Much to do about nothing

We have all just been recovering from Christmas. I finally opened up the last two toys that the kids received for Christmas today. Yes, it's taken me that long.. I swear whoever packages toys must not have kids. That's all I'm saying.

Saturday evening Jon Kent and Zoey spent the night with my parents. Kent, Nate and myself all went out and did a little shopping with the gift cards we received. I got some new clothes and Kent bought himself a XBOX 360. When we got home it was past time for Nathan's bath (usually at 8pm) so I threw him in the bath really quick and then fed him. After he was done nursing I could tell he wasn't tired so I let him play in the floor while Kent was messing around with the XBOX. Finally, around 10pm (late I know) I put him to bed and he was out. The child didn't wake up until 4:10am. 6 hours people, SIX HOURS! It was like a late Christmas miracle. I didn't really mention it to anyone for fear of having to learn my latest lesson all over again. And I most certainly wasn't going to blog about it. It was just going to bask in the 6 complete hours of sleep that was had by all.

Then last night.. wait for it.. up every 2-3 hours. Yep, heeeeeeeee's baaaaaaaaaack. At least it was for a quick nurse and back down.

I will say this.. in the last 3 or 4 days he has been such a happier baby. I think the probiotics are really working and doing wonders for his belly. I'll probably continue to do that with him even after we are done with the antibiotics.. which today is the last day for that.


Can you believe that there are only 2 more days of 2008? Crazy. I am going to go dig through my old journal and see what my New Year's resolutions were for last year. Should be fun seeing if I kept to them.

Well, I'm gone. 2 out of my 3 are sleeping.. can you guess which one isn't?

LOL...he looks so rotten in that photo. :)

And yes, definitely keep Nathan on the probiotics following antibiotics. If you can afford to do so, I'd keep him on them forever.

My entire family takes them's just good for the entire digestive system. Aloe juice is great too...very soothing. And digestive enzymes. :)
