Home before noon, made soup, did dishes, took little one back for a bit as we itemized a list for the train, then at 2:20pm had a nap while Mom and Alexandra went for a stroll. Woke 3:10, went to clean up the yard/porch, called my parents, then Mom went to pick up her prescription. Wee one chose that hour to have a messy diaper change, very amusing. It was around 6:30pm I got the phone tree call - no school anywhere Monday due to tornado. From there, went to have bath in actual water, another milestone.
Kiddo was TIRED. We transplanted her from Mom to me at 8:40pm, and back just before 9pm, and (with soother) she stayed asleep. Usual dinner a bit after 10pm, everyone in bed except me by 11pm; I did more quiz marking, networking and junk to past midnight. Woke up 7am naturally (no alarm), had the wee one for six hours from 7:45am. Included two naps (9:15-9:45 and 12:10-12:40), a respite to shower (11:05-11:25 before Anne-Lise's bus to dentist) and the realization that Alexandra turns 90 degrees in her crib because she likes to smack the bottoms of her feet against things (to push off).
Tried to assemble playpen at 2pm, the "change table" part was messed up because if you put one thing in wrong, you can't undo it, and there's no warning. Frustrating. Went to calm down. Around 4pm as I was taking Alexandra back, she went from her side onto her front (with an arm trapped)... I untrapped the arm, and she held her head up like a boss. Mom had her most of the time in the afternoon though; quizzes were finished, a new math puzzle of the week was found, and some OAME was written up. Bed at the usual time.
Tuesday was... not great. Teaching was fine, then had to prep stuff, make a phone call, handle Cappies, stop at the store, and didn't get home until close to 4pm. Had wee one from 5pm to just after 6:30pm, when she was crying for sleep but couldn't manage it in my arms. (Though I got an extra star jumping around, which had temporarily helped.) Discovered I'd have an on-call, solidified being in a mood. Bed at regular time, she was in her crib until 6:20am.
Wednesday was long but much better. Teaching, test, Cappies, 10 minutes for lunch, on call, prepping 3M task, handling other items, stopping at store, home a bit after 4:30pm. With Alexandra from a bit before 5pm to a bit before 7pm, including a half hour snooze that took some effort to attain. Then making supper and marking. Break to put the wee one to bed after 10pm (drank almost 6 ounces, whoa), then finished 11:30pm. Wheee. Stayed off social media the whole day too.
Thursday woke up at 6:20am, used bathroom, changed munchkin and brought her to bed. Didn't end up falling back asleep, to school a bit early, handled things there including duty. Home by 12:45pm, learned that an hour ago Alexandra had been rolling over from her front to her back via her side. (Wee one was more concerned over a mirror than that, more a nonplussed 'so that's how that works'.) Anne-Lise caught video the third time. Was with munchkin for a bit over two hours total, split by about ten minutes in the middle. Included a 30 min snooze right near the start. They went for a walk at 3:30pm, I headed back out soon after.
Math social from 4:30pm to 7pm went well enough, got to talk to some people I hadn't in a while and got some affirmation that I have good writing and my FB posts about wee one are nice to read. Also, Marian Small. Would have been home for 8pm except for lineups for gas and Harvey's. Comic chat, then bedtime routine. Friday there was a fire drill, and I'd been made a warden a couple hours previous without being officially notified, so that happened. Anime club was fine, home before 2pm to get to Doctor's appointment. And kiddo's SIN card arrived!
Alexandra is almost at 5 kg. With the 15 minutes before leaving, and 45 minutes after getting home at 3:30pm, I face-planted after an hour with her. We need to implement a good snooze policy, maybe the bassinet in her room? (Saturday edit: No, she's not a fan.) Didn't really sleep. Did some grading, took her back just before 8pm for around 100 minutes including a sleep at the end, so saw my show. Bottle and bed after I managed some supper, then stayed up later for reasons. Woke up a bit after 7:30am.
Had wee one from 9am to 2:15pm, minus 40 minutes or so around 11am before Mom left for her class. We went out for a walk for part of that, also fit in a half hour snooze. Then some grading and writing, then munchkin from 5pm to 6pm, then out for RP. Got home 10:15pm in time for last bottle, which required two diaper changes - then she seemed very proud of herself and a bit wired, awkwardly. Too tired to properly finish my next part, but September hasn't had any day over 10 views, so fine.
