The above photo is of our oldest son having more fun with Crayola Tints on January 22nd, 2006. (Click here to see larger, clearer version on Flickr.)
Just wanted to welcome SJ to the 'dark side' of the Two Under Two Club. Looks like the turkey-timer 'bout done popped out! Let the baby-watch '06 commence... (Thanks to Y for the heads-up!)
Exhaustion doesn't even begin to describe my week. We just thought our youngest was working on his fourth tooth in three weeks. Then today as I was doing the daily toofer-feel, I discovered that while #4 is still trying to break through on the bottom, #5 completely came in on the top (out of the blue) overnight. The kid just turned SEVEN MONTHS OLD last week, people. Five teeth? Five? Between that, and the recent-crawling, and the huge growth spurt that literally upped him a diaper and clothing size overnight I think he's trying to catch up to his older brother in the span of a month.
Well it's killing his father and me. He doesn't sleep well to begin with, and Hyland's Teething Tablets, Infant Motrin, and Infant Tylenol would be better used on the dog right now...who somehow manages to thrash and wake us up in the rare instances the baby doesn't...
Ironically I had an appointment with my internist this morning to discuss my lack of sleep and my body's middle finger to it. But since it was an hour's drive each way, I'd literally had no sleep, and daddy couldn't get off work to help juggle the l'il hellions...well, I had to postpone it. Now I get to wait 'til the end of February for any hope of relief. I've been swigging Mountain Dew Amp like it's going out of style today.
You just think finals-week in college is as bad as it gets. After you have children, you quickly find out that exam lasts EIGHTEEN YEARS.
The only good side to all of this is that Todd says the sleep-deprivation is making me loopy, therefore funny. Kind of like getting my drunk on. But not.
