Hello, Outside World.
We had ice, snow, and, thankfully, power over the past several days. Things are starting to thaw out now and our backyard has that frosted-mini-wheat look to it that I love.
The bedtime/nighttime routine is working out as well as can be expected. Merrick is teething, plus I think he’s hit that lovely stage where he starts to get a little separation anxiety whenever I’m not around. But I can’t complain. Although he still wakes up 50 times a night, he’s easy to console and he usually goes right back to sleep after only a few minutes (instead of the usual half-hour breastfeeding session, which, I admit, was made a habit by my laziness more than his desire to eat.)
Of course he’ll sleep miserably tonight just because I typed something about it.
I’m still a little homesick for Florida; my sister Katie is planning a wedding and Reese is getting baptized in March.
I’m getting a haircut tomorrow.
And then we’re going to a wine/goodbye party at a friend’s house.
That is all.
