Last night Hayden only woke up twice for feedings and went about four hours from the start of one feeding to the start of the next. This was like a holiday for me, because the most he has done before was three hours from the start of one to the start of the other, and depending on the length of the feedings that leaves about one to one and a half hours of sleep at a time. I hope this is the start of more restful nights for both of us!
As John mentioned, Nanny Mad left yesterday. We were all very sad to see her go. It was a really good visit. There were a few incidents that were quite funny — the funniest one being when Hayden had a diaper blow-out that went up his back, out his diaper, and onto Nanny Mad’s white trousers! It took a couple of moments for us to realize it had gone on her. We all heard a big noise, then she was saying how warm his bottom was, then I saw the spillage. No wonder her lap was so warm! We laughed about that one for a long time. It’s a good thing she has such a good sense of humor!
Rich and Anita were also in town last week for work, so we got to spend some time with them. In fact, Anita took Thursday off to spend the day with us which was really nice. It was so great to see them, and we’re really glad they got to meet Hayden. Rich even got to feed Hayden!
Other notable events of late: Jude caught a baby mole and Lucy caught a squirrel. Madeline and Deirdre were really sad about the squirrel, but John and I didn’t really feel sorry for it. The squirrels around here completely taunt the pets. Seriously, they ask for it. Trust me, I’m a vegetarian. I wouldn’t take the side of the hunter, except for the fact that I have spent many hours over the course of our beautiful and dry summer watching the squirrels interact with the dogs (including Macy) and cats. The squirrels beg of them: CATCH ME IF YOU CAN!
