I am alone for the 5th night in a row – only one left and B will be home on Saturday afternoon. I usually love the alone time, but a week is a LONG time. Alone time is good in small doses – no more than 3 nights for me.
Matthew is sleeping so well this week, it’s like he knows I need the break. He’s such an easy baby, but when it’s just me, it’s a lot of work. When he naps, all I want to do is watch TV so that the house isn’t silent. I also want to fall asleep to that TV and get some rest since I know I’ll need it when he wakes up. He’s sleeping 11 hours each night. ELEVEN! This is unprecedented and I wonder if it’s here to stay. He’s such a good boy! By the time he wakes up at 7:45, I’m more than ready to play and be up with him!
I’m working on a banner for my friend’s baby shower on Saturday. It’s almost done – not much left to do. I am off to do that after I post this. I have a movie all ready to go downstairs while I work on the banner. I do not like basements – not even my own 😉 I need something to entice me to go down there, and without a TV and DVD player on the main floor of our house, and my need for noise in the house right now – I’m heading downstairs. It will be fun. I’ve done this the last three nights in a row and it’s been fun. I watched “The Vow” last night and “Young Adult” the night before. I usually rent “no-brainers” for craft time so I don’t need to focus on them. HA!
I just got done folding/stuffing Matthew’s diapers. Is it weird that I like washing and organizing his nappies? Ha! Stuffing and folding his diapers has always calmed me, even when he was a newborn. It’s so soothing. Weird!
I am off to work on a banner. YAY! I’ll be glad to have this one done… it’s very limited in the color department and it’s been hard! I have another one right after this one for a special little guy in Canada and it’s way funner! It’s actually half done, but his mama hasn’t seen it yet. I’m anxious to get that one done!
