I have a confession. William isn’t sleeping through the night yet, and I kind of don’t mind. Don’t get me wrong. I do mind the forgetful mushy brain that creeps into my workday, but I don’t mind these quiet moments.
He was sleeping pretty well until he started teething. There are some other factors involved. I have spent too much time getting Estelle to sleep all night for almost 5 years, and the results are mediocre. STILL. Why bother? I might just ride the wave, and see where William ends up. I have resources and know-how if I want to course correct. Also, soothing a baby without picking him up is kind of hard to do when the kids share a room. Seemingly endless crying is involved, and nobody wants both kids up at the same time. Has anyone had much luck with shared rooms and getting babies to sleep for longer stretches?
While we are on the subject of sleep, I might just skip folding laundry in favor of an early bedtime.

Why fiddle with technology when we have these two hams to entertain us constantly?!
Let’s see, Willie is full of tricks these days…clapping, waving, bumping his head and sprouting teeth. He remains a sweet smiley boy, and Estelle remains a great big sister. We are lucky in so many ways, and I never take that for granted.
Happy Early Groundhog Day,

It’s that time again, folks. Baby boy is seven months old today. We just found his first tooth yesterday. That, along with his first ear infection, would explain the poor sleeping! He is sitting by himself with fewer topples, and his legs go so fast when he’s on his tummy. Mobility is imminent.

David started this series by snapping our portraits one sleepy work-a-day morning. Here it is, in all it’s glory. No, I do not look very sleepy. Yes, I do have makeup on at an absurdly early and dark hour. Despite my efforts, I still don’t get out of the house on time.
I know, I know…no blog posts in a month, and all of a sudden I post twice in 24 hours. Sick days at home free up a little more blog time. We’re all on the mend, and everyone should be back to work and school tomorrow. Just in time for the weekend.

The holiday card photo that never was…
They had on new pajamas! However, William needed a nap and Estelle had something in her eye. We ran out of time, and ended up using an Instagram photo from this summer on our holiday cards. As of today, Estelle’s new pajamas have bike grease on them. Better luck next year…
