Grace is asleep and Nolan is watching an annoying show on TV, so I actually have a free second!
Grace has been to 2 check-ups at the doctor. Her last visit was Thursday. She was up to 7 lbs, 10 ozs, and 20 inches long. She loves to eat. She is about 35% for weight, and 50% for height.
Nolan has started noticing Grace more now. He is usually pretty good around her. He has had a few times when he would be playing by himself perfectly happy until he saw me with Grace in my arms. Then he would turn into a jealous, whiney, 2-year-old. He rarely does that and it's just for a few seconds - it usually happens right around nap time. From 10-11am is a very hard time. Nolan's tired and doesn't want to take a nap, I'm tired and am very ready for a nap, and Grace will want to eat and have awake time. She doesn't know that when Nolan goes to sleep, everyone is supposed to go to sleep.
I didn't know that everyday I would have to decide if I want a shower, to clean the house, or take a nap during Nolan's nap. The shower usually loses. The nap usually wins. The house gets cleaned after Nolan goes to bed at night - if I can stay awake past 8 pm.
Grace likes doing this thing were she'll eat a full 4 ozs then cry for an hour becuase her belly hurts. That usually happens right after Nolan goes to sleep. I'll rock her and burp her and beg her to go to sleep so I can go to sleep.
Nolan has started his 2's. He is really trying to push us. He will start to do something he knows he's not suppose to do. He will look at us and say "no, no" and smile and do it anyway. I really don't know what to do when his like that, especially since right now all I want to do is curl up on the couch and take a nice long nap.
Grace is up. Time for me to go back to mom-duty.
