Before I embrace the camera today, lets just take a peek at how funny this picture of Ruby and Keith is:
It's like she's saying, "Um, Mom, a little help here please?" And yes, my child is wearing "jeans" and a long sleeved onesie at the end of July. Welcome to Washington. Anyway...
My mom came over today, and I intended to have her take pictures of Ruby and I, but... she was sleeping most of the time! Mom was a little bit sad, but miss grouchy-pants needed that nap.
Things have been going a little bit better on the sleep front. Yesterday she actually slept IN HER CAR SEAT for an hour during baby class. I couldn't believe it. Then she slept from bedtime until, well, until about midnight because she'd busted her swaddle, but I was able to wrap her back up and she slept until 4:00 like normal. Then after that, she slept until just before 9:00. She woke up happy, just "talking" to herself in her crib until I came in to get her. Which took a little while, because I was dead.
No, not actually, but I was so.freaking.tired. See, Ruby is not the only one that hasn't been sleeping. I've been having really poorly timed insomnia. I usually have a lot of trouble getting back to sleep after I feed her. Yesterday after her 4:00am feeding, I never made it back to sleep. Barf.
I'm usually the one that puts her to bed, but she was still awake and grouchy when she finished nursing. I was so tired, I couldn't deal. Keith took her to her room and bounced her on the yoga ball for what he said was an hour. It was probably about half that, but I don't even know because I fell asleep instantly.
So, here we are, embracing the camera with the only picture I took today where you couldn't see the massive dark circles under my eyes. And trust, I made Ruby endure many a iPhone self-portrait this afternoon. Pretty much any room we were in in the house, we took some pictures. This is the only one I got.
I feel like I'm always making excuses for not doing a better job at embracing the camera. But hey, at least it's happening!
