A while back, I “won” the promise of a homemade gift from Poppy over at Eeney Meeney Miney Mommy. Well, today the gift arrived and oh my goodness, is it adorable! Thank you thank you thank you, we are so impressed by the craftsmanship, creativity and sentiment. Curly helped us open the package and models with his gift below.
In other news, sleep deprivation and caring for a newborn have created the following amusing incidents starring my lovely wife Strawberry. At some indeterminate o’dark hour, with Curly sleeping safely in his bassinet, I awoke to Strawberry peeling back the covers and patting them furiously. She was hallucinating that the baby was in the bed with us, under the covers and suffocating. I had to assure her that he was in the bassinet next to us, just fine. Apparently, this was the second time it had happened that same night, as she was recalling later on. The first time she was in bed alone and he was downstairs with me. I have no idea how long she went about patting the covers that time.
And secondly, just now, as I was soothing Curly with his pacifier after he had finished breastfeeding, he spit out the pacifier and it went under the coffee table where I couldn’t reach it. Curly began to cry and Strawberry reached under the coffee table to retrieve it, and instead of wiping it off and putting it back in Curly’s mouth, she wiped it off and tried to put it in MY mouth. We both shared a laugh at that.
I was just reading your post from yesterday when I saw a ping back from you. I am so happy you like it!
Wishing you all some sleep and a few good hours of peace and quiet. It will get better… someday… hopefully soon. 😉
Does it have silky ears? I seem to recall an elephant that was special to you that had silky ears.
What a great gift (Poppy rocks). I chuckled at your pacifier story – I hope you both get some rest soon. 🙂
whoa, i am totally impressed by poppy’s craftiness! i LOVE the elephant!
Your post gave me a good laugh 🙂 The elephant is just precious (not as precious as the little guy, of course!)
what a cute little elephant for Miles.. maybe he should let his mommies borrow it and get some sleep!
oh the fun of sleep deprivation!
i know it sounds like forever but by 2 – 3 months the sleep thing is MUCH better and by 6 months all of this is a distant memory.
haha..funny stories. hope sleep comes soon :]
