As in, we're staying here (at the new place) tonight. There's still boxes and other randomness strew around the living room, but it looks several orders of magnitude better than it did 2 days ago. It helps a lot that we have lots of closets (CLOSETS! Imagine that!! Europe, can you take notes on this?) and we also have half a garage into which we can pile random stuff that we don't know what to do with quite yet. I'm sure it will all get sorted out soon. Definitely.
Comcast will be coming by tomorrow sometime to set up our internet (right now we're stealing a neighbor's... shhh don't tell anyone). They claim they'll be here between 12 and 2 but you know how that goes, they'll probably show up at 5pm. Donovan's been doing his Mr Sourpuss impression lately, he did this a few days before his 3rd tooth came through and so I think he's working on tooth #4. I hope we get a break after this. After a few nights of only waking up 2-3 times, he's now back to waking 4 times a night (that's about every 2 hours, btw), and frankly I'm amazed I'm not more of a zombie right now. I tell you, mommy hormones are incredible, they must be the equivalent of speed. Unfortunately not only is he waking lots, but his morning wake-up time has been moving up slowly-- he used to sleep till 7am, then it was 6:30, then 6, 5:45, and this morning he was threatening not to go back to sleep after waking at 4am. Um, kiddo, that's where I draw the line. I may be pulling out our sleep books again because I'm not sure how much longer I'm willing to let this go on (hah, as if I have much control). We bought a (cool-mist) humidifier today, wondering if it's his congested nose that's waking him up and hoping that perhaps a humidifier will help. I also gave him a dose of Motrin as he seemed to be in pretty active pain as he approached bedtime, but I don't know how much that's really helped in the past, either. This will also be the first night in a month that we won't all be sharing a bedroom, and maybe, just maybe, that will also help him sleep better? If anyone has other ideas I'd love to hear them. I'm not asking for him to sleep all through the night, I'd just sure love to get one nice 6 hour stretch every night.
Well, I'd better be off to bed, though I expect him to be waking up for his first feeding of the night anytime in the next hour. Oh god I think I hear him now.
