It’s been a while since I participated in Seven Quick Takes but I just felt drawn to it today…Lots of things that aren’t enough for a full post. I think I’m closing in on the end of the first trimester. Not that it means much. This pregnancy has been so subtle that if I hadn’t been pregnant before, I’d brush it up to other problems. I could ALMOST see the whole “I didn’t KNOW I was pregnant” thing. Except when it comes to the kicking, belly, & heartburn. Come on. Really.
Since we are pregnant, we are starting the process of getting Lil’ Bit to her own bed. So we are night weaning. Once she falls asleep, I don’t let her nurse until at LEAST 4:00-4:30 AM. And often she didn’t need to. But now we need to make sure that she doesn’t. I can’t be night nursing two :). I’ve found that a later bedtime and hardy bedtime snack help her to sleep longer. Any other tips? She’s 20 mos old.
Carrie @ Reading to Know has started a new challenge/blog: Reading my Library. I love it! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that instead of just getting overwhelmed about where to start or how would I find a good book for Lil’ Bit.
Incidentally, I also won the first three books of the Anne of Green Gables series from Carrie and got them in the mail the other day. I can’t wait to start them. Thanks, Carrie!
Speaking of books and libraries, my local branch had their used book sale last week and I SCORED! I got 20+ PRISTINE vintage Disney records, including my husband’s favorite from when he was a child: Rudyard Kipling’s Just-So Stories (including the Elephant’s Child, read by no other than the voice of Sir Hiss in Robin Hood)!! I got some neat kids books, too, but the records were the height of my day!
And it was a Disney kind of weekend, because while I was standing in line waiting for the library to open, I got an email that I had won a Disney prize pack from 5 Minutes for Mom!
We also went to a Fall Harvest Festival at a quasi-local apple farm (an hour and a half away). We were kind of let down. The weather was nice, but it just wasn’t very cool. Lil’ Bit, as always, was attracted to the play structure/swings. They had no cider. WTF?!? The donuts were awesome (fresh out of the oven…yum!). And it was a little early for Bones’ favorite apples, though the Honeycrisps might be my new favorite. Anyway, it wasn’t much better than the heirloom apple farm & they have TONS of varieties.
So that’s it for me. For more quick takes, visit Jen @ ConversionDiary.com.
