So far the new role of routine in the Braun household has been beneficial and not even too boring! Basically, the biggest change so far has been trying to keep on a fairly consistent meal schedule, including snack-times and then having a set bed-time. Loving the extra time in the evenings now. And just recently I've been able to stay ahead of my dishes and am now enjoying a clean kitchen! I've enjoyed 8 consecutive days of exercise. Today may be my first miss. Today was a bit of an off day, but I got back on track. I could probably still try my work-out upstairs without the DVD (Rod's doing a shoot right now). But I'm here blogging. Also trying to myself to bed in the 10:00 range. Nights with Rachel have been far too active for my liking. Last night I was vowing to "cut her off". I'm devising a plan to also wean her off picking her up at night. But alas, the plans aren't always quite as easy to execute when it comes down to it. 'Cuz breastfeeding is about the quickest way to get a baby back to sleep!
Jacob has been very emotional lately. Really reacting strongly to Rachel encroaching on his territory or if things aren't just so. Not all the time, but more frequently. Just not being very easy-going. Don't know whether to chalk it up to having a cold, needing a nap, the weather, his diet, the stage he's in or what. He's always been a very sensitive and spirited guy, but usually pretty happy.
Well, gotta go!
