CD usually takes the night shift with Summer. My lactation consultant told me (as ironic as it may sound) that as new mother, it is imperative that I get some rest. Up until last week, I was trying to nurse, supplement Summer with my pumped breast milk + formula, and then pump all throughout the day and evening, and I was hardly getting any sleep. So, CD graciously took over Summer’s nighttime feedings, and I just wake up every 3 hours to pump. However, Chris is running a 5-mile road race tomorrow, and so tonight, it’s just me and Summer. In preparation for our long evening together we sacked out on the couch after dinner with Einstein. 🙂
Speaking of dinner, this is one of the first nights we haven’t had food delivered – again, many thanks to our family and friends for all the yummy meals you have provided. We kept things fairly simple – CD baked up a Trader Joe’s sausage pizza, his pre-race meal of choice, and I made CD’s mustard bacon stir-fry for myself.
I forgot to add nooch to my dinner, and so I added it to dessert…
Cheesecake Oat Bran A La Mode: 1/2 cup oat bran cooked in water with 1 TBSP nooch stirred in after cooking and topped with vanilla ice-cream and cinnamon.
Weird combo? Perhaps, but you guys should be used to that by now. ‘Twas tasty.
OK, Summer is asleep, and so I should hit the hay as well. Good night and Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
