Mull-- What a wonderful, satisfying sounding spring morning! The cut irises and the banana bread? ahhh.... Sorry about Allison waking up Fiona. I have the exact same issue. Sammy has now gotten really good about not coming in to wake me and Tommy up until 7 (which I must say is a minor miracle). But at 7:01 he's there. Tommy will be dead asleep next to me (I almost always move him into bed at his 5:30/6 wake up) and Sammy will pick up his arms and wave them, or climb practically on top of him, etc, etc. I think sometimes he's been waiting a long time (he can wake up before 6) and by the time he wakes me up he's like some sort of wind up doll that is literally jumping off the floor.... totally worked up.
Grape-- So great to hear from you!! I'm glad the PT is helping. Yeah, the milestones.... she sounds totally fine. Do you have the "what to expect the first year" book? That one has a nice check list b/c it says what they will "probably" "might" "might even" be doing. Then you can feel really proud about any "might evens" you check off.... (I found the copy I had with Sammy, which is fun because I can see what he was doing at the same age). Like everyone says, babies do things at such different ages (the turning to a voice when they can't see it is something Tommy only sometimes does. Sometimes I feel like he gets his eyes so locked onto someone's eyes (like if he's looking at me and DH walks up and talks to him) that he almost physically can't tear them away, which then made me worry very slightly, but now he's starting to do the look to a voice thing sometimes). The variability gets even more extreme with some milestones like crawling, which some babies never do at all...
I laughed outloud at the thought of you up during the night fussing over Zoe as she's sleeping away... If you can believe it, even tho Tommy wakes me up THREE TIMES in the night I get up EXTRA to check on him. Then, in his sleep sac, I'll decide I can't tell for sure that he's breathing so I'll grab his little hand or something till he startles. How, honestly, will these poor children survive us? hee hee.
Country--- I can't believe your schedule. You are amazing. Really. And it sort of makes me gulp because poor Tommy's schedule is more like "get woken up by brother from dead sleep, maybe breast feed but maybe get put down while mommy yanks brother off computer where he's trying to google godzilla again, maybe go in swing and fall back asleep while breakfast cooked for brother, maybe get to take whole morning nap, maybe get yanked out of it to go to some crazy meeting with mommy..... "
Work is going pretty well. I feel mildly crazed while there, but only in the normal clinic with patient every 15 minutes way... my attacks of Total Baby Brain seem to be diminishing. I am not sure when I'm going to start my new job, but that is partly because it isn't at a new place, it is in the clinic where I am now. Same clinic with the residents I supervise, etc. I will just be going back to having my own HMO primary care panel, which I don't currently have. So, it will be more like a gradual ramp up of hours than going to a new place. Which is nice.
Jillian-- My tendency would be to get some footed pajamas that are warm enough and take her out of the sleep sac. Just so that if she rolls she can get herself back over again as easily as possible. Although I've never tried the sleep positioner Country suggests and it might be worth a try. If she's not so mobile that she scoots around and gets herself tangled up in it.
Mum-- Have fun in Denver!! So glad you got some sleep from the baby nurse.
AFM-- Tommy just woke up so will have to make this short. I have been feeling sort of crummy the last few days. Headache. My MIL has had a flu-ish sort of bug and I can't tell if I'm fighting it or if it is just fatigue or what. Funny how hard it is to tell lately, so baseline tired. Meanwhile, am taking Sammy for his reading testing with a psychologist and got kind of freaked out about it. But I'm glad we're doing it. Have a few more sessions of testing before she can tell us anything. Met with City Staff the other day about getting a conditional use permit for the new school site. Wow. Bureaucratic stuff like that always makes me feel like I'm going to scream.... but we are moving forward. Ahhh.... Oh, and a very very dear friend from college is coming to visit early next week which is really exciting!

Grape - how long does that mobile stay on. The one I have lasts a whopping 30 seconds. She loves it, but then gets upset when it stops. The mobile suggestion might be just what she needs to wear herself out and nap.
I think I'll try the footed pjs tonight. I'm nervous about a positioner because she is such a scooter right now. I think she'd figure out how to launch herself partway over it and then just get really mad at mama. She seems to love figuring out her lower body, she refuses to be held unless she can stand on our laps.
