this is the week in which leon began grabbing everything and anything. toys, my face, hair (ouch), clothing, his own hair (double ouch). he is also practicing rolling from his back to his side, with a little help from us. three nights ago he decided to go to bed at 8.30 pm, sleep until 10.30, then back to bed until 2.30 am, and then at 5.30 am, he's up and ready for the new day. although he still isn't sleeping more than 5 hours at a time, if even that, this is wonderful news for me, the dissertation writer.
basically we get up at 8am. bath time before lunch, maybe a 30 minute nap if we're lucky, and then dinner at 6pm. sometimes we go to the park (he sleeps in the stroller), sometimes we have la leche league or a grocery store run, but mainly i spend my days amusing leon. if i even look away, he starts shrieking. i still feed him at least every two hours until 8pm, but it's more like once an hour. after leon falls asleep, i try to write until midnight.
so far i've written two pages this week. my new goal is to have 5 pages every week this month.
