Breanna’s gone through a sleep strike over the past few days (developmental milestone? Teething? Growth spurt? Total anarchy? That’s the fun part – you just never know!) and Hayley hasn’t been sleeping well either, going down easily but waking up in the middle of the night or getting up as early as the sun. As a result, since Sunday I’ve been totally tired. Today I’ve felt mildly like a zombie. I had two coffees this morning and seriously considered a third but three cups will usually make me feel queasy so I backed off and switched to water.
Anyway, all this fog in my brain means that aside from getting confused about my glasses (see below), I don’t have anything to say right now. Actually, I do have a few things worth writing but not if I try to make them the slightest bit coherent now. Maybe if I get some sleep tonight I can string a few paragraphs together; as it is, I’ve had to hit the backspace key more times that I can count to fix typo on top of typo.
Have some imagery instead.
My new favorite picture of the two of them:
But these two come in at a close second with the two of them lying in Hayley’s bed for storytime:
See what I mean about tired? I could barely even keep my eyes open to take this.
And since Amanda requested more video, here are two for you. I only wish my camera recorded sound too; I have a real video camera but no functional video capture card so I can only share sound-free video from my digital camera for now. Just imagine lots of giggling in both.
First, Breanna is trying to teach herself to crawl. She has the right idea, sort of, but lacks the co-ordination and strength (but oh, if desire was all that mattered, she’d be crawling everywhere!). Also, she needs to learn that you aren’t supposed to use your FACE to drag yourself along the ground. But hey, at least she’s happy about it.
And Hayley wanted me to take a video of her. I asked what she wanted to do and she immediately climbed on the bed and got ready for one of her favorite indoor activities – jumping on the bed!
Okay, that took all my energy reserves (though these pictures and several more that I didn’t link here are over on Flickr too. I think it’s time to watch the news in bed. Good night.
