Walking Day #2!


Poor neglected blog. And poor neglected readers. I don't know what happened or what excuses I can give you. I can say that Flower left here and is home and safe. Yay! We miss her. I'm feeling slightly stressed with all the kids and the fact that I have no alone time at all. The boys have suddenly decided to transition to one nap that starts at 10:30am. They sleep until about 1pm, which is when I've normally been putting Butterfly down for some quiet time. So yeah, no breaks. And no Flower to help me out. Sigh... Today I took a 2 hour nap because Juice was home and I could. I'm beat. So is he. We miss Flower.

Anyway, I did get on today to say that today is the day that Pirate has finally decided that he's going to walk all the time. So many times he fell down today and stood back up to try again. Normally he just crawls when that happened but he was determined today. He is still very unsteady and lurches from one side to the other.

But he is walking!



  1. I remember when Aidan switched to one nap. He napped early too and then was grumpy before bed. I gradually pushed it back til he could at least eat lunch before he went down. Life got a lot easier then. Hopefully soon they will all go down around the same time so you can get a break. Hang in there!

    I'd love to see a video!

  3. Yeah, hopefully you can start moving those two nap times closer together so they meet somewhere in the middle. I was pretty determined to still get my break (naptime for me in my case), so I probably forced it more than they wanted, but darn if I don't need a break by the middle of the day!

    Yay for Pirate! I love how determined babies are. They are such hard workers! If you have time (having no breaks totally stinks) I'd love to know where you got the t-shirt you had for the boys' birthday that said "I think it's been a good year...etc." because I want one for Evie! :)
