Oh you'll love this. Yesterday afternoon my DH told me he couldn't watch the baby because he was still "working" and then when he found out that my mom and I wanted to go out and shop and would just wait till after his work day suddenly he found the time to watch her since he wanted to play bball after work and obviously wanted me to watch her then. Somehow my face of dismay baffled him after that. So over the "work" excuse, but I'm trying to be careful of the "what I do is harder than what you do" debate. I'm hoping we can just trade off and be considerate of each other and it will work. Hopefully lol

In my defense, I think Ember is going through a growth spurt.
I did the same thing. I really don't want her to get used to falling asleep on me but sometimes I need what I call "survival sleep."

She's grown 2 inches since birth though and up 5oz from birth weight so I have to assume all of that would make one fussy. Also she really is getting backed up lately. I've been trying everything, but each day we seem to be back to square one.
