It has been awhile since I posted, but things have just been a bit crazy. Nothing special really, my life is as uneventful as ever, but I suspect Max is teething, has developed RLS (restless leg syndrome, and I am kidding, I just watch too much TV), or hates me because he is not sleeping for more than 30-40 minutes at a time. (Break to get him from his crib, he has been down only 20 minutes) He used to sleep through the night and take these 2 hour afternoon naps, but hasn't for days and I am exhausted and my house looks really bad because he doesn't stay in an exersaucer/bouncy seat/on the floor/etc. for more than 5 minutes without screaming. I am sure you are thinking "she has spoiled him, he is addicted to being held", and first of all, I don't believe that is possible, but second he actually spends a lot of time crying because I can't hold him as much as I did Hailey. He is on Prevacid for reflux and it helps, but maybe it is still not enough and he is in pain still, I don't know. I seem to remember Hailey going through this around 5 months because she started rolling and moving, so I know that it will pass, it is just that while I am going through it is STINKS. I will probably sleep train him soon, but I gotta wait until after our vacation so I don't mess it up.
On a happier note, potty training for Hailey is going really well. She is completely what I call naked butt trained. We have a potty in the living room and she sits on it when she needs to go. I am so impressed and excited because it seemed like the scariest thing ever and we had some early issues, but I really think by the end of May she will be totally trained. If we really concentrated on it I think we could have it done this week, but I am in no rush. Yesterday I was making dinner and we have a bathroom off the kitchen and I put the potty seat on the real potty and showed her, hoping that she would use it there too, and she did twice! The best is that after dinner I forgot to bring it back into the living room and she stopped in the middle of playing to tell me that she had to potty. YEAH! I have been trying to get some pics of her on the potty, but she is so quick and I always forget :) I will try to post some soon.
So that is what the Petersons are up to....fascinating stuff huh :)
