Did I mention that at over five months of age, Helen is still not sleeping through the night? Did I also mention that she thinks bottles are a thing of evil? And did I mention that she believes pacifiers are spawns of the devil?
Sleep training is underway and we are down to two night wakings instead of three. Tuesday is the day we "break her" from her dependency on Elsie the Cow (that would be me) by forcing the bottle issue. She can still have the good stuff, but she is going to have to vary her drinkware, if you know what I mean. By next week, I am committed to waking each morning next to my husband again, instead of passing out exhausted in the spare bed in Helen's room.
In the meantime, I've no energy to even upload some recent pictures of happenings around the Moss house. I can't completely blame Helen. Afterall, watching the Olympics has burned the retina out of my eyes each night for sixteen days straight.
So briefly our happenings have included parting with our friend, Wilson, at his third birthday party. We've see super cute pictures from that on facebook (don't you want to join? http://www.facebook.com/). We played with our friend, Lauren and her little sister, Emily, at Homewood Park and had a picnic lunch there. We also fed the ducks with our friend, Max. And you can see pictures from that on the Nipper's Corner here. Yep, my friend Renee is busy showing me up by updating her blog more regularly that I despite having just given birth two weeks ago.
What have we not done?
Changed the cat litter (actually cross that one out, thank you, Daddy!)
Completed potty training (then again, are men ever completely potty trained?)
Once I get a handle on my household this week by channeling some June Cleaver vibes, I'll be back in touch.
