So, my laptop power cord has (once again) bit the dust. This is tragic for my blog posting/reading, but not anywhere near as tragic as it could have been before my sweet new Kindle arrived on Tuesday. I haven’t gotten a lot of time to play with it yet, but so far, I am enjoying it quite a bit. Despite the fact that it’s lightweight enough to do so, I haven’t yet figured out using it one-handed, which is the only annoying thing I’ve found about it yet.
But this is not a post for a Kindle review (though maybe I’ll write one later…). This is just a quick post to say a few things:
1. Due to the whole laptop-has-no-power garbage, pardon if my posting/commenting is light over the coming days. I determined the other day that I do almost all of my blogging while the boys are nursing or sleeping on my lap, and that can’t happen in front of my desktop computer, sadly. Sigh. I’m ordering a new cord today, but with the weekend, it’s gonna be a while. Grr.
2. I went to a dermatologist’s appointment yesterday for my annual skin check. I was pronounced free from questionable moles, etc., but he pointed out that my c-birth scar is still looking pretty red, redder than he would expect at three months out. And truthfully, it’s been hurting a bit lately, so I think I will take the dermatologist’s advice and call my OB. Any advice from any of you that have had c-births? How long did yours take to heal? I’m thinking it probably doesn’t help matters that a certain someone (ahem, JACK, ahem) has crazy-accurate aim when kicking me in his sleep, and spends a good part of the night jabbing my lower abdomen…
3. Speaking of Jack, HOLY MOLY. So it begins… He rolled over yesterday, fully, from back to front. He gets quite angry when he finds himself on his stomach after a while, but he also gets equally pissed if you turn him back over on his back. He just wants to practice his new trick. I’m sure Henry isn’t far behind, but all I know is that this is the first in the series of physical milestones that set in motion many, many more to come. Things are about to get busy around here!
4. Another HOLY MOLY… I’m not entirely sure, but I *think* both boys basically slept through the night. They only woke twice last night, and I think it was at 12:30 and again at 5:45, which, like, technically counts as “sleeping through the night”, right? H and I were both shocked when we got up for the day that they had only been up twice in the night, and we both clearly remember 12-ish and 5-ish, but we also both keep thinking that there was a 2-ish wake up, but we also both clearly know that there were only two wake-ups… so who knows? I think we are mis-remembering the 2-ish wake-up from a previous night, but you all know how the sleepy brain is… I don’t know. All I really know is that I’m practically giddy with the abundance of sleep I got last night (went to bed at 9:30…). It’s amazing what a difference the lack of interruption can make.
I’m just hacking this out on the quick while the boys are still sleeping in their car seats after we returned from Book Babies (so pardon the lack of editing…). Henry slept through the first half of the class, and I got a little sample of what it’s like to be a singleton mom… SO much more fun to be able to do all the songs and movements with just one baby in my lap! Ah, but I imagine there will be plenty more times in the future where I will find that two babies are way more fun than just one.
Oh, and lastly, does anyone know how to “follow” a WordPress blog using Blogger? I have no idea and Circus Princess is wondering how to do so…
