Sleep training has commenced! What a week and a half of staring at a baby monitor and holding our breath any time the baby shifts after we’re convinced he fell asleep. It’s a whole new animal to tackle for us first time parents. I would say it has started off strong and we’re not going backwards but there are adjustments we seem to be making. Is putting him to bed earlier than later better? Is there any guarantee to him staying asleep for more than 4-5 hours? There’s no clear answer but we’re doing our best.
We’re also getting treated to more baby sounds and we could listen to them all day. All day!
How could you not when it’s so dang cute? I’m beginning to look ahead and wonder what it will be like once our little guy is running around, speaking without a filter. For one, I’m going to laugh anytime he asks a silly question or says something funny. I just won’t be able to help myself. He already seems inquisitive so I don’t know why that would stop once his little brain wants to know the answer to why about everything.
I don’t really have a topic for today’s post. Sometimes my mind just doesn’t focus in like I want it to. So this is going to be a mixture. Enjoy! (No, please come back!)
Here’s a funny story. My wife bought a salad mix from Trader Joe’s for dinner last week. There was a packet of what I thought was bacon bits and since she didn’t use it, I thought I would add bacon to my egg breakfast one day this week. I could just imagine those salty pork chicklets with each bite. How could I not treat myself?! Well, disappointment struck… It turns out that those were not bacon bits but dried apricots! Talk about a let down! Now I just want bacon…
Bummer news came when I found out Stranger Things Season 3 has been delayed until a 2019 Summer release. UGH! Really? Well that’s a kick in the shin. I might need to think of something fun to do in place of my season 2 re-watch. I’m open to suggestions. I could do a month of my favorite 80s flicks (all of which I grew up watching too many times). That might be 80s overload. I could also look at doing an episode by episode re-watch of another show. I’d love to devote several weeks to my favorite show, “Lost”, but that could require some major dedication. Still…it’s an intriguing option.
Other than counting down the days until our high temperatures get back down into the 90s, life goes on. Writing continues. I am working on the Shoals to the Hallowed short story for the August Newsletter and its turning into something quite fun to write and explore. My goal is to still update my website. No target date as of yet but I’ll keep you all updated.
Make sure to sign up for my newsletter on my website too. Three free newsletters which includes news, book reviews, and the Shoals to the Hallowed short story. Don’t shy away from showing your support. It means a lot and I pour quite a bit of time into this whole adventure.
(Psst…get in close. No, too close. Okay, there. Yeah, I’m going to do a Lost Season 1 re-watch. So get your Apollo bars ready, Losties, because we’re got to go back!)
