It has been a few busy, sleep-deprived weeks here. We are trying Lucy on a new schedule - following Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution. It seems to be working - knocking on wood with my fingers crossed. Lucy still isn't sleeping more than a few hours, but it is not constant nursing. She is teething as well - so that likely contributes to her trouble sleeping.
This weekend we gathered chestnuts. There are several trees in our backyard - I remember when I was little hating them because once they fell I couldn't go barefoot anymore. Especially frustrating in Indian Summer. These trees are Chinese Chestnuts. Wonderful, yes, but wouldn't it be great to have some American Chestnut trees? The American Chestnut Foundation's website
It was such fun to have the family working for a common cause - Lucy on my back and Wes finding chestnuts everywhere.
Speaking of Lucy on my back - she loves her carrier. Every time she sees it coming, she squeals, and claps and is absolutely delighted. Unfortunately, that is making it harder to get her on my back - she's a bit too excited.
