The last few weeks have had me under a lot more stress than usual so my time to blog has decreased a bit. I have a conference coming up next week and have been preparing a poster for presentation. This is my first big school project since having Colin and while the begining of the week was very hairy (with stress magnified by not sleeping more than 90 mins at a stretch thanks to the little guy) the second half of the week went much more smoothly and I have just sent a nearly-final draft to my advisor for his opinion. I don't expect any HUGE content changes so hopefully I can finish things up this weekend just in time for the printer to get it done before the conference.
At the moment I'm stuck under a sleeping infant who woke up when my phone rang (cruses!) and doesn't want to be put back down to sleep (although he will happily sleep on me). I'm starting to fear that I have a spoiled sleeper, who refuses to sleep more than 30 mins in his crib during the day and who still wakes up 3x a night regardless of my best efforts to induce sleep. I'm stuck in a weird place that an 'attachment parenting' style would argue creates a more secure individual, but I'm just not sure. I never considered myself an attachment style parent, yet here I am sitting on the couch with my baby fast asleep across my lap and not in his crib (he does nap well in the swing too)... Lucky for me the laptop computer still allows me to get work done while in this position. Maybe I should read up on attachment parenting to see how long I can let this continue before I've created a monster...If you can't beat 'em join 'em right?
