Well, T Rex's virus seems to be subsiding. He is itching less but also sleeping less. He's averaging only 8 hours of sleep a night when he usually gets 10 - 11. And he's been cutting his naps short. Argh.
What does this mean? Cranky T Rex and grump T Rex Parents with bags under their eyes!
Have I ever mentioned that having kids ages a person rapidly? Seriously, it does, but you know, it is TOTALLY worth it. I know some day we will feel all nostralgic for these days so I'm just going to relish every moment of it!
Luckily, my hubby's been getting up at the wee hour of 5 am to entertain the little guy. It really is hard to be too grumpy with him when he gives out kisses so liberally at such an early hour. And he still has the sweetest breath, even in the morning!
Overall, I think he is on the mend. And I am keeping up with school. That's good news.
And there's a three day weekend with T Rex Dad just around the corner. My mom is going to come on Friday to watch T Rex so we can go to a double movie feature. I've been starved for entertainment. I've been dying to see Transformers 2. And we're going to the IMAX to see it, so I am doubly excited!
Oh, I did pull together an amazing baby gift box for a friend of mine. I have seven friends, yes, seven, who are all having babies within two months of each other. Whew - that's a lot of sewing for me. Maybe I should not have committed to that "homemade gifts only" policy for this year. But the box turned out amazing and since she has not received it yet, I cannot post a photo. I will shortly. All I can say, is if you're needing any assistance in the fertility department, I can get you some of our local water. There has to be something in it!
The winner of June's toddler backpack giveaway is Kim over at "The Child" - her little one is nearly the same age as T Rex. He is so charming and she always has such excellent messages behind her postings. I highly recommend checking out her blog.
Since I have SO many baby gift boxes (you'll see what I mean by boxes when I post the photo), I've decided to skip making something for July and instead give away one of my most FAVORITE new indulgences - Goat Milk Soap. I am totally addicted - especially to the oatmeal honey and cucumber melon. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and the scents are amazing. Check out the link and make note of what kind you think you'd like because the winner of July's giveaway will receive her choice scent.
Giveaway rules are the same - entries are counted as one comment per blog posting per blog either T Rex Mom and Dad Tales or T Rex Tales. The entries are doubled at the end for followers.
(You'll notice my postings are getting fewer but longer - that's probably a trend since I've started school. Be well and if I don't write before the holiday have a great Independence Day for all my American readers out there! And don't forget to put out your flag.)
