I had my shoes laced up when he stepped through the front door. The past couple of mornings had been rough. Well, make that the past couple of nights. So, I felt like a zombie walking around on Tuesday and Wednesday. So, yesterday afternoon when Adam walked in, I handed Henry off to him and took off on a run with Powers. No walking warm up. After all, it was pouring down rain. But I had to get out of that house and the fresh air and the exertion did me good. See, yesterday it rained all day so we couldn't go on a walk and my car was blocked in by the work truck from the fellows who are working on the windows. So, I was feeling a bit cooped...coupled that with serious sleep deprivation and ba-da-bing, you have yourself a combo for C.M.S. (crazy mama syndrome). The result of which is that I ran the best run I've had since little Henry came along!
Last night was wonderful- we are getting serious (as of my CMS episode yesterday) about getting scheduled and about Henry learning to fall asleep more on his own. He slept like a champ (for him) last night 8:30 to 12:50, 1 to 4:20, then I had to WAKE HIM UP at 8. I don't think I've had to wake that boy up in years, well weeks! Praise the Good Lord for lots of sleep. Now he's napping in his little chair and I am oh, so happy that he is rested and happier. And I feel like I have a goal, some structure, some direction.
On a side note, nothing has made me a more constant prayer than having a son...Lord, what do I do? and Thank you Jesus, he had a good night!
Henry was staring at Powers and smiling this morning and it was really sweet. So far, Powers hasn't shown a whole lot of interest in Henry aside from an occasional lick on the face (sanitary!) but he better get ready because I can imagine Henry will be pulling on those ears and tail pretty darn soon.
