Let Freedom Ring!


Yes, yes, yes, I know it’s Labor Day, not Memorial Day…but I’m not talking about the freedom to vote, speak or worship….I’m talking about the freedoms that really matter.

How about freedom from slime and stench? We’re not our of the diaper woods yet, but Amelia did pee in the potty again this morning. There’s light.

Victory #2 – after a solid five weeks of trying, Amelia finally succeeded in getting the pacifier in Siena’s mouth. Yes, in her mouth, silencing the baby…and yes, she can now do this without sticking it up Siena’s nose. For those of you who don’t have kids and need a little context, this development ranks up above “Amelia, can you get Daddy a beer?”. I don’t know exactly how this relates to freedom, but it feels liberating.

And, yes, the moment we’ve all been waiting for FREEDOM TO SLEEP!!!!!! Reiterating my earlier sentiments, Sleep at last! Sleep at last! Thanks God Almighty, we can sleep at last! . Siena slept for seven hours last night! That’s my girl!!!! We switched to a new fool-proof swaddling technique that she seems to love, and it’s made a world of difference…that, and she’s twelve pounds already might have something to do with it.
