Quentin is awesome. He slept a third night in a row, all night. I put him down sometime around 10:30 pm last night after his feeding, and he slept right through until just before 8:30 am this morning. Sleeping through the night at 12 weeks old? I'm loving this. Praying for a repeat tonight again. We slept in together until mid-morning today.


After I got up for the day, Jamie wanted to nap, so I took the kids into Quentin's room while I organized some baby toys (I wanted to see which needed to be ran through the dishwasher (to clean) and which were good to go into his toy buckets in his room. I also went through all of Quentin's bibs and made a donate pile and a trash pile (some were really bad from being used since Sean needed them & then Mackenzie)). After we cleaned & organized in Quentin's room, I brought the boys down to the dinning room so that we could do all of our puzzles. Sean & Mack recently decided that it would be funny to dump our puzzle books (we have a handful of them that have about 5 puzzles in each, at about 12 pieces per puzzle). They had dumped every single one out, so we had to sort the pieces by puzzle and by book and then put them all back together. This killed some time before lunch, and I'm glad it's all organized again.

I pulled out Cache Coeur to see if it would fit Quentin, and it does. It's too bad he was born too small, the Cache Coeur is something that would have been fantastic for him to use as a newborn to keep warm. I am going to go through our other hand knits to see what else will fit Quentin now (before it's too late).


Quentin is doing well with his neck control. It's still not perfect, but it's certainly getting there. We've been having tummy time lately, and he's doing good. Once he really starts to control his head better, I'll start using the Bumbo more.

Today was catch up on laundry day, however, I still feel like after doing about 6 loads today that I have another 6 loads more to do tomorrow. It never ends. And once you are done all of it, you wake up the next morning and the baskets are starting to fill up again. I never thought I would be doing this much laundry with a family of 5. I guess with a newborn even though they wear tiny clothes, there is still a lot of it. It's insane. Sometimes I wish the laundry folded itself. It's a long and tedious job. I think what I hate more than folding it - is putting it all away.

I have a new feature on my sidebar, which you can now subscribe to my blog via email. I set it up a few days ago and tested it out and it works. So if you want to never miss out on my posts, you can enter in your email address on my sidebar, it'll email you a confirmation link and then it'll email you daily (I believe in the morning) with my latest post! Pretty neat if you ask me.

Don't forget that you have until tomorrow night to enter my contest for a free copy of this book.

I remember those first few "sleep through the night" mornings - heaven!
And we're a family of 3, and have never ending laundry as well. I can relate. at least kid clothes are quicker to fold than 12 year olds...

How do such little kids produce so much laundry?
