Lots of little Things

BBZ has slept all night the last 2 nights.  This is the first time in months that it has been 2 nights in a row!  He has also been home with me the last 2 days, so it could be that he was getting sick and needed to sleep more.  But then again, when he is sick he tends to wake up more.  Who knows, but I'll take it whatever the reason!
----------
I tried to let BBZ cry a little on Monday night when he had a hard time going to sleep.  While he was in there crying I picked up my copy of "Mothering the Nursing Toddler" and turned to the chapter on night waking.  It made a huge impact on me and on my willingness to go into his room at night.  Then he slept through the night.  Oh well, it was still worth the read.
----------
We get Netflix and can watch any movie we want through N's Xbox 360.  I have been watching the 1st season of Lost, which is awesome!  I finally know what all the fuss is about.  The bad thing is there are 6 seasons with between 16 and 25 episodes in each season.  Let's just say I have plenty of TV to watch for a while!
----------
N also found The Wiggles and introduced them to me.  They are kind of creepy, but I can't seem to get their songs out of my head.  And BBZ loves them!  And I love the way he says Wiggles. 
----------
BBZ has turned under our dining room table into a little fort that he insists that I play in with him multiple times each day.  He also insists that Delilah come under there with us, which is a little tight, but it works!
----------
Our washer broke over the weekend, so we bought a new set on Sunday.  They were delivered today, but at first I thought the washer wouldn't work for us because well, it's a little too fancy.  We spent a little extra money and went for the environmentally friendly one, but I didnt' realize that it saves energy by using a sensor that measures the amount of clothes in the washer to determine how much water to use.  You aren't supposed to open it once the cycle starts or it could mess up the sensor.  This doesn't jive well with my cloth diaper washing routine.  I won't bore you with the details, but I think it might still work with the extra rinse and some adjusting to my routine.  Overall, it's pretty nice to have new appliances!
----------
Ok, I think that's it.  Back to work tomorrow as long as BBZ's illness subsides.  Happy Hump Day!  Oh, and St. Patty's Day too!

  1. 1. Lost will make you lose your mind. Once you are truly hooked you will zoom through 6 seasons. You might need some sick time, TV dinners and a bucket to pee in, no lie.

    2. The front load washer with sensor? it locks, senses your load, fills and unlocks incase you need to add anything. Sarah and I had one and it was great!

    3. Manda is no longer breastfeeding! She got the stomach flu :-( and although Oliver was upset, she refused to nurse him because she was worried he would get sick too. 2 days and he's off the boob! I am not suggesting you get sick but it is further proof that things happen naturally when it is time.

  2. I think the way you are watching Lost is the best way to do it. Waiting between each season gets so confusing, at least for someone like me who tends to forget, well, everything. I am back to being confused watching it!!

    And oh, the Wiggles. Lovin' you a little Big Red Car, are you? Try Fresh Beat Band when he gets a little older too. Those songs are catchy. :)
