Happy Birthday To Us

It was Daniel's and my birthday recently. It was a very strange birthday. We didn't actually get each other any presents, because we were both too busy dealing with Declan. Daniel said I didn't have any hobbies now besides the baby, and he's right. I got Daniel a Grill Daddy, (as seen on tv...oooh, ahhh). Heh.

But Declan gave us such a rough time this weekend. He went 2 days without napping at all, and he was still waking up in the middle of the night hungry. I know he's a big boy and he's supposed to be able to sleep through the night now, but he was hungry enough to eat a full bottle in the middle of the night. It's not like he's snacking and just wanting attention.

Yesterday, he was so tired, and he was fighting going to sleep with every ounce of his being. It was funny and sad and frustrating to see him yawning so much, but when we put him down, he'd be wide awake and want to play. He'd also cry if he lost sight of either of us. He wanted to be upright all the time, and hated being on his playmat. All in all, it was a long, rough weekend.

Today was much better though. He slept the night through (was the rice cereal last night the reason?) and he napped twice today. I was able to make chocolate brioche, then chocolate brownies to take to work tomorrow. I even got the second set of curtains hung up in his room and did a load of laundry. I feel rather productive today.
