Can you believe May is HERE? All of our plants are emerging from under the ground like mad. The trees and flowers are spreading their near fatal pollens, in an attempt to make this a Very Bad Allergy Inaugural for me. It's working. In fact, it's working so good that I can't remember what it feels like without a stuffy nose and watery/itchy eyes. I have a prescription waiting for me at the pharmacy. I hope that will help because everything over-the-counter thus far has failed miserably.
In other news. Our very small neighborhood / block will have its 9th boy very soon, all of whom are under age four. (We have the one and only girl of the neighborhood). And then couple of months after that, the 10th boy will arrive. Is there something in the water? Oh and I hear the new homeowners that will move in soon are pregnant. Maybe it'll be a girl!
Speaking of girl. Dare I speak of it, our Fiona has been sleeping through the night since Friday (now that I've said it, I'll probably jinx it!). And she's been doing very well going to naps too. Prior to Friday night, she was eating every hour or 1.5 hours during the night, all night. And she needed to be slinged and nursed for naps. Her stuffy nose has improved tremendously, so on Friday we decided it was time. She slept from 7:40 p.m. to 7:40 a.m., 12 HOURS, with a total crying/fussing time of no more than 25 minutes the entire night. She still makes sounds/fussy noises every 45-90 minutes throughout, but she goes right back to sleep. ALL BY HERSELF! We're so proud of her.
But BB is still waking up 1-3 times per night, crying or running to our room, or both. So we still aren't getting good sleep.
