ok, i have no idea what's up with parker. he rocks on his sleep....as long as it's during the day or the first 1/2 of the night. we put him down for bed around 9:30. i give him a little "dream feed" (feed them w/out really waking them up) around 11-11:30 before i head to bed. so he sleeps from about 9:30-2:30 or 3:00 solid. awesome. i can do that. but then he gets up to eat then. he'll sleep for about an hour after that and then wake up and act like he's starving! i don't feed him...instead i struggle to get him back to sleep and he fights me the whole time. legs kicking, arms flailing about like crazy. he finally will give in after about 15-20 minutes of this...fussing the whole time. he sleeps for another hour..wakes and repeats. by this time i usually just feed him even though it's only been about 1.5-2 hours by this time. so he eats...and then repeats it again ...we do this until about 7am when he'll eat again and then finally fall into a good sleep. and then he sleeps. and sleeps and does great. i usually have to wake him again to feed him or he'd sleep right through the morning. so who knows. i don't like not feeding him when he acts like he's hungry even if it's only an hour later but i don't know if he's really hungry...like maybe he didn't eat enough the last time...or if he's just wanting that to go back to sleep. so i think i'm just going to give him a bottle at that 2:30 time when he wakes up so i know for sure he's ate enough and maybe he'll sleep longer then??? ahhh, life with an infant is so confusing! and this is my 3rd time around.
in other randomness...i'm thrilled it's playoff time right now. loved watching the heat get their butts kicked by the bulls last night! nothing makes me happier than to see shaq miserable. :) such good times.
today the kids are bike riding again.....they ride the trails behind our house. there is a whole slew of kids that go...4 families this weekend going. not i said the fly.....i actually love bike riding but i can't w/ parker. i thought i'd just invest in a jogging stroller and run with them...we shall see. today i'll just pack a lunch and meet them at the park where they end.
and i'm spring cleaning. went out to the container store and target yesterday to get some organizational products....cuz that always motivates me to clean. today i tackeld the pantry and i'll clean out the "bat cave" which is what we call the closet under the stairs. frankly i'm frightened of what i might find in there. :)
hoping the sun decides to shine sometime today. :)
