Making Christmas progress

Started blog post last night...

With Christmas only 8 days away and practically no shopping done, I was starting to panic. I have been house bound for 2 days due to snow and baby, but today I decided I must get out of the house and do some shopping. Todd, Anthony and I headed to town and got some very productive shopping done. Were almost done, tomorrow I will do the rest by myself while Todd goes to Chicago for work something or other. It will be the first time I go anywhere by myself with the baby. I hope it goes as well as it did today.

Attempting to finish post now, (typed with one hand, which I'm getting rather quick at)

Apparently I don't get good nights and good days. Only one or the other. And since yesterday was such a good day for Anthony while we shopped, I should have known the night would be a rough one. He was awake from about 3:30 till 8am, unless I was rocking him (standing up, sitting in the chair wouldn't suffice). He would fall asleep in my arms, and as soon as I layed him back in his bassinet, he cried. We also had to change his clothes 2 times during the night.
So now it's noon and were just getting going this morning, still planning on getting out and doing the last of my Christmas shopping. Although we probably wont be ready to leave the house for another couple hours with getting both of us dressed and fed. I'm not sure if I want Anthony to be a good baby or not today. Because I could really use a good nights sleep tonight. Although I also really need to get my shopping done.
I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Good luck on shopping today. I think he has trained mom and dad quite well.

Did anyone give you a back pack that you can wear on the front? That seemed to work really well for me when Maddy insisted that I stand up with her. Of course, she never needed much in the night though. She was the perfect baby when it came to sleeping. She was sleeping through the night by the time she was a month old. For awhile, I had to set the alarm clock so I could wake her up to nurse. One of the nurses at the hospital told me that it was very important that she not go more the 4-5 hours between feedings.

Have fun shopping today. I'm curious to hear all about your adventures in town without Todd.

If you are buying a baby carrier, get the Baby Bjorn (around $85) as they are the best to use.

I hope he gets easier so you can get some sleep.

Good luck with your shopping and sleeping. Maybe you can have your cake and eat it too? Hopeful thinking.
