I will write about our vacation, I will post photos, but first, a few 8-weeks-old updates.
This is where Jamie is right now:
That’s right. In his crib. Napping. For more than 5 minutes. Hell, at this point, it’s more than 20 minutes. I did the dishes, started a load of laundry, and cleaned out the entry closet.
For those of you familiar with our sleep issues with Charles, this is a revelation. A baby who sleeps. Without fuss, without fight. As late as last night, Charles put up a screaming fit to get to sleep. Mom, Dad, I am so sorry for those years of sleep problems. I now know what you went through, the agony of “just go to sleep, child, OMFG.” And I know Tony and I are not alone in this issue, not the least because both of our parents dealt with it (I was a bad sleeper, sometimes screaming for hours, and I’m told that Sarah was as well), but also because of the existence of this book. I want to read it, but I’m not sure if it will make me laugh or cry…
Jamie is smiling now, and often, too. He’s just so chill and happy. He wants nothing more in life (so far) than to have his diaper changed, be fed (all the time), and be held by mom. I’ll take it.
My days are just awesome right now.
