I am extremely exhausted this week and it's only Thursday. Melody had a rough night last night. Or I should say that I had a rough night. :-) Normally, she will sleep for 5-6 hours after her midnight bottle, but she was wide awake and crying last night. She cried off and on until 7:30am. She just couldn't get into a deep sleep, even with diaper changes and feedings throughout the night. After her 7:30am feeding, she fell asleep and I passed out, too. She is lucky that I think she is so cute!
A lot of you have commented on the fact that I still have time to knit while taking care of an infant. Let me tell you that knitting is what is keeping me sane! I would go crazy if I didn't have something creative to do while looking after a crying baby and two dogs all day. I think she has hit her peak on being fussy and crying these days. I have read everything I could find and the books and internet say that it will get better by 3-4 months. I hope I make it that long.
I have lot of projects that just needs ends woven in and minor seaming and they will be done. But for this week, all I have to show is this:A Mickey Mouse Washcloth for Melody's bath time. I used the leftover cotton yarn from knitting the Transformers washcloth for DH. So, one ball of Peaches & Cream will yield both washcloths. The Transformers washcloth is a lot bigger than the Mouse one.
