I'm Baaaack...


I can't believe my last blog post was over a week ago. I guess I should bring you up to date, but actually things have been relatively quiet. Our trip back to Arizona was uneventful; Sabrina pretty much slept the entire way home. We got back about 7 PM on Saturday, so there was enough time to go get The Boys. When I got home, I took them over to the common area to play with our neighbor's Yellow Lab Bronco. After being in the Pet Hotel for two weeks, there was a lot of energy to burn off. After they were good and tired, I brought them into the back yard and let them smell one of Sabrina's blankets. Gregg took her out the front door, and I brought them in the back to let them get the whole "Whoo-hoo we're back in our own home" dance that I knew they would do over with. When he came back in, they went to greet him, and we let them meet the baby. After a few sniffs and mild interest, they were off to make sure their stuff was where they left it and to do a patrol of the house. A week later, and they still like to give her a sniff if she's in her swing at dog's eye level, but mostly they're over her. Of course, I know even that they are our "Boys" we aren't going to leave them alone with her unattended. Just in case. Mostly, I don't want her covered in slobber, which is the most likely outcome.

Gregg is working from home for the rest of the month; I went back to work on Tuesday. I am planning to take a week off during the Memorial Day holiday. Sabrina sleeps really well; she gets a bottle at 10 or 11, then about 3 or 4, and again around 7. Best part is, after a bottle and diaper change, she's back to sleep. She's had a few fussy nights here and there, but for the most part we're pretty lucky in the sleeping department. So right now, we're just enjoying being a family of 3. Oh sorry, 5.

Hey family of five! You sound like you are settling in well. What will be your plan for Sabrina's care? Are you going to tag-team? My little one slept so well for a little while but then I do have to confess, she's never been a great sleeper -- just wants her mom, ha. Ahhh, well, sleep is highly overrated, or that's what I tell myself. Enjoy your beauty! --susan
