How's it going ladies?

Whine: Charlie is sick and won't let me put him down. I didn't get any sleep last night.

Wahoo: I'm still on mat leave and am loving every second of the time I get to spend with my babies (yes including the rough patches).

Whine: I got 3.5 hours of sleep last night

Wahoo: I went to the dermatologist this morning and Ryan did not listen to me when I said he needed to sleep through the appointment. I needed to nurse him, and it was a crowded waiting room with old men. So I asked the receptionist if they had the room ready and were just waiting on the doctor so I could nurse, and they didn't, but they set me up in another small room with a cozy chair. I thought that was really nice of them : )

Whine: I don't have much to whine about. DH still needs to learn to comfort Juliet during her PURPLE crying time.. the Happiest Baby on the Block works but he skips swaddling... really? skipping the first step and you wonder why I get up out of bed when I hear her getting more and more upset... follow the method, it actually works for our kid!

Wahoo: we have some kind of schedule for sleeping.. she goes to bed around 11pm/12 am and sleeps 4-5 hours! then she'll wake to eat for a few minutes, go back to sleep for another 2-3 hours, eat a bit more and right back to sleep for an additional 2-3 hours. I am enjoying this routine while it lasts.

The Happiest Baby on the Block helped us so much with Anna. I had to watch it a few times to get the swaddling down.

I'm really jealous of your schedule too! We're working on establishing one, but we're not quite there yet. What do you do to get her ready for bed? We do bath, boob, bed, and he'll sleep about 3 hours, but then is up every 2 over night.

Whine: I could whine about being sleepy but what good would that do? Instead I will whine about all the WET snow we are getting and how I am going to have to fight morons on my drive home from work.

Wahoo: Uhh...I love Flynn so much it makes my heart hurt sometimes. I am so glad he is in our lives.

Sarah, we are letting her lead. We have a bath after 8pm, lotion, clothing, feeding. She stays awake for 2 hours and by 10pm we turn off lights or dim them, swaddle her and interact less. I do my best to keep her stimulated during the day with lots of talking, singing and music

She started leading us week 4. You will get there!! You are doind great

Whine: I had to go get Bella from my sister's because she seems to have gotten a cold. I wanted to start her on her inhalers ASAP. While at my sisters, Chloe threw up twice.

Woohoo: I'm excited about my eye appointment tomorrow.

Whine: I've had a very emotional day, a friend of mine was in a car accident, it was really bad. She was hit by a cement truck and her daughter died shortly after.

Wahoo: My children are healthy and safe.

Whine: My sister is leaving for a 3 month long trip abroad so I will be totally on my own during the days now.

Woohoo: My boyfriend MIGHT be getting a promotion, but his schedule is changing so he will work a regular day shift! Can't wait!!!
