More sleep loss

Posted by lena on June 18th, 2008 filed in baby news

I think that sleep deprivation is really beginning to affect Adam and I in subtle and not so subtle ways.  For example, Ilya had the strangest poop the other day (yes, I have become one of those mothers that can talk endlessly about her daughter’s poop).  It was crystallized.  Adam was changing her and rather than think “oh weird, Ilya has a strange poop” he actually asks me if I salted the baby’s butt.  Why yes, I find that a little salt goes a long way to those custard poop delights.  OK, that was a little gross – but hey I haven’t slept more than three hours in a row in weeks.

We have our one month appointment with Dr. Christina today.  I swear, Ilya has gained about 10 pounds since the last time we saw her.  My back is still sore from carrying her around all day yesterday.  Anna and I are going to have a picnic in the park and walk around Greenlake before the appointment.  You might have realized that I am doing a lot of walking.  This is because I have realized that Ilya is either perfectly happy when I am walking with her in front of me or she is sleeping.  Either way its great.  I have never been so motivated to exercise.
