MishMash

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

- Sometimes, while driving when I can't hear what Isaac is saying, I will try to turn up his voice using the volume controls in the steering wheel. I'm always disappointed when the radio only increases in volume.

- I don't fit into my skinny jeans, so I'm still wearing the 2-3 sizes too big pair that I bought from H&M for $10 that I wore throughout my pregnancy with Ezra. They are literally so big on me that I can shimmy out of them without unbuckling or zipping them. It's a little ridiculous that I'm still wearing them.

- Ezra is still in bed with us, has been for the last two weeks, and none of us are sleeping well. I invested in a Magic Sleep Suit, specifically made to combat the 4 month wakeful and transition to unswaddling. It's pretty much my last hope. I've actually resorted to trying CIO, which my entire being fights against, and all that resulted in was a very sad baby who would fall asleep for 5 minutes and wake up with a mixture of whimpering and screaming. It.was.awful.

- I know I've said it before, but I wish we could have a videotape on Isaac 24/7. Some of the things that he says are just hilarious.

[On the way to my Mom's church this weekend]
Isaac: Mama, does Grandma Julie's church have doughnuts?
Me: I'm not sure bud.
Isaac: I'll check it out.

[Levi and Bethany stopped by last night]
Levi: What's your favorite animal Isaac?
Isaac: A turtle.
Levi: What would you name him if you had a turtle?
Isaac: Ummmm, ummm . . . John Deere!

Isaac's age sounds like SO much fun!! Reminds me of how my mom jotted down my hilarious sayings as I grew up and now, reading back over that journal makes me laugh until I cry every time. Keep documenting the funnies!!

I say that all the time, too, that I wish I had a video camera on Henry all the time because of all the hilarious things he says and does. I never want to forget any of it!!!

A turtle named John Deere is pretty much the best thing ever :)

Isaac is so cute!

I can't do CIO either. I know some people swear by it, but it's just not right for us. Fortunately, our baby hasn't been TOO wakeful, although she's definitely sleeping a little lighter at night... we still swaddle her, though, and she's usually quickly comforted back to sleep when she does wake.

So, is the magic sleep suit working? Carter is still in a swaddle, but is learning how to break out by morning.
