This week has been rough for me. My dear cute little Stella has defied the diaper industry and nature herself and has been blowing out of every diaper we put on her. We have tried Pampers, Huggies, different sizes, different ways of tightening it. Nothing can fight the force that dear Stella puts out. It isn't just Stella that is being affected. When the aforementioned blow-outs occur Stella is usually on something such as a seat, my bed, her bed, my lap, Seth's lap. So whatever object is holding her also gets attacked. I have changed my sheets now twice this week from this event. She goes through at least four outfits in a day. It is exhausting and disgusting. I can't imagine what life would be like with cloth diapers. I guess they are probably about as nasty as my current situation.
And the nap status...it is rough going. She naps but only for about 45 minutes. In fact it is amazing I have time to do this at all. But she is napping, and at the right times. Maybe she is not a long napper. I can't complain because I do get from 9 to 6 am without much fuss, but seriously, I need my days.
Because of Stella's lack of napping I have stopped eating during the day. This is really starting to take its toll on me. At first I felt famished all the time, but now I have hit that I don't need food during the day phase and I will sometimes go all day until Seth gets home to eat. This is not too smart because I am also breastfeeding and I really need to at least drink. By the end of the day I feel like I have a salt lick in my mouth. I am just dying of thirst. But hey look on the bright side, it is still better than Trimspa.
And for those of you (Kate, Nancy, and my mom) who got me sucked into this vampire serious...for shame. I am hooked. I have been reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. It reads like something Ann M Martin would write but I am still hooked. I am now on the second book and planning on continuing to the third. Apparently my cousin Bryant's wife Angela is one of the characters in the book so I have that excuse to read it. Still, read it so we can talk about how it lacks literary quality yet we are hooked.
