||My mood while writing this blog:|
Hello Ladies! Sorry I have not written an update or blog in a while. Rhys is doing great- I don't know if I wrote but about his surgery in my last blog, but it went great. Although he did get a fistula( an extra opening in the urthera, a very common complication of the surgery) which mean if it doesn't somehow close up on its own that at 1 year we will have to go back and he will have to have surgery again to fix it. More minor surgery but still have to go under. I am really working on " willing" the hole closed. Other than that he is great. He is pulling up on everything and can cruise a tiny bit from thing to thing if its close enough. I still think walking is a good few months away which is good. He has mastered ba,beh, ga,geh, ah-da, da-da( no meaning yet) and deh NO signs of mmm or mama yet. thats okay. We do a lot of activities together, tuesday is mommy and me yoga wednesday and saturday are gymboree and in between are visits with the grandparents, trips to the city to see friends and walks around our neighborhood9 mostly down to the river, if its nice) Our new house is grat, although alot to clean esp with an almost 8 month old crawling around screaming. He likes attention!
He has started sleeping throughthe night, but no matter how late we put him to bed, he wakes up at 5:30. It's so early. And I can see he is still tired. If I brought him into bed with us i'm sure he'd go back to sleep until 7 or 8, but I don't want to confuse him about sleeping in our bed. Here is my question. I feel like I never get a break from my little man and while I enjoy playing with him all day, I don't even get to pee without him trying to pull up onto my lap. My husband works a hard job about an hour 1/2 away from us he leaves at 7:30 am and gets back9 most days) around 7 30 at night. I know that he is tired, I know he just wants to relax on the couch, but he doesn't even offer to play with the baby. I am still on the floor having him crawl all over me. When I go to make dinner( most nights i make it before jed gets home so i'm caring for Rhys can cooking) but when he does get home early I ask him yo play with the baby and he just lays on the couch, so of course Rhys starts to fuss on the ground because he gets bored, so jed is like " oh he wants you". which might be true, but he has to learn to other people, like daddy. ANYWAY so now Rhys gets up at 5:30 am. Jed has to be up at 7 to get ready which is not too far away, so it would make sense to me that he got up at 5:30 and got Rhys and played a little so I could have a few minutes to my own in the am! But instead he just stays asleep in the bed so i'm with Rhys from 5:30 am til 9:30 when I put him to bed. And again-I love my son and spending time with him, but its just hard sometimes. I feel like Jed should take at least the morning or night after he gets home from work. I ven suggested doing every other day so he doesn't always have to get up at 5:30 am( which he said he wanted to do so he could work out anyway!!!) I dunno-I just feel he doesn't get he has to activly play with Rhys. He is a great dad and loves him more than words but I just don't know how to get him to be more active. well- thanks for reading this and I hope you and your babies are doing amazing!

- Wednesday, 16 Jun I think all Moms need breaks, even if it's just a short one every day. And I also think it's really important for our little ones to know that Daddy and Mommy are in the same role as far as prents go. So I say tomorrow morning when Rhys wakes up you lay him in with Dad, tell Dad that "he needs you" and go to another room to get some more sleep for a bit. :-) Ty was the same as Jed for a while and eventually I just started putting Logan there with him and took the dog for a walk or something. Now I don't even have to ask. I hope you find something that works for you!
