Apparently I'm a great looking bed.

Abby has not let me put her down for more than 20 minutes today. Once she realizes she's not on mommy's chest anymore, the waterworks begin. I've created a monster.

Anyway, to catch up, here's the latest in baby land.

She has not slept as long as she did that Sunday night again. In fact, it's like she's waking up more. Boo-hiss. Also, we may have to transition her to her crib sooner rather than later since it's supposed to get so damned cold here this week, and her bassinet is pretty close to a cold wall and drafty window. So, we'll see.

I cleaned and organized Abby's room a few nights ago, and I'm so happy I finally got to it - her room has a floor, turns out. The shelves that need staining are in the hands of my father in law...and the room is FINALLY near completion.

I'm thinking about putting together a list of things I loved/worked well while I was pregnant and stuff I've used/liked and not used/disliked since I've had Abby. If this is something you'd be interested in - let me know!

And finally, in my first step in keeping Abby an only child (at least for the next few years), I'm having an IUD placed tomorrow. Mirena to be exact. I've got my darvocet at the ready, and my mother in law on hand to keep an eye on Abby while I possibly lie on the couch writhing in horrid, crampy pain. I'll deal though. The thought of not having to think about birth control for the next 3-5 years sounds freaking AWESOME. Especially if it tones my cramps down and well, WORKS.

So, there's a boring update for now. Friday we're headed back to my parents for our (early) Christmas. Yessss...


  1. I would love to see a list of all the things you love and hate about certain products and the things that work and don't work for you. that would be wonderful! good luck with the IUD tomorrow!

  2. Yes on the list!

    I'm going through the same thing with being my sons favorite place to sleep. It is my fault, as well.

    I had an IUD for almost three years before trying to have this little Bean and I loved it. I had the non- hormonal IUD, with the copper and that's what I'm getting again at my six week. It wasn't too bad pain-wise... though, the heavy periods suck.

  3. First time commenting. Yes, I would adore such a list you mention. I'm due with my first (a boy) in 8 weeks ... You're rocking the parenthood thing, I can only hope that I'm at least half as competent!
