Day 946: Nine Years (Plus 10 Days)

After I posted last night, everything kind of fell apart.  HH and I started into a bit of a bad fight and it wasn't until quite a while that I realized that the whole reason we were fighting was because I was completely exhausted.  I haven't slept much over the past few days.  Darling A has gotten even noisier in her sleep--if that's possible.

So, then I just kind of collapsed into a heap of tears.

HH helped me feel a bit better and took care of Darling A as much as possible.  And then he stayed home for a bit this morning so I could sleep in.  That was a bit of a Joyful Moment for me.

Then I went to an appointment with the lactation specialist at the pediatrician's office.  Darling A has a lazy latch and it's been getting worse.  And she's been pretty much just sleeping and not eating at all for the past couple of days.  Super stressful for me.  So, getting some assistance (and a little reassurance about all of my assessments of the situation) was a relief and another Joyful Moment.

Of course, turning to the side and discovering Baby B devouring an entire pack of gum from my purse while the specialist and I had been so intent on working on my latch.  I caught him with just one piece left in the pack.

This is the second time he's done this in the past week.  That's good for the digestive system, right?

Anyway, the day gradually got better.

And we finished it off by having a wonderful dinner date tonight to finally celebrate our anniversary in a good way.  We left Baby B with a babysitter and just brought Darling A with us.  She slept most of the time and we had a great time just enjoying a quiet (and yummy) dinner.  Including a yummy dessert.  It was wonderful.

But mostly, just having some time together was the best part of the Joyful Moment.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments--even if they are 10 days in the waiting!
