I think Calvin has officially started cooing. Now if only he’d sleep for a couple more hours.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 8:54 AM
Okay, sleep is a lost cause. Calvin is fully awake.

It’s too bad babies don’t come with signs that say things like, “I’m hungry”, “I’m sleepy”, “I’m just cranky”.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 12:07 PM
I think Calvin is cluster feeding.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 12:17 PM
I’ve been feeding Calvin off and on since 10:30.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 12:23 PM
Whew, he’s sleeping (at least for 2 seconds).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 12:39 PM
Yeah, I spoke too soon.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 1:55 PM
Well, he slept for about 30 minutes. Just long enough for me to pump.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 2:31 PM
Hungry again?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 3:46 PM
Well, looks like he’s hungry again. After all, it’s been a full hour since he ate.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2009 5:10 PM
Well, Calvin did sleep except I was holding him at the time and was afraid to move.

Took Calvin on a walk after Sabbath school so he could take a nap.

From daycare, “Calvin enjoyed reading _The Carrot Seed_!”

Calvin passed his hearing test with flying colors.

My holds are coming in for vacation. I’m so excited! Reading, by myself, only me!!

[I still remember this as one of my best vacation ever.]


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2015 12:28 PM
The good news is I’m not tired. The bad news is Julian is pretty cranky today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2015 1:48 PM
Mommy exercise: running up and down the stairs to put the pacifier back in baby’s mouth.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2015 3:42 PM
Someday I’m going to remember to grab my cookbooks before starting the baby swing.

The internet is succeeding in messing with my head.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2016 8:37 PM
Considering whether Amazon Fresh is worth the $299 after all since Safeway’s delivery service doesn’t allow hyphenated last names.

Most of our rose bushes are blooming.

Picture of a rose. The rose is pink with the pink getting darker at the edges of the petals. The leaves are dark green.

Calvin and I are making supper tonight together!

Calvin cooking. Calvin stands in front of a stove pour a can of tomatoes into a cast iron pan. He's wearing safety goggles.

Ah yes, it’s the season to get attacked by crows.

I’m listening to a book called House Lust which is about the US’ obsession with houses. It was published in 2008. He’s admiringly talking about interest rates for 30-year mortgages being below 7%. It’s astonishing when you look at mortgage rates today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2021 11:57 AM
He’s also talking about people who got adjustable rate interest only loans for houses and wow does that bring back memories. I still remember when I sat down and read the loan papers after signing (because we hadn’t seen them prior to closing. Ahhh!) and realized what we signed.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 15, 2021 11:57 AM
We’re very, very lucky we had the skills to create our own amortization charts and enough money to pay down the principal.

Huh. Apparently my Fitbit mistakes piano practicing for walking. Well, I guess that’s an easy way to get steps in.
