Survived Day 1

Yeah!  We survived Day 1 without Daddy! 

Today was Matt’s first day back to work so it was just Alex and me for the most part.  Last night was rough – up 3 times (lots of 99 bottles of milk on the wall), and then I was up at 7:20 with Matt to ensure that Mason got off to the groomers on time.  Alex woke up at 9am and he had a bottle (Yeah!),  played, ate breakfast, played, 2 hours later he had a 2 hour nap (Yeah!).  Matt works at the school behind our house so he came home for lunch – giving me a break to have a shower and get out of my pjs.  After he left, Alex woke and Matt’s mom came over at 1, just after Alex woke up.  We gave him his lunch, played, and then I tried to get him down for a nap – he was SO FUSSY!  I knew he was tired, but he wouldn’t settle until I put the Ergo on.  Then within 5 minute he was out for another 2 hours.  Matt was home by 4 and by 5 Alex was up and playing with his daddy.  I am very lucky to have a hubby who can be home much earlier than regular business hours.  My lovely neighbour Joni thoughtfully brought over a lasagna yesterday ready for me to pop into the oven for dinner – she knew it was going to be a tiring day for me!  Thanks Joni!

So now Matt has just put him to bed – I’ll be on night time duty.  We hope that we can continue with this schedule – let’s see if Alex can!

Now I have to research how to cut those little nails – they hurt!!  My friend gave us a first aid kit with clippers that have a magnifying glass on them – but he squirms like  a worm and both Matt and I couldn’t keep him still!
