Jonah had a sleepy day today. Long naps, and we got him in bed by 9:45... a new record! We'll see if he stays asleep. It's Matt's night to get up with him tonight. Actually, we both get up, but it's Matt's night to stay up with him. The person who gets to go back to bed gets up and makes the bottle, while the other quickly gets Jonah (to prevent face-rubbing), changes his diaper, and does the feeding. It's also the go-back-to-bedder's job to change out Jonah's bedding (he's usually either peed out of his diaper or has blood/drainage on the pillow case we put over the sheet). It's a little more complicated than "normal" alternating night schedules, but it works for us, and we get a little more sleep that way.
Two days on the avocado, and so far, it's a no-go. I can't blame him though. I think it's pretty gross myself. But it's a really cool color, and I bet it would make his poop look really neat. Too bad he's not interested. I'm always looking for something to make diaper changing a little more exciting. (I babysat a little girl in high school who liked to eat a lot of fruit loops, and let's just say her technicolor poop was the highlight of my day. Literally.) Sweet potatoes are up next, and then apples. I don't know why I'm so excited about making his baby food. Maybe since I didn't get to nurse and he's off breast milk now, it just makes me feel like I'm "providing" something for him. I know that's not really rational, but all that baking, peeling, and food processing give my stay-at-home self a little more purpose.
I even made homemade salsa. That's right. I'm domestic. You know you like it. (I owe all of my pureeing success to the Magic Bullet. Worth. Every. Penny.)
Here are some pictures I took of Jonah today right after dressing change.
(Thus all the Aquaphor. Please excuse his greasiness.)
