The Boys

We recently went to IHOP for some delicious goodness and snapped a quick pic. Sorry for the delayed entries. We've been hit with one calamity after another here. Nothing major, just lots of colds, sickness, and now I went and broke a bone in my foot and have to wear a boot, so I'm hobbling around. Lachlan is doing better at school. He's at the end of his second week and first full week. He's doing much better with the bottle, and I'm nursing him at lunch, so I know he's getting at least one good meal a day. Unfortunately, all attempts at getting him to sleep in his crib have gone by the wayside, especially now that I can't get up and down all night (but to be honest, the attempts ended before I broke my foot...more like when I started back at work). He just sleeps 100x better and longer when he's sleeping next to someone. Bennett wasn't like this at all. He slept better in his crib. I guess its true that you slack with the second kid more, but its because you are just so darn tired taking care of the older one too. We're still figuring it out, but as long as everyone is happy, I think we're doing OK. Of course, when Lachlan is still sleeping with us at age 10, then we'll know we totally screwed up. :-)

Good! I feel better knowing that I'm not the only mom who lets her baby sleep with her! Eli sleeps better with me too. Kevin did also though. It is so hard when you're tired to keep getting up and down all night...and I haven't even returned to work yet. I imagine he'll be sleeping with me then too. Most nights we can get 3 good hours of him in his crib but after he wakes up he won't go back to sleep in his crib. Picture is adorable. He's getting so big!
