My day so far: 3:30am: A wakes up 4am: DD1 falls out of bed and cries for half an hour 5am: A wakes up again 515am: animals scream for ME to feed them (they don't know how to wake the still sleeping H apparently) 530am: I go feed neighbor's dog..she has peed everywhere. Clean that up. 545am: come home, cat has puked all over living room. H wakes up briefly to say he was going to feed the animals (thanks H, but I did that half an hour ago). H goes back to bed. 6am: dd1 wakes up an hour early for the 3rd day in a row. (H is still sleeping)
Yup, must be Mother's Day, the day when mom must do EVERYTHING! Lol. I hope you all have a wonderful day with your babies!
L was so fussy last night, and wanted to eat every 2 hours and had the loudest farts ever. Poor dude has a gas issue. I'm supposed to cut back on dairy to see if that helps, or else we are going to do gas drops.
Going to give him a bath and get the house ready for my Mom and MIL to come over for cocktails

Happy Mother's Day! We're showering then eating breakfast at the hotel. Then we head to the ILs so H can get ready with the groomsmen and his brother. I don't know what I'll do all day - maybe STBSIL1 will want to go somewhere. The wedding is at 4 so we have all day basically.
T is winning Mother's Day for me so far! I was so tired last night so I went to bed last night at 9. He gave me 5 hours and 45 minutes of sleep straight (he slept for 6+); then 3 and half; and is still snoozing away so I am enjoying time to myself before getting up! It's not 9 hours like . got but this is a first for him!

We're back on the road! The kids did surprisingly well yesterday. The toddler was practically an angel. We had to stop a couple times for B but he was pretty good overall as well.
We did learn though that he will on take breastmilk really warm from a bottle. Tried to give him 2 bottles that had just been "heating" by having it in my arm pit/cleavage and he wasn't having it. So I ended up manually pumping fresh milk anytime he needed to eat. The bad news was, I had to dump the breastmilk that I had pumped and kept in the cooler for the trip. 🙁 Anyways, today will just be freshly pumped milk again. When we're back home I'll have to test things with milk that's heated up to the temperature he likes it because I won't be able to give him freshly expressed milk when I go back to work in July.
We've got about 6 hours of driving ahead of us today and then we'll be there! This afternoon will just be spent relaxing and get we're doing dinner at Disney Springs for Mother's Day.
I don't want to bring the thread down or start a new thread, but I'm having a lot of feelings today. 2 years ago I was only 1 month out from my D&C at 20 weeks and Mother's Day had a dark cloud over it. Today I'm celebrating my rainbow, but I'm also thinking of our BMB's loss moms, and all loss moms, and those who have lost their own mommas.
Happy Mother's Day ladies, love on those little nuggets today and celebrate your lives and families today!
H got up with DS this morning and I slept in a little bit. He made breakfast, then I feed C and we played a little bit. He went down for a nap, and h got out and put together our hammock. I've spent like an hour just laying in the shade.
Hoping the good morning isn't cursed with a fussy baby later. (He was a hot mess last night) but for now, today's been a good day.

I've had a nice lazy morning. I caught up on all my shows, ordered groceries, pump parts are soaking and my laundry is going. Going for nap 2 for DD so I can get ready. My mom will be here with DS in about 45 minutes. We are going to lunch with my brother and his wife. I need to deliver cards to mil and smil at some point.

@justinslovo DD doesn't seem to be able to make it past 50 min naps on her own either. I think that's 1 sleep cycle. I usually end up picking her up and holding/nursing her to extend the nap. Since she didn't use to nap on her own at all, I'm hoping this is a developmental thing that will change in its own time. She does it at night for long stretches, so I know it's possible.

I let DD get too tired while I was helping the guys get ready, and she's just now sleeping when we leave in half an hour. I'm hoping she wakes herself up in 20 min so I can change and dress her quickly without a lot of tears. But I also hope she sleeps because she needs the rest.
mosdub I also feel a bit "funky." I'm so happy to be celebrating my rainbow, but remembered how rough this day was the last 2 years. Just the sadness that comes with wanting to be a mom so bad, and having to celebrate everyone who already was. I can't bring myself to post a picture or anything bc my heart hurts for friends who are still waiting on their rainbow, or otherwise struggling.
