Day 974: Ridiculously Tired

I don't know what is going on.  I've had three babies prior to this one.  And she's not up in the night all that much, really.  I mean, at least not compared to a lot of other two-month old babies.

But I am so tired.

So.  Tired.

Like, kind of scary tired.

I dropped the kids off at school with my yoga pants on inside out.  Not a big deal, except that I got out of the car to walk Little M over to his line and gave him a big huge kiss and there was a mass of parents and children all around.

I stared at the nurse for a full five seconds after she asked my name before the question sank in and I could remember the answer.  My name!

This is a problem.

But, Darling A did have a stellar two-month check up.  She's perfectly healthy.  Joyful Moment!  My two concerns were not a big deal, according to the pediatrician.  I just love our pediatrician.  She's kind of more like a friend.

Darling A weighed in at 12 lbs. 14 oz.  Little M was 16 lbs. 4 oz. at this same age.  Call me weird, but it was a Joyful Moment in affirming that she's not quite that big.  I love her chubby rolls and all, but I want her to stay little for a while longer!

I roasted some Hatch green chiles tonight while HH was grilling the pork chops for dinner.  You may recall that I did this last year.  And I went ga-ga over the smell all over again.  Roasted green chiles just have one of the best smells ever!  Joyful Moment  in a smell.

And then I hung out with some girlfriends for a bit tonight to roll up some tamales.  I haven't seen anyone in a while since I've been a little busy with Darling A and then we were out of town, so it was a Joyful Moment to catch up with everyone there.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and plenty of rest!

This was a crazy day for me - I walked more than I should have on my foot - but I'm happy with the things I did. I hope you get some extra sleep one of these days...
