Why Did My Kids' Naps Only Overlap by Thirty Minutes Today?

What a cheesy grin this boy has! I love it!

This is the intent look Ace gives Miss E all the time, like he is memorizing her coolness so he can adopt it himself in a few months.

Dh started grad school a few weeks ago, but thankfully Crazy Dh* has not appeared. On the contrary, we've been getting along very well. This is partially due to the fact that Ace is getting older. I'm getting more sleep, and therefore am not constantly annoyed and blaming Dh for everything. Which I think he is thrilled about. Go figure.

The past few nights, Ace has been waking every 1-2 hours wanting his binky popped back in. He's nursing less (a couple of times making it to 5:30 am!) but waking more. Since Dh is the one fielding the binky requests, he's getting really annoyed. I'm starting to think a true cry-it-out might be in order. If Ace can sleep from 6 to 5:30, he's obviously not actually hungry at midnight when he usually nurses. I don't know. I think I'll at least wait until he hits 6 months.

Miss E is still talking about that cow from the pumpkin patch. She tells me that the cow scares her. Oh and she has started the whole "Don't touch me, Ace!" while they are in the double stroller. Frankly, it's hilarious.

As for myself, I'm kind of stuck in Brideshead Revisited. I'm finishing up a crocheted afghan. And I started a cooking blog with EdgyK. I am a freaking nerd! Boo-yah!

*Crazy Dh is the person who replaces my husband when he is in grad school. In the words of Miss E, "I no like it."

I freaking love it that you started a cooking blog! I love mine -- even though, like, NO ONE reads it, it serves as a nice record for me of what I've made and when.

Glad Ace is nursing less (that grin KILLS me, by the way) but sorry to hear he's waking up more. Boys and their binkies, I swear. Andrew goes to bed with his, but inevitably pops it out before he goes to sleep, so much screaming ensues.

Haha, that cracks me up! I'm right there with you! :)

And, for the meme I'm giving you the letter "t."

You are not a nerd, you are freakin awesome. Cooking blogs rule.

OMG he can not seriously be that big yet. Wow. Time flies. They are adorable. :)

Afghans and cooking blogs? You ARE a nerd. I love it when the babies start to interact like siblings. It gets even better.

I can't believe how big Ace is getting, what a cutie!
