Quiet

I know I've been quiet this week. I've been so tired. I'm babysitting two babies right now, a 3 month old and a 2 month old. It really wears me out. I am anxious to be done with it. The 3 month old, which I admit is my favorite...he's just the sweetest little guy. He is just happy to be alive. The 2 month old, well um I'm not so sure he's happy to be here, even if he is discovering he can smile..he just screams/cries A LOT. He cries less for me than he does for his momma...but whew! Let me tell you when it's not your child that's crying and crying and change his diaper, feed him, hold him, sing to him, talk to him, lay him down, don't touch him, put him in another position, put the pacifier in there to hopefully quiet him down just a little, replace the pacifier, beg your oldest son to replace the pacifier because you've been um..holding it ;) for the last 2 hrs and just can't anymore, wash your hands, run into the living room, replace the pacifier, pick him up...he finally falls asleep. Oh and then the other one is awake, barely makes a noise, just enough to let you  know "I'm hungry" so you change his diaper, heat up his bottle, feed him, get him back to sleep after you played with him for a bit...the other one is waking up. By the time their mommies arrive...I'm exhausted, oh and lets not forget I need to pay attention to my own children during this time, feed them breakfast, lunch, a snack in the morning and afternoon, try for some cuddle time with each of them, get them down for a nap, oh....well let me tell you I'm tired. Oh yeah and I have insomnia so it's not like I'm getting a good nights sleep to deal with this! Yippee!

 

I've not really had a lot to write about. I have tomorrow/Friday off! Saturday I'm watching 2 mo old all day and night...his mom has duty. Then I'll have Sunday and Monday off (it's a 4 day weekend). Oh tonight I have 3 month old all night. His mom told me he's sleeping through the night though! Yeah!

God Bless

Sounds way too exhausting!  Just like having twins!  Whew!  I hope you get some rest soon.

Christy; you take care of yourself. Having one newborn is hard; having two around has got to be so exhausting. That 2 month old sounds like a "high maintenance" baby as we call them in the nursery. Don't get run down.

betty

wow I dont know how you do it girl lol. i am probably the worst friend out there.. i cant stand watching other peoples children. I had no problems watching them when we first moved here but I think it all came to an end when it started be constantly and it interferred with my family life... hmm dunno.. more power to ya! Sorry to hear about the cranky baby, maybe he will learn to quiet down soon... let him discover his toes!! lol that always made my kids happy... (i dunno.. its way to early for me to be commenting on these things.. there should be a warning of some sort) lol
