My kid is a rock star night sleeper. She's a hit or miss napper. The last two days have been really good for napping and I've already thanked God for that because Drew & I were feeling under the weather and really needed that quiet time to rest while she napped. Today's napping experience...
I put Eleanor down for her nap, she quietly laid down in her crib with her blanket. I left the room, shut the door behind me, feeling pretty good about myself for being able to do that. Walked into the kitchen to turn on the baby monitor. Monitor didn't work. Remembered that I had to unplug the camera in her room this morning when I discovered that the humidifier had leaked all over the trunk it was sitting on. Went back into her room to plug it in, shut the door again, she started crying. Didn't cry long, then fell asleep. Changed my clothes and got on the treadmill for some much needed exercise. 10 minutes in, Eleanor started crying. Didn't fall back asleep. I waited it out. Still not back to sleep. I stopped the treadmill, went downstairs and into her room, laid her back down, left the room. She kept crying. I got back on the treadmill anyway. She kept crying. I considered calling the workout a lost cause. She stopped crying. I decided to power through the workout. She started crying again. Repeat four billion times (okay, fine, it was 30 minutes). I finally turned the treadmill off and started downstairs to go get my baby. Things got quiet, I checked the monitor in time to watch as she laid back down and went to sleep. So, here I am on the computer. I can't say that that workout was stress relieving (you try exercising while a toddler screams & cries through the video monitor, it's not ideal), but it was better than nothing.
Since it appears that I have a few minutes, let's catch up on things.
Last week we took Nonnie to see her labradoodle puppy. He's 6 weeks old now and will be ready to come home with her soon. Eleanor had fun playing with the other pups...
Kayla, Granny B, Braeden & Eleanor
Foose: I want that pig so bad that drool is literally dripping out of my mouth right now, but I'm going to be nice to the baby.
Eleanor: I know he wants this pig, so I'm going to stand here like I don't even know he exists and pretend like this pig is really important to me.
