Yay for only 3 wake ups Jax I hope today goes well for naps! I'm still awake 4-5 times with lo but we cosleep so it's not so bad, I would miss his snuggles since he is constantly on the go when he is awake. I only see him for an hour or two during the day because of my crazy work schedule so I cherish cosleeping with him even though I sometimes miss sleeping independently or on my stomach!
Work is insane and I think about taking a demotion daily because I miss my baby. I won't but I can dream. Lo is doing well at the new daycare thankfully and it is much easier on me now. He did get his first fat lip there yesterday trying to stand without holding on, he fell forward and hit his lip on a shelf.

Thanks spikesmom! We were co sleeping too but I was unhappy with it. Happy to hear your LO's daycare is working better for you guys. Good for him for trying to stand up on his own though! My LO does that too, unsuccessful though lol..
It's hard, this mom thing. I will only get to see baby for a few minutes before it's bedtime tonight. Like spikesmom, that's why I don't mind the cosleeping too much. But oh, to be carefree with my arms in my sleep!!! Ha. I'm looking to have a good day, though I can think of a hundred other things I'd rather be doing than working. Pixie, hope your dinner is painless!
Second flight of the week and Liam did amazing. He just slept from the moment we got on the plane till we landed and had to get off.
I stay at home with Liam and I totally understand the cosleeping , especially for workin mamas.
We don't, but he occasionally spends some time with us. We cosleep the first half of the week but I just can't sleep with him. He moves so much. The biggest problem is he tries to shove his head under our pillows which makes me worry. In his crib he is free to flip around as much as he wants.
Jax we have definitely had that problem before, thankfully it didn't last long so maybe it was a growth spurt or teeth or something. One thing that helped us was having a "routine" for naps. I say that loosely because all we do it lay down quietly and nurse but it seems to trigger her to sleep.
Do u have a carrier?? When lo is fighting naps sometimes wearing her around helps to calm her a bit. Sorry u are having this problem, mom's need babies to nap! I'm sure you are not doing anything wrong, babies are so unpredictable!

jjh1119 When you fly are you holding him in your lap or using a carseat? We'll be flying in a couple months (a long flight) and got LO a seat so we'll be using her carseat. I'm just curious about how it worked logistically with carrying it through the airport among all the other crap you have to carry around.
I definitely understand the cosleeping thing, for wanting extra snuggles when you can't see your LO very often. My LO has never slept in our bed though, because apparently for her being in Mommy and Daddy's bed is party time. The blankets and pillows and people are WAY too exciting.
Today was LO's 9 month appointment (Yes, I know, she just turned 10 months, but we changed insurance companies and doctors, so we had to wait till they had an opening). She's 21 pounds and 28 inches! I was mainly interested in finding out these stats to know if I could still use our infant car seat, which we can. Yay!

I love our library. They now have these discovery boxes with certain subjects for kids 0-6. I grabbed the bugs one and Isaac is loving it. They have 5 books, a wooden puzzle, a game and pictures It's funny because the week before, I made a discovery box of kitchen items from the dollar store.
