This weekend was wonderful, Kyle watched the kids Saturday morning and I got to escape for a couple hours for bookclub. It was marvelous. Then we were off to a small hike & the beach with some friends. In the afternoon I took annika to the library with me while Saben napped & found some new fun books to read. I can't believe what a difference it makes to have something interesting to do while I am nursing. It lifted my spirits immediately. We made a great dinner and Annika even went to bed by 9:30 pm which is early these days.
Kyle brought Annika to me for feeding at 2am both mornings when she woke up, which is such a luxury. Usually I don't make him get up because he has such a hard time going back to sleep. Then at 9:00am I put Annika down on her bed with a pacifier...and she slept 3 hours! I got to dig in the garden all morning and was sooooo happy. We placed a bunch of boulders that have been sitting around for a month and I moved some plants around to new homes. Things were already getting too crowded out there so I thinned things out a bit.
Then this afternoon Annika fell asleep nursing & napped again for another 1.5 hours! I got the kitchen cleaned and even took a shower! Miracles for sure, who knows what goes on with her. Well she's yelping now (she literally sort of sounds like a seal) so I better go rescue her from her exersaucer.
This whole week should be great, my mom is taking Saben for a couple days, then Halloween... yipee!
