This and That

I don't really have one particular topic for today. Feeling a bit tired from a night of not feeding Aaron and a day of entertaining him. Yes, I wake up feeling super when I've fed him 4 times overnight but after a night of not feeding, I could hardly drag myself out of bed this morning. And this was after I slept in an additional hour. I'm not ready to fully wean Aaron yet but I decided to give night weaning a try. Hopefully, this will help him sleep through. The first few nights were relatively easy but last night was horrible. It would have been so much easier to just feed him and he would have fallen back to sleep in a couple of minutes but I stuck it out. It took him close to two hours to get back to sleep after waking up at around 1.30am.

One of my neighbors came over today to tell me that her sister has a whole bookshelf of English novels that I could borrow. The sister used to be an English teacher but had a stroke several years ago and spends most of her time in bed now. I didn't get to meet this lady but a whole stack of books were brought out of her room for me. I was a little disappointed to see that they were all Mills and Boon romance novels. Not exactly my type of read but I'll give it ago. I picked the three with the less 'dramatic' covers. It will be my first time reading any sort of romance novel, except The Thorn Birds. But I'm not sure if that one is in the same category as these.

My bites have almost stopped itching. Now I'm left with two polka dotted legs. I hope these marks fade soon. I can feel people looking at my legs (for obviously the wrong reason) when I walk past, especially in the gym.

Vitamin E might help for the scars on your legs. Enjoy the novels and I hope the nights get easier with your little one! See you later - Kellan

Amanda,
On the night weaning, you are probably not the best person to tend to Aaron when he wakes expecting a feed. Your Hubby will hate me for this advice.
