for 3 days that is. I went into school earlier this week for the end of year meetings while my mom watched Holly. I have to admit it felt really good to be out of the house and around adults. I actually looked forward to going in on Sunday night. It makes me think that I don't in fact want to be a stay at home mom- does it make me a bad mother that I enjoyed the time away from her? The only problem with working is that when I get home I just want to veg and that's just not possible with her :(
It's been so hard being trapped in this house with Holly and not feeling like I can go anywhere with her. She's eating about every 3 hours and I try to get her to nap for about 2 otherwise she gets really over tired and then nights are horrible. So with a schedule like that it means we really don't have time to do anything. She has decided that sleeping in her car seat is not that fun anymore, so taking her for walks in the stroller doesn't knock her out like it used to. It's also too hot and humid to walk around with her strapped to my chest using the ergo, so we're kind of stuck.
Holly loves to smile now and makes eye contact all the time. In fact I have to pretend I'm asleep when I'm holding her and trying to get her to get drowsy otherwise she just stares at me the whole time. Nights have been pretty good. She's been going down around 9:30 and sleeping until 4- except last night she woke up around 1:30 to eat but I think that's because her eating/nap schedule got messed up yesterday b/c she missed her afternoon nap when I went to pick her up at my mom's. So hopefully she will be back on schedule today.
