I give up, vacation wins!
We are on vacation this week with Little Brim and all of the new sights, sounds, people, teething, and sleeping arrangements are winning over his sleep. And mine. As a full-time, working (outside the home) mom, I have to give you all stay-at-home-moms big credit for doing multiple days with fussy babies. This is the longest stretch that I have been a “full-time” mom since Little Brim was eight weeks old. It’s so incredibly awesome to spend this much time with him each day, yet doing that and teething four teeth at the same time (maybe five?), skipping all naps, nursing full time, and visiting friends and family around town has totally whooped me out today. Fingers crossed for a long sleep stretch tonight.
Until I post more about swaddles and mobiles, here are some photos from this week so far.

Little Brim is amazed at Cheap Trick rock paraphernalia in his rock me! romper. I’ll post a review this weekend on this romper as it is absolutely fantastic and so easy and comfortable for both baby and mom.

Elemental All Good Lips lip balm found at the Duluth Trading Company. It’s so nice.
He’s clapping because he slept from 10pm-6:30am in a single stretch! I’m clapping too.
This ended my day today. Sometimes you really earn a beer by the pool. It’s especially nice if it’s a New Glarus beer. Now I’m off to try and find a good stretch of sleep.
