And so, Saturday night was much better for sleep. And then Sunday night was terrible (though not as terrible as Friday). And then Monday night was better again.
I don’t know. I have a doctor’s appointment today to discuss back issues I’m having (physical therapy hasn’t been all that successful, but that’s probably because I cannot stop re-injuring my back by lifting my just-shy-of-20-lbs babies…), and I plan to also discuss with her whether or not something like Ambien might be appropriate. I know you can take it while breastfeeding, but I’m concerned about the co-sleeping factor. Lately, though, Henry has been sleeping next to H on a separate mattress (sometimes), which means that Jack doesn’t have to sleep so close to me, which makes me much less worried about whether I would sleep too deeply and possibly hurt him or something. Still. I need to know more about it’s side-effects. At this point, I need to be out of pain in order to sleep, and I need to sleep (restfully) in order to be out of pain. So maybe it will be the impetus to really try getting Jack to sleep in the sidecarred crib so that I can have my side of the bed to myself again and still be able to tend to him at night.
I don’t know. I just don’t know.
Anyhow, here are photos from days thirteen and fourteen. I got some great shots yesterday. It was almost hard to pick which ones to post (which is why I posted so many!).
Here is Day Thirteen:
These photos are not really fitting with my plan for the month (photos more than snapshots), but we spent our Sunday having a really relaxing day, and most of these shots didn’t come out so well, but since their expressions so clearly show how much fun we were having, I just decided that Day 13 would just have to be a day for snapshots. So, here they are…
And a quick video:
And that’s Thirteen and Fourteen… halfway through!
