And Then We Get Disconnected

Did I mention yesterday how easy it is to get disconnected again? Apparently all it takes is a little adult crankiness, a little fussing from the baby and some miscommunication. I won't get into the details. But if I had to be brutally honest with myself (and you), it was probably 85% my fault. That adult crankiness I mentioned? Me.

Then I had a hard time putting the Pumpkin down for bed. By the time I was done, I was tired and even more cranky, so Londo and I didn't talk. This morning, we should have talked, but we didn't. The cleaning lady comes today, so we were busy picking up our crap so she can actually clean our floors.

This evening, I leave to go out of town for the weekend without husband or even baby!!! So either we will have to find time to talk while watching the baby and packing, or we both will let it go and realize that it really was nothing. I think this weekend away will be good for me, and therefore us, even though I'll miss them both so very much.

Sometimes you need a weekend away - have a great time!

YOu know when things are good with us I try not to talk about it too much, or even think about it too much as I know I will mozz myself ( Oh, I hope that's regular English and not Aussie slang)and everything will go belly-up, or worse I will be in one of my 'oh, I am so HAPPY right now' states, and then do something like side swipe the car - this I did do a while back. Happens e.ver.y.time.

We're one of those couples that gets along better the more we're around each other. Long car trips we get along great. Weeks where we're both working a lot we're at each other's throats.

Relationships are all ups and downs. If it was all wonderful I would worry more.

hope things have cleared up...and the weekend should help with wanting to forget whatever-it-was. ;)
Ha, connect and then disconnect! No that really sucks. Hopefully the weekend away will snap it all into focus, you miss eachother and let the other stuff just slide away.

some mornings I lay in bed and fantasize about a weekend away, a night away, 8 hours alone in bed. How much might I miss them, and how good that would feel. Enjoy!

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
