Jade’s 6-Monthiversary

30 Jul
Jade is officially 6 months old today!  To celebrate, she decided to have a party and refused to sleep this morning from about 2 a.m. until 5.  I gave up, almost in tears, around 4:30 and Michael took over.  He ended up by taking her for a drive and brought the car seat, with a snoozing Jade, into our bedroom around 6 a.m.  She actually slept in there for about 2 hours. 
While Michael was out driving, I tried to get back to sleep, but I was so tense that I couldn’t relax.  I actually had to go and have a shower, which was a big help.  Crook was very confused about all the early morning activity and wondered why I didn’t feed him.
I had been hoping for a good night because I started coming down with a cold yesterday evening and I was hoping to head it off.  However, I guess I can’t complain too loudly as this is my first cold in over 15 months. 
To give me a break, Jade went with Michael and his parents on their hike this afternoon.  If she gets hungry, she’ll just have to learn to deal with a bottle, darn it!  She’s taken to drinking out of a sippy cup lately (with the valve removed), so I think she might actually be able to handle the bottle. 
In the meantime, I’ve been napping most of the day and it’s done me some good.  I think I’ll have to send Jade out with Michael more often!
