We decided to take advantage of the long weekend and packed up the car and headed to the family cottage. Miss Marley had an uncharacteristic screaming and whining fit so Mommy had to hang out in the back seat for the first hour of the drive. We played peek-a-boo and I even gave her my cell phone to play with because we all know there is nothing worse than an unhappy baby on a long car ride.
Once she finally fell asleep it was smooth sailing and we made it to the cottage in record time!
We had amazing weather, both Sunday and Monday were very hot and sunny. To help keep cool I pulled out a inflatable kiddie pool, filled it 1/4 of the way with water and beach toys and plopped Marley in. Success, she couldn’t have been happier. Best of all: Mommy got to hang out in the sun!
My sister, a few friends and I went to the local concert hall and checked out Xavier Rudd and Justin Nozuka. It was one of the best concerts I have been to in a while, very chill, cool atmosphere and extremely talented artists.
I’m also going to mention the fact that Marley did.not.sleep.all.weekend.
Ok, a bit of an exaggeration, but in all honesty, Marley is a fantastic sleeper and has been since she was 4 weeks old. I’m talking 12-13 hours a night.
Not this weekend. She would have a decent stretch from 7-11 then it was awake every hour, stirring, restless. Shoot me now. She was not herself, more clingy, whiny, needy and sleepless. I’m going to chalk it up to the fact that she was in a different environment and off her schedule. Oh yah, and she got 2 MORE TEETH. Ya. That brings the tooth total to 7.
She is back to normal and sleeping like a champ again, so all is ok on that front.
I know I have been slacking, I haven’t posted 8 month stats or pictures, it’s been crazy busy. I promise to get it done this week!
I’m also going to throw this out there: if you cloth diaper do you notice it’s like an obsession? I swear I spend all of my time looking on ebay, craigslist, kijiji, diaper swapper etc for deals and new info. It’s not like I already have more than enough for right now, but there are SO many cute and affordable options out there if you are willing to look for them. Am I alone in this?
