Life Lately

Wow, it's been a while! Maybe because last week was super, super exhausting. Here's a little of what we've been up to:

Napping in her crib for the first time
{The first but hopefully not the last time Claire slept in her own room in her crib.  It didn't last very long...}

Adam is liking his job and enjoying getting to know his co-workers. The other people in his department are mostly young, single guys and since his company doesn't have official business hours, most of his co-workers come in around ten and leave at seven or eight. He won't have to keep those not-exactly-baby-friendly hours forever, but that's the plan until he knows the ropes. 

Claire did reasonably well on a nap schedule for a week and then decided she never needs to take a nap again, thank you. No amount of nursing, rocking, singing, cuddling, baby-wearing, stroller-ing or car-riding will put her to sleep for more than fifteen minutes. But her smiles and giggles are pretty darn cute, so I guess we'll keep her.

Caitlin is spending 95% of her time feeding Claire and trying to get her to nap. She's getting the new apartment unpacked at a snail's pace {or more accurately, at the pace of a mama snail with a very needy baby snail to care for} and sort of regretting starting a painting project right now.

But, things are definitely looking up this week. Claire has resigned herself to napping in the Baby Bjorn again, which isn't exactly ideal but we'll take it for now. And her grandparents are coming to visit this weekend!


  1. Good luck with the napping! I can totally relate! Some days Michael naps and it's awesome ... other days he refuses, as well. Makes me wonder how many babies people who wrote those baby books actually knew ... sometimes the baby just DOESN'T DO IT. lol.

  2. Ah! I'm scared! Please don't tell me Amelia will stop napping soon! And keep going mama snail! I'm sure your apartment will be homey and beautifully done before you know it!


You are awesome.
