Last night the sleeping didn't go much better...a little but I gave into the bottle MUCH quicker now that I know it's the only thing that'll get her back to sleep. So, up for a half hour or so then, then she was crying again a couple hours later but she settled herself down pretty quickly. This morning Steve got up with her around...7 ? (I don't know...) and fed her then took her downstairs and I slept for another 45 minutes or so. That is HEAVEN. He doesn't realize this but those minutes are like precious GIFTS from heaven and score huge points.
We went for a family hike this morning - although it was chilly Ms. Bundled Up did great and slept through most of the hike. It was cold and windy but on the trail in Chester we were nicely isolated from most of that and it wasn't too bad.
This afternoon Dahlia played, I puttered around the house and Steve puttered around outside the house. We're still prepping the room for painting (so much patching, filling, sanding, blah blah blah)...hopefully we'll get going on the ACTUAL painting soon. I'm glad we have a deadline (Nov 24 FLOORS DAY!) - it'll MAKE us get everything done. Whew.
After the Vikings Victory I headed up to Target to restock on diapers and check out snowsuits at the Mall. Miss Dahlia ended up with a lovely down filled snow suit from Baby Gap...I had NEVER been in Baby Gap before (at least not after having a baby) and I shouldn't have gone in there! So. Many. Cute. Things. Ay yi yi...I restrained myself but it was tough.
This evening while feeding Dahlia dinner we learned that the MEAT STICKS (yuck!) must be served LAST because otherwise it's the only thing this kid will eat. She LOVES them. With a passion. It's freaky. She got REALLY irritated when she ate them all and then was left with veggies & pasta from our casserole. We learn...one meal at a time.
Now it's bedtime. Steve's putting Dahlia down with her last bottle of the night. I should be cleaning up the kitchen but I'm blogging instead. I want to watch a movie tonight but I'm not sure if we'll get to it. Netflix is making good $$ off me these days - sheesh!
So, that's that....Tomorrow is Monday, 4 days til the VIP premiere of WHITE MAN'S WORLD, 5 days til the weekend...
