Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |amusedamused]

Steve is playing an extended round of This Little Piggie with Chloe. As per usual for Steve, when he ran out of regular piggies he began making up his own. Some of my favorites:

  • This little piggie had roast beef. This little piggie had none, because he was a vegan.

  • This little piggie lobbied for campaign finance reform. (Me: None of the other little piggies did? Steve: No, even though it's an important issue that piggies complain about, no one cares enough to actually do anything about it.)

  • This little piggie didn't go to market; this little piggie never leaves the house because he suffers from agoraphobia brought on by his experiences in 'Nam.

This is what it's like in this house when she sleeps eleven hours a night, seven of them in a row. We get giddy from the oversleeping. Can you blame us?

Seven nights in a row? FOR THE WIN! \o/ That is seriously awesome.

Thursday and Friday nights were both awful, nothing longer than 2 and a half hours at a stretch, and three or four diaper blow-outs/leaks. So when she sort of wriggled around and cried out around 2:30 I thought "Oh thank God, we're back to four hours at a stretch." But when she didn't make any more noise Steve got the flashlight to check and see if she was awake and said "Um.. her eyes are closed." I said "Come back to bed." And she did it a couple of more times as the night went on but finally got up around 5:30, nurse for about 7 minutes and then went back down like a ton of bricks until 9:30 with only a tiny 5 minute diaper change in the middle. I feel like a new person, Molly.

She's the light of my life, but as Thoreau said "There was never a child so beautiful that his mother was not glad to see him asleep."

Hey, I'm glad you commented.. I need your help. I went back to WW on Monday but I've had a bitch of a week because I have no real structure and the baby makes me both stress eat and snack. Any advice for how to do this for the next few weeks before I go back to work and get some structure back? How do moms do WW?

Gosh, honey... that's a tough one. When I started WW, Zack was already 9. Structured mealtimes and sleep schedules were very in place.

I can only tell you to work the plan. You know what you need to do, and you can only try to fit it in to your day as best as you're able. The biggest thing to remember is to give yourself a break if it doesn't happen every day. That you're trying is what counts.

You took the weight off once - you can totally do it again.
