I tired nursing Izzy in his room with the door shut, and Porgie threw a major tantrum. Of course, he couldn't sleep because of all of the screaming. So, I have decided that I am going to invest in a few baby gates. I am going to try to corral Porgie into the living room and dinning room area, while I nurse Izzy to sleep in his room. The boy needs some sleep and mommy needs some peace. I am fairly confident that Porgie is going to FLIP OUT the first time I trap her in the living room, but hopefully she will adjust.
Porgie hated being swaddled when she was a baby, so we didn't swaddle her. After a few days home from the hospital, Izzy started fighting the swaddle too. For a few weeks, I stopped swaddling him. However, he was sleeping horribly at night. So, I purchased a new swaddling blanket and gave it another try. Although he still hates having his arms restricted, he will usually settle down after a few minutes. OH MY GOD, my child has been sleeping for longer than 30 minutes at a stretch at night. It is a miracle. I only got up to feed him three times last night!!!
My husband isn't such a jerk after all. He stayed home from work last Friday, and sent me to a day spa to have a massage and to get my hair done. Although this was a very sweet gesture, he failed to take into account the fact that I am breastfeeding. So, I skipped the massage for time's sake, and just had my hair done. I LOVE IT. Seriously, it is the best haircut I have ever had, and the color is perfect. I am a red head again! It is fabulous!
John gave the spa his credit card number when he made the appointment, because he didn't want me to see the bill. However, the goofy receptionist printed out the bill anyways. Holy crap - having my hair cut and dyed was $158! Yikes. I still think it was totally worth it. My hair is so pretty!
Porgie has been learning lots of new things, not all of them good. She likes to shove her fingers down her throat and make herself gag. Very annoying. She also likes to spin in a circle until she is dizzy and falls down. Very cute, but also a like scary. I just know that she is going to end up getting hurt.
Porgie has also been learning lots of new words, like "thank you" and "you're welcome." Her new favorite word is, "Izzy." She also loves to say "paw print," "think," and "clue." Can anyone guess which kid show Porgie likes best?
I think that just about sums everything up.
