Miss W -->

   Wednesday, May 17, 2006  

It's been relatively quiet around the W household lately. Things are just going as they normally do. After our trip to the in-laws, we've had a chance to just stay home and relax. My parents came to visit and we all walked in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica. We raised around $1000 and had a really good time. We walked with one of the families who were beside us in the NICU and were surprised to see another family who shared our pod there as well.

Mother's Day was great -- we relaxed and just spent time with our son. We played and had a lot of fun. It was exactly what I wanted from the day -- more time mothering my son. The only good part was that when he was grumpy, Mr. W would distract him (something that is usually my job).

And, as usual, I sit down to post something and the lowercase decides happy playtime is over and he must be held. Seems to be a theme with him lately. He's become very clingy with me. I love it, but at the same time it makes life difficult as I can get NOTHING done. (And is it odd that for all his nap times he wakes up if I'm not holding him? To get his naps in, I have to lie down on the couch or my bed and hold him against me. Is this a habit we should break? Right now I'm loving it, but is it going to bite me in the ass hard at some point?)

Hey Miss W. I just read the little W is being clingy, have you tried a sling. See this post on my blog.


As a nanny I used it all the time to get things done like the dishes and laundry and even light dusting. I hope it works for you. I used it with newborns, up to 15 months and think it is a Godsend so I got one for my Sprog.
If you're loving it, don't stop. When you stop loving it, you'll phase it out. That's my two cents, for what it's worth. My 19 month old dives into his crib, cuddles up to his lovies and falls asleep all on his own and, as much as this makes my life easier, it also makes me wistful for the days when it had to be me he cuddled up to. They grow up so fast, all on their own, I don't see any need to rush things.
My 3-mo old only sleeps in a sling, while I'm walking. For what it's worth, I would stick with the lying down! At least you get to rest.
I still nap with my bean. When he came home with reflux so bad his screams could shatter glass - it was a means of survival. We sat upright in a chair and held him pretty much all night. You can sleep sitting up in a chair, did you know that? Now he just likes to snuggle.

Somethimes I want to get up and get things done, but then I remind myself that he is my only one and this won't last long. When I remember that this is my one shot to snuggle with my baby, I forget the things that need to be done.

I also agree with the statement that when you don't love it you will phase it out. I have found that to be very true. So glad you had a wonderful mother's day!
