I have come to the conclusion that you can’t squeeze a size 2 butt into size 1 diapers.  I have been leaked on a few times in the last couple of days, but I am desperately trying to use the last 70 size 1 diapers that we have!  Drew’s cousin has run into the same problem and said she is just storing them for the next kid.  I guess that’s the best solution. 

I have also been experimenting with naps.  Ethan’s still too young to be on an actual schedule I think, but I try to put him down as soon as he shows signs of not wanting to have have anything with the conscious world.  I’m nervous about him switching his day and night so I wake him up if it’s been more than 3 hours, I think he would sleep all afternoon if I let him!  I can’t decide what to do with him in the evening.  I want him to “go to bed” around 7-8 (since we’ll have to get him up around 7 when I go back to work) but he likes to take a nap around 5:30.  He must be so confused when I force him up only to be put back down again an hour later.  Yesterday he gave me a look when I was giving him his bath, and I knew he was thinking, “You seriously got me up for this?!”  So far we have been blessed with a good nighttime sleeper, I hope it lasts!  He typically will go for a 5 hour stretch followed by two 3 hour stretches.  Last night, though, he went 7 hours then another 4.  I could live with that!

Ethan and I visited his daycare yesterday.  I hadn’t been there since I was preggers and I wanted to check it out again before he goes at the end of the month.  I am still conflicted about the situation, but I feel this is the best solution we could hope for since I can’t afford to stay home full time.  I just hope he doesn’t walk for the first time while he’s there.  Maybe I’ll just tell the staff not to tell me if it happens and think he’s walking for the first time at home. :)  The teachers are very sweet and you can tell they really care for the babies.  I know he will be well taken care of, I just have to let my control issues go!  There was a baby girl who was playing when I got there and she wouldn’t stop grinning at Ethan.  What a flirt!!  It will be cute to see these kids grow up together, maybe his future best friend will be one of his classmates!

It’s too bad I don’t have a Baboo to tend to since it’s 2:15 AM and I’m awake!  I don’t even know exactly why I can’t go back to sleep, but alas, after trying for quite awhile, I figured I’d just get up and wander in the wonder of the worldwide web.   In any case, I’m thankful that I’m not being kept up by any kind of crazy intra-uterine movement or pain.  Baboo continues to be a very considerate being in the pain-inducing department.  Hope he keeps it up.

I recently came to the conclusion that perhaps I have experienced his hiccups after all, however.  I had been really bummed that I was missing out on such an experience but then suddenly realized that perhaps the occasions where I thought he’d been very disciplined in his rhythmic kicking might actually have been TOO consistent to be kicks.  I mean, maybe he’s already so diligent in his soccer practice that one can set his kicks to a metronome, but my guess is that these occasional sets of constant and consistent motion are actually hiccups.  I wish there were a contraption to allow others to experience the same sensations– seriously, every time Seth tries to feel movement, there’s nothing. Over Thanksgiving, my brother took to poking at my belly and saying, “DO SOMETHING!”

Yeah, that’s pretty much all I know.
