Peanut sitting

Day one of babysitting the littlest peanut aka "Jenna-Bug". Little peanuts aren't quite as cute when you are 52 and stay awake all night listening for any little peeps because it is a HUMONGOUS responsibility watching your child's baby. :D Of course, I did the same thing when my 89 year old mother in law moved in with us. I listened for her "thumping down the hall" (she uses a cane) in the middle of the night and had no sleep for two weeks until I got used to hearing her. I was always concerned she would fall. She is in a skilled nursing facility now. She did eventually fall and needed more care than we could give. I don't know why I can't just sleep until these special guest really wake me up with a fall or a cry. DSH sleeps just fine through it all!

Little Jenna-Bug is eight months old. She had a hard time falling asleep last night, I finally went in and got her up to rock her to sleep. She fell asleep fast then. She talked through-out the night but didn't cry. I heard her almost every hour making talking/cooing sounds. Maybe she talks in her sleep. Husband snored the whole night so I had a lovely duet. One more night to go. Mom and Dad get home Sunday night. I will go to bed early! Well, she is taking a nap so I will go shower. If I could nap I would. I NEVER nap.
