I’m up and have showered. Calvin’s still asleep but I expect him to wake any moment.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 8:59 AM
I’m debating whether or not to risk trying to pump before he gets up.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 9:20 AM
He’s still sleeping. Should I wake him up?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 10:15 AM
Calvin is practicing his bicycle legs at the moment.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 11:20 AM
Got the daycare packet and returned the scale. Now trying to convince him it’s time to nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 12:22 PM
Nap time wasn’t successfully so I’m going to feed him and try again.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 12:56 PM
In addition to trying to implement nap time, I’ve been trying to implement it in his crib upstairs.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 12:57 PM
The bassinet we’ve been using downstairs is only rated to 15 lbs and as @calvinsdad mentioned, Calvin in already 12lbs 8oz.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 12:58 PM
It looks like my scheme *might* have worked. Now to pump with the baby monitor next to me.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 1:54 PM
Calvin is up again but I did get most of supper put together.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 2:06 PM
Calvin successfully sucked his thumb for about 2 seconds!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 2:06 PM
I think he’s still sleepy. I’m going to try rocking him a bit.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 2:38 PM
I’ve deeply offended Calvin and I don’t know how. Maybe I got him up from his original nap too soon?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 2:58 PM
Well, music soothed him for a bit but he’s crying again.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 5:13 PM
Calvin just ate again so we’re trying for another nap. He was falling asleep as I fed him but seems resistant to the nap idea.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 5:24 PM
Life is so much saner now that I understand Calvin won’t take naps on his own unless you leave him in his crib and shut the door.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2009 5:25 PM
I guess life is just too interesting to take a voluntary break.

Calvin likes Brown Rice Pancakes _much_ better than Puff Apple Pancakes.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 8:20 AM
I think Calvin is going to be able to crawl out of his activity center soon.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 8:43 AM
Normally Calvin is excited to see the other kids at daycare but today he didn’t want me to leave.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 2:40 PM
Today was pajama day at daycare so Calvin got to wear his new “Zoom to the Moon” pajamas.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 2:41 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had a blast climbing on mats today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 2:41 PM
Hm . . . it appears he didn’t eat any veggies or beans for lunch, only fruit.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 2:46 PM
I brought a pillow into the kitchen so Calvin can lay down on it and drink his bottle while he watches me work in the kitchen.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 4:29 PM
Just got back from the park and now the house feels stuffy in contrast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 5:45 PM
Calvin is playing with his baby quarterstaff again (i.e. the wooden rod to secure the sliding door).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 6:07 PM
I have a carton of whipping cream that needs to be used. I guess we’re having ice cream this weekend.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 6:15 PM
I think Calvin wants something that’s not on the menu tonight. He’s refusing to eat beans soup which he normally likes.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2010 7:22 PM
The trickiest part of playing for church these days is finding a babysitter for Calvin.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2011 1:56 PM
Calvin shrieked for 15 min on the way home from church. As soon as I got home, I handed him to @calvinsdad


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2015 6:03 PM
The scheduled shut off on the iPad works! (And Calvin is most distressed by this.)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2015 8:05 PM
Julian threw a fit and refused to breastfeed tonight. Turns out it was because there was nothing there. 15 min pumping = 7 mL.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2021 12:00 PM
You’d think with the number of houses I’ve lived in within the past 10 years I wouldn’t be so excited by yet another house. However, I’m still at the point where I have to stop myself from squeeing every time I walk in.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 21, 2021 2:33 PM
I applaud the dedication to making voids into storage. However, if I’m storing anything that out of the way maybe I should get rid of it instead.

Picture of hallway with door at the end. Above the door, about 9 feet up, is a storage cupboard.

I picked (Meyer?) lemons from our house today and made Coconut Citrus Cookies and Lemonade. I’d still prefer a persimmon tree but Calvin is a lemon convert.
