Baby Deacon is growing so fast. He now can stay happily alert for two hours! Grandmotherhood this time around is so much easier! Kate is so much more confident (and patient) and is cherishing each minute. I usually have to ASK to hold the baby! She appreciates me entertaining Braeden so she can nap whenever Deacon naps. (I still remember the sleep deprivation).
For the past three weeks, the little family unit shared the king bed and I had the queen, while Braeden had an air bed on the floor next to me. This morning the new split mattresses for the king bed arrived. Braeden and I are taking over the king bed!! It's now separately adjustable, head and foot. With automatic settings for reading and zero gravity!! Anyway, I need to sleep on the mattress for a week or two to be sure they are keepers. (devious way to get my space back?)
I try to get up an hour before Mr. B, but this morning the mattresses arrived before 8am. B is laying on the couch watching Despicable Me (he's SOOO excited to watch TV during the day!) so I can enjoy my coffee.
And then we will make pancakes!
