Re: MOTN GTKY

  • 1. Since I'm mobile how old is LO?
    He was 5 weeks on Friday

    2. Since it is MOTN What is the longest stretch of night sleep LO has given you so far?
    Last night my LO went 7 hours! I was amazed. Usually he goes 56 in one stretch

    3. What is your best sleep trick for LO?
    Swaddling has been our lifesaver...that and the pacifier

    4. If you are going back to work, how old will LO be?
    Not going back to work this time around as I'm a SAHM. But, with DD I went back at 9 weeks and it was SO hard!

    5. What was the last movie you watched? How many stars would you give it out of 5?
    we last saw Iron Man 3 right at the end of my pregnancy. What I saw of it between my million pee breaks I liked! I would give it 4 out of 5

    Bonus: Have you ever met someone famous?
    Nope! Maybe someday

    So its random but I'm already tired...

  • 1. Since I'm mobile how old is LO? 5 weeks

    2. Since it is MOTN What is the longest stretch of night sleep LO has given you so far? 7 hours once, but consistently 6

    3. What is your best sleep trick for LO? She falls asleep around 7 to 8 most nights but I wake her up to feed her at 10 right before I go to bed so we can get a longer sleep stretch. I'm tempted to skip it and see what time she would wake up without it, but I'm scared.

    4. If you are going back to work, how old will LO be? At 6 weeks on this Wednesday.

    5. What was the last movie you watched? How many stars would you give it out of 5? Grow Ups was on TV today, I'd give it a 3. I only watched it cause it was on, but parts are really funny.

    Bonus: Have you ever met someone famous? No, but I'm curious if anyone else has.

    So its random but I'm already tired...

     1. Since I'm mobile how old is LO?

    One week!  

     

    2. Since it is MOTN What is the longest stretch of night sleep LO has given you so far?

    2-3 hours 

     

    3. What is your best sleep trick for LO?

    We put her in the double swaddle posted below for the first time tonight and she appears to like it!  Maybe our sleepless nights the last two nights were because she was under-swaddled. 

     

    4. If you are going back to work, how old will LO be?

    6 weeks

     

    5. What was the last movie you watched? How many stars would you give it out of 5?

    "View from the Top" was on TV today, which I also happen to own, so I guess I'd give it five.  "The Heat" was the last movie we saw in the theater, which I'd give a four (found it funny, but don't need to own it). 

     

    Bonus: Have you ever met someone famous?

    Nobody other than local celebrities, like the weatherman...

    I hung out with Maggie Gyllenhaal for a few days when she came to speak at my school and I was in charge of the event. I've also met Jerry Seinfeld, Anderson Cooper, Tori Amos, Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Williams, a whole slew of actors from the soap opera All My Children, and more semi-famous musicians than I can count.

    9 days

    2. Since it is MOTN What is the longest stretch of night sleep LO has given you so far? 3.5 hours

    3. What is your best sleep trick for LO?
    Swaddling and paci. And nursing to sleep.
    4. If you are going back to work, how old will LO be? 12 weeks. Part time though.

    5. What was the last movie you watched? How many stars would you give it out of 5? Nightmare Nanny on lifetime. Perfect maternity leave ridiculousness during DS1's nap this afternoon. It was so bad but I'd give it 4 stars for so bad it's good level.

    Bonus: Have you ever met someone famous? Yes, a lot actually. I used to live in NYC and look cute at one point in my life so I ended up in a lot of fun parties and clubs. Most memorable was Jimmy Fallon. He came back to my dorm room to watch Dawson's Creek. No joke, that was my reason for leaving the bar so he said he'd come watch it too. I had a boyfriend at the time so nothing happened but I am presuming he thought watch Dawson's creek really meant more than that. Either way he was hilarious and super nice and bought my dorm mates beer and snacks because he didn't want to show up empty handed.

    So its random but I'm already tired...
