YAY!!!! I am sooooo excited. I SLEPT! I SLEPT! Russ is taking paternity leave. He was home yesterday and he is home today. Then next week he will take 3 days off. What a life saver. I took the early shift with Kaiya since I couldn't sleep anyway. Then Russ took over. He had a meeting about Red Letters with our pastor which was awesome. Other than that he was home with ME. :0)
Yesterday I spent most of the day just watching my shows and hanging out with the girls while he did most of the leg work. My job was just to stay awake. LOL!! Sadly that was about the only job I could handle. I made it till 9:30ish and took 2 melatonin. I slept till about 6:30am! WOOHOO! I am a new woman. Well at least till nap time. Hee hee hee... I think I am on the right track though. I really think it will take another week or so for me to feel recovered from the jet lag and trip totally. That trip was wonderful but kicked my butt. Lots of work.
Yesterday was great though. Kaiya is SO amazing. She is HILARIOUS! Here are a couple of video clips of her "eating" her yogurt. It tends to look more like a bathing ritual. She is SUCH a messy eater. It is crazy!!! Kaitlyn was this dainty, neat little eater with hardly a crumb on her. This is way foreign to this mommy. Feeding herself is all new to Kaiya. 2 weeks ago when I met her her tongue still had that reflex that babies have to push everything out of their mouth. She could only eat a couple of grains of rice at a time without choking. Now she is shoveling down food like a champ. 2 weeks ago she was spastic in her arm movements and could rarely get the spoon in her mouth. Most of the food ended up on the floor. Seriously... Now it gets all over HER but most of it stays off the floor. HA HA! Anyway, the more sleep I get the more adorable this video gets. I am really so proud of her. She has made incredible progress already.
