I can hardly believe it’s Friday already and Craig’s spring break is coming to an end. I’m so happy we got to spend so much time together as a family again — it makes me anxious for the school semester to end already and for summer to make its appearance. I just need to hold on for one more month.
I wouldn’t have survived this week without Craig by my side. I’m not sure if the craziness of the birthday party set it off or if that was just a crazy coincidence, but Wes was just not himself pretty much all week. Following the disastrous sleep over the weekend, things reached their boiling point Wednesday when Wes basically demanded to be carried by Craig all day and then refused to sleep between 1 am and 5 am. Thankfully, Thursday was a much better day all around, with a solid night’s sleep and some fun moments earlier in the day.
(how come I don’t hear anything?)
I think it’s possible he’s teething or perhaps he’s on the cusp of walking – he’s been doing so much better standing and walking by the hand with us. Then again, he also received his chicken pox vaccine on Monday, and who knows what effect that had. We do know that whatever was going on, he’s nice and healthy, which is all that matters. He’s weighing in at 25 lbs. 4 oz. and measuring 31 and a quarter inches. And now that he’s been cleared for all foods, he’s been enjoying some delicious strawberries and nicely making the transition to whole milk. Our last bottle of formula is sitting in the refrigerator right now, and though I know it’s not nearly the same as breastfeeding, I must admit to a little bit of sadness as one more baby thing fades into the past.
Craig has Monday off, so we’ve still got a few more days before reality sets back in. We hope to make the most of it. Happy weekend everyone.
