I keep thinking I’ll try to get in a post about something not related to babies, but what are the odds of that happening, really? It’s the middle of winter, so it’s not like I’d be getting out and about much even if M weren’t so little. It’s nice to have M taking a few naps in her swing these days, though. I might get a chance to work on some projects once I’m feeling a bit better — like making a new cushion for the swing!
My mom has been here since yesterday afternoon, helping out with M, which makes a huge difference. I’ve been able to relax a little during the day, and she even took care of M overnight. That would have been amazing, except that I still woke up half a dozen times, feeling feverish. At least I didn’t also have to wake up when M did! M still seems to be uninfected, thank goodness. She took a nice long nap in bed this morning (an hour and forty minutes! — that first nap is always the best one) and has been busy on her new play mat today. I bought her this one, by the same company that made her mobile (Tiny Love). There are so many to choose from, but I thought it was cute than the pad of this one is a little pond — I can imagine M using it in her make-believe play when she gets older. It’s already a hit!
