On Friday, Zekey turned 6 months. They’ve gone so quickly. His new trick is getting up on all fours. I haven’t gotten a shot of it yet. This kid doesn’t quite sleep like his big brothers. He’s still not sleeping consistently at night, he often wakes up for two feedings. I don’t quite know how to get him to do it, I’ve tried the crying it out. Which eliminated at least one of the two feedings when we were in MD. The move brought on a more difficult situation for him to cry it out. The boys are all in the same room, although he doesn’t seem to wake the other two. But there is another guy and his son living across the hall…. I wonder if they hear him cry. Any suggestions? I’m wondering if I just need to accept it because we will be hopping around so much….. but, this will be the last place that I could possibly let him cry it out. I’m still wavering…….
Just some stuff:
Brian hasn’t gotten sick. We are all healthy right now. Zeke is still
restless sometimes, he may be getting his top two teeth in soon. Or
his bowels are still figuring everything out. Malachi and Elijah did really well at daycare last week. They are going from 8:30 to 12:15 on Tues to Fri. Friday night we had our first date in 6 months. The church had a babysitting night so couples could go on dates. All three stayed and did really well. It was so wonderful to go out to dinner and talk and hold hands. We had lots of noise
around here this weekend. From Friday to Sunday there was a biker’s
festival right outside our door. The boys were watching out the
windows constantly. We heard hard rock and classic rock cover songs
from like 10 in the morning to 11 at night. By Sunday I was ready for
the noise to be gone. Elijah kept waking up at night saying he heard
motorcycles, yeah—they were loud. Today’s been quiet.
These are things the boys have done recently. Some are funny, some are not. My oh my, do they find ways to get into things…..
Elijah wrote on his face with my eyeliner pencil.
He put the chip clip on his finger and said, ow, ow, ow!
He got a chip clip stuck on his top lip and yanked it off.
He stuck change in the disc drive.
Malachi fell backwards in his chair and hit his head on the floor—after many reminders not to lean back in it. ( okay, so that’s not funny–but it was an I told you so moment.)
He pinched his finger in the drawer in the kitchen….another I told you so moment.
Malachi put a can of instant tea mix in the microwave and started it. I was right there and thankfully turned it off….it did have metal on it.
Their little hands are so quick. It is much worse when they are instigating together. My eye has to be on them all the time……
