Another Jamie layout in this month's For Keeps. I allowed myself to go a bit crazy with the ribbon on this one - I haven't been using ribbon so much lately, so it was nice to go a bit wild here. No sappy journaling on this one ;), just a poem I found which I thought was really cute.
I have been flat out with Jamie this last 10 days or so. He has cut two more teeth - he has six now (and he's only seven months old!).
He's also decided that he doesn't want to sleep anymore. This happened overnight. We went from me simply tucking him in his bed, giving him his little bear (Popcorn), kissing him and walking out the door, to just pure screaming. At first I thought it was the teeth. But it's been going on for two weeks now. He just will not sleep. Unless it's on me, in the car or, today, in the pram when we went for a walk around the block. What's happened? It's twisting me inside out.
My days evaporate in a blur of trying to calm a screaming baby. If I give up and let him stay up (which I do a lot), then I have to deal with an extremely grumpy baby all day.
He has three naps a day still and only ever sleeps for 40 minutes at a time (occasionally he will go for an hour and a half - my goodness, do I get a lot done then!), so I really am feeling the strain. It feels like my day is one big battle with him.
I so hope that it's just a stage.
And I have a cold, which isn't helping.
OK, that's my whinge for today. Sorry.
