A few updates and highlights from the past week
January has been the coldest of the winter months so far, finally giving us some snow. Oddly, our apartment's temperature feels closer to, I don't know...Hell? Since we're the top floor, we get all of the heat from our neighbors living beneath us and you'd think it would be nice, but it gets so hot we have to open windows. On the upside, our gas bill was $9.00 last month.
Nursing has become more difficult because Lincoln cannot bear to sit still longer than 2.34 seconds. When I've run out of head-bopping/singing juice, my occasional solution is playing clips of Sesame Street songs on YouTube while angling a nursing Lincoln so he can see, be entertained, and sit still long enough to eat. We call this a "tv dinner."
Since we initiated sleep training two weeks ago, Tyson and I have been somewhere near heaven. Lincoln goes to bed at 8:30 p.m., wakes up at 8:00 a.m., and takes two naps during the day. Boo-yah! In yo face, exhaustion!
Greg is back with The Wiggles! Okay...maybe that's just big news around this house, but we're all pretty excited over here.
So now you know.
