Home by 6:30pm, unpacking for laundry, bottle/pump, dinner, and running around with wee one after 7:30pm got her to nap and me a star. Doctor Who at 8pm. Nothing else to report, though didn't get continuous sleep overnight. Up about 8:45am, with the little one from 9:30am to 10:45am, when Mom was needed to help her sleep. Gave some bottles through the day, relatives visited afternoon. Bath at 6:30pm, she didn't complain constantly. Then a bottle and story time - "Darkest Dark". I got choked up after. Some complaints as Alexandra was given to Mom for sleep, needed K'tan, as normal from 10pm on. Did progress reports until midnight. x.x
Tuesday was was bit crazy. Kid was up by 7:45am, I did teaching and other things (someone solved math puzzle, yay), then ignored more grading in favour of shopping (including poker chips) and getting home after 1:30pm. Alexandra had been fussy all day and only napped in stroller. Mom went to rest, was with wee one from 2pm to 4:15pm, which included a half hour snooze and a half hour of massive crying for the latter part. (Temperature normal.) Once she was more settled, bottle, then Dad got an hour or so of snooze. Then got dinner set, and was with wee one by 6:30pm while Mom did laundry. Read "Babies in the Snow" after 7pm, she tried to help with flaps. Alexandra's turn, she managed to be asleep by 8pm. (10pm as normal.)
Wednesday was regular morning, Doctor's appointment at 1:30pm and with Alexandra from 2:30 to 4pm. Then again 5:15pm to 6pm including a half hour snooze, then trading off to try and encourage more sleep because she slept less than two hours all day. Slept 7pm to 10pm, bottle... then would not fall asleep. Another bottle (to 6 oz), it's 11:30pm, and everyone's breaking down. Another bottle (to 8 oz), 12:20am, still awake. In bed with Mom, Dad went downstairs. Some sleep, some marking, back to school.
Home for 1pm, in order to go to a community group of 0-1 year olds by 1:30pm. Turned out to be mostly older kids (one was 6 months, most were 9 months) but some fascination - then worn out, slept for 30+ min in Dad's arms, then freaked out upon awakening. Back home (with stop at DQ since missed the closure). Dad and Alexandra got an hour of snooze in after 4pm. Brief swap, tears, then with Mom for rest of evening as dishes, dinner and grading was done. Got musical octopus out too. Extra bottle just after midnight as wee one woke up and I was still grading; I got to bed about 1am.
Friday - teaching new activity, teaching/lab, pep rally but students need to do old evaluation, anime club, osstf newsletter and other miscellaneous... not home until 3pm. Alexandra apparently doesn't like being on her back any more (from rolling to her front Thurs morn? from seeing the other babies not on their back Thurs afternoon?) so holding was an issue. Dad napped as Mom took little one for a walk, and then there was some Dad time from 5:20 or so until 6:40, including story of itsy bitsy spider. Then to CanCon, specifically for the Filk panel, also caught some of Kari's reading from 7:30pm. Home (via store) in time for bed at 10:10pm. Then some self time until after midnight.
Up 6:30am, had little one from 7:20am until 9:05am including a half hour snooze at the end. Then checkin with OAME AGM online, and 45 more minutes including a bottle for Anne-Lise to get things done. Back to Con for 11am panel, and browsing. Back home for 1:30pm, drove Anne-Lise to gathering, time with Alexandra from 3pm to 7pm, documented on camera. (From park to tears to story.) Then dinner, with a bit more running out tears, some Nash, and final collapse about 11pm. Fortunately, somehow caught up in grading.
