Massi's little life is getting into a routine. He sleeps best smooshed up in his car seat and was obviously used to sleeping amidst the turmoil his siblings cause because they don't wake him up. He also doesn't get upset if I yell to one of the kids while I'm holding him. He's used to that too. I'm still in survival mode and as Eric said today, "these kids are ganging up on us!" I'll say it again, I don't know how pioneer women survived this kind of thing without hot showers which keep me sane, wake me up and wash away the tears these days.
Diaper changing station, located in his room that he shares with Ridge. Massi hates cold wipes on his bum and having bare feet makes him get especially nervous.
I love my portable diaper station! Ridge made the toolbox at scouts and didn't have an immediate use for it so I asked if I could have it for diapers and such. I can just carry everything back and forth from our room, where he sleeps carseat inside pack-n-play, to his room where we do this kind of business during the day.
Here we are in my chair in the corner of my room. A lovely little spot for reading and feeding this baby. Come over and there's a good chance you'll find me here these days.
Face to face time with Dad. He isn't always this good for Eric though. I took three kids to the library the other night and Massi woke up and screamed the entire time for his dad.
Laine trying to burp him but he was tickling her by scratching his little hands by her neck.
Ridge is a great help. When Massi cries he is happy to pick him up. Thursday I was trying to help Cannon with some homework that he was very reluctant to do. Massi woke up, or wasn't quite asleep, and Ridge went to get him, laid him on a pillow on the floor in the living room where Ridge was working on his homework, and kept him calm until Cannon and I finished.
We haven't ventured out very much. Massi is usually patient with the morning school run and we've only been late once and that was just by a few minutes and it wasn't his fault.
That's what's going on in our little world these days.
