Friday Free-For-All

The truck is once again in the shop. The brakes were shot, so Ben and his dad started the job, only to find out that the parts they bought were wrong. It’s been over a week now that the truck has been out of commission, so we’ve been borrowing a car from my in-laws when possible. I’m carless today, which is proving to be challenging because…

Vera is going through a three-month growth spurt and I am in ROUGH shape. She’s been super cranky while she’s awake, eating every 1.5 hours, and waking a lot more often during the night. My typically calm, easy-going baby is basically just screaming the entire time she’s awake. I’m just trying to remember that this is temporary, and will pass. But damn am I tired. And being trapped in the house is making it harder to deal.

Thank goodness for the automated Rock ‘n’ Play my Aunt Beth gifted us. It has a vibrate mode that seems to mimic the motion of a carseat, which helps Vera fall asleep and stay asleep longer. She’s been taking at least one big long nap during the day after being so fussy at night. I’m planning to move it into our bedroom tonight and see if it will help us all sleep better.

Any tips for dealing with a sad, fussy baby?

    The 5 S’s and lots of boob. Also ice cream. And hang on for dear life. But really? Find as much balance between dealing with her and self care for you. Get outside and enjoy the weather as much as you can. Try to use distraction (grass! Wind! Leaves!). But unfortunately, she is just gonna have times like this. Le sigh. Hang in there mama

      Thanks, lady. My MIL came over yesterday and forced me to get out for a walk, which was just what I needed. And last night was somewhat better. Also, it’s the weekend so I have Ben’s help today. ❤️
