(proof that she really does have 2 eyes under those lids!)i need an outing.
by the time we are all dressed, fed, watered, milked, and ready, it's time for the toddler to be fed again and put down for a nap.
not that we have a plethora of options for outings by any means.
seeing that the newborn is still under isolation restriction.
i keep thinking up options in my head:
walk (need air in tires)
store (we are almost out of diapers and fresh fruit-EMERGENCY!!!)
backyard (no sunshine today, would have to find batteries for monitor if leaving newborn inside...seems easy so why can't i get the dang things out?)
store (diapers, diapers, diapers, fruit)
and by the time i have run these options through my mind throughout the entire day it's time for dinner, bath, books, and bed.
this i attribute to my inability to currently make decisions.
all decisions are put on the back burner to nurse, eat, sleep, nurse, eat, sleep, NAP.
i'm feeling rather proud of the naps i have been clocking, but it's leaving no time for outings.
outings during toddler's nap don't count.
those would be rushed errands, and they are no fun.
half of my options would not include the newborn b/c of their location.
the other half are one option (store) that also does not include the newborn.
i want fresh air and scenery, so a walk sounds like the winner.
but no air in tires.
working to coordinate toddler waking up and newborn needing to be fed must also be included in this option.
along with daylight savings time.
i think i'll have a baby in summer next time.
i'm getting nowhere with this.
which is why when people ask "what's it like having 2?"
i respond, "sllllllloooooooooowwwwwwwww moooooooooottttiiiiiiooooooon."
eventually we'll get our groove, but until then it's back to outing options.
i think i'll just take a nap for now...
(sean said we can fill up the tires. i think we'll attempt a walk. or fall asleep trying.)
in other news...
i pumped this morning thinking it would give me some relief after kinz decided she was full.
i was SORELY (pun intended!) mistaken.
i hope i never have to pump again.
how did i do that so much with brennan??
my hair is greasy on the top, despite my recent shower 2 hours ago.
i'm chalking it up to hormones and may even treat myself to another later today if the outing falls through.
i got the night sweats again.
at least i hope!
i'm making cookies.
and delivering them.
