept so I brought him into bed. Anyway, so Moose woke up around the same time. Squirt was SO patient while I got Moose up and changed him, then changed Squirt, then got Moose's breakfast ready, and THEN fed him. Moose has done well, too. He is still loving in Squirt but I can tell he's slightly jealous (or just unsure about all of this) - he's thrown a few fits and tried to get me to play Guitar Hero (yes) while I was feeding Squirt. It's so hard to tell him no, I can't, but I really can't do that AND feed the baby (plus, I don't necessarily like playing GH all the time). He's had a few timeouts and a few scream/crying matches.
Big A has told me a few times to make sure I spend time with Moose, but I don't know how to do that. I don't want Squirt in his crib all the time alone. And he needs held sometimes. I know I'll figure it out but I just don't know how yet. Moose has also watched too much tv today. Ugh.
I am enjoying the day, though. I don't feel like crying (much...c'mon I'm still hormonal).
Be praying that things get easier for Moose and that Squirt's patience doesn't run out. And that maybe I could have even a small nap today.
This is how I found Moose napping the other day. He's just flat up against the slats of his crib - so funny. He had little marks on his forehead when he woke up. LOL I especially love his feet sticking out.
And I made this blanket for Squirt. It's really small, like, smaller than a swaddle blanket. Ha! But it fits him for now and I can always add on later.
