Weird nights over here. Leo was up at 3am again last night, this time happy and playful. We played with wooden blocks on the floor in his room until 4:15am, when he went down again. We woke him up at 6am to try to keep him on schedule. Oy. A friend sent me a link to thewonderweeks.com, suggesting that Leo is probably going through a developmental spurt and it’s messing with his sleep. From the reading I’ve done on the site (and Dave and I’s intuition) we’d say it’s right. Leo definitely wasn’t hungry last night or teething… just awake and bored. We’re hoping this spurt doesn’t last too long!
Yesterday we made a trip to Walmart to pick up a few things. On the way there Dave treated me to a very-belated-birthday present (he’d intended to do it around my birthday but it kept not working out): a car wash! I LOVE going through car washes. So for $5 we got our Honda all clean.
Initially I was looking at Dave for the picture, but I got distracted by the giant brushes.
I also signed up for another race yesterday – the Elkhart County 4H Parade 5K! Leo and I are going to run it together. The run is the beginning of the parade, so Dave and I are planning on decorating the stroller a little bit to make it more festive. The race is also later in the day, when it’s hot, so it will be purely for fun and not time.
Have you signed up for any races lately?
Any advice for handling way-too-awake babies in the middle of the night?
