The Result

Well, he woke up at 10:30, ate, played and chilled with me until around midnight. I did the usual nighttime routine and it worked perfectly. He woke up around 7:30. I still swaddle him every night with the aden and anais blanket Sarah sent when he was born. He is really starting to get to be too big and active to be swaddled, but I know it helps him sleep. The breastfeeding has almost completely tapered off since my last bout of mastitis. I am possibly the worst milk producer ever and now it is even more pathetic. I am able to pump about 2.5 ounces a day and breastfeed in the early morning and at night before James falls asleep for about 15 minutes (on a good day). I need to start implementing a new bedtime routine soon because I know that the milk supply is not going to last much longer and I want something in place that is a fool-proof way to get James to fall asleep.

In other interesting news, my new nano arrived yesterday and Christian very kindly stayed up until 2 a.m. to load it up and get it ready. It is about the size of a pack of gum and is 8 gigs, bigger than our first computer. Unreal. It is, I think, the 5th ipod we have owned since 2004 - 5 ipods in 5 years, not a very good track record. Did I mention Christian lost his, the main one, somewhere between NOLA and Detroit. And, yeah, it was newish (purchased within the last year).

I am watching Twilight right now because Christian is chaperoning prom. It is entertaining, but I am not obsessed with Edward like every other 30 something lady who has been exposed to the books and movie. In fact, I don't find him appealing at all, he looks very pasty (which stands to reason since he is a vampire) and very young (which also stands to reason since he is supposed to be 17 years old), but I am enjoying the movie. I am curious though, what is it about the guy that turns old ladies into Mrs. Robinson.

I'm glad that James has started to develop more of a routine! I can't wait for that to happen over here! I can send you some milk if you want, my supply is neverending :)

I'm going to help shed light on the Edward Cullen phenomenon. You need to read the book...although the movie is good, it certainly doesn't represent Edward in all of his hot vampire glory properly. The movie skimps on a lot of Edward's personality and a lot of the build-up to how Edward and Bella's relationship progresses. I think most of us Mrs Robinsons fell in love with the character of Edward in the Twilight novel, not Robert Pattinson's version in the movie. Not sayin' that Pattinson isn't hot but I found him much more attractive in Harry Potter Goblet of Fire when he played Cedric Diggory. Which, by the way, if you have not read or watched the Harry Potter series, I highly recommend it....

Thanks for the advice with crying. It's good to know that it does stop. There's a light at the end of the tunnel! YAY!

Uh....what about your 40-something friends??? I agree with Robin - I read all 4 books b/f seeing the movie, which I think has added to the obsession. I'm trying to get over it....

I miss you!

Did Julie mention she dropped her last nano into a cup of coffee the day after she dropped her cellphone into a cup of coffee?

Christian, Julie must have forgot all about that, lol

I just had a good laugh at that, Thanks.
