I must say I really thought that babies slept more. In the books I read it said babies sleep for at least 17 hours a day. I naïvely thought “Great I will get a lot of stuff done this spring” yeah well that just didn’t happen. Little pickle doesn’t like to nap during the day and insists that I sit next to her or hold her all day. She does however know that 10pm is bed time and never fights us to go to sleep. Some days She gets a good 5 hour sleep to start and then up for a feeding and back down for 3 hours if we are lucky. Two weeks ago she was sleeping 9 hours a night getting up at 7 and then sleeping again till 10. I swear now that we are back to being up every 3 hours at night it hitting me harder now than in the first month. To every book and every parent that said it gets easier in month 3 I say… b.s…..lol Nonetheless she will be 3 months on the 13th so things can get better. The days have been a bit easier of late since I don’t have to be holding her all the time. I have been getting a few mins on the internet to check my e-mail, but today is the first time I have had time to type out a blog post. Still no time to catch up on my blog reading. We do own an iPad, but I just never seem to have the time to use it during the day and then at night Mr.P uses it and to be honest I am not sure what I am doing…lol
Nonetheless there has been some progress made on the garden!! Little pickle decided that she hates it outside and won’t spend more than 5mins outside. Since she is only 11 weeks that’s okay as she really shouldn’t be out in the heat anyhow, but it makes it hard to plant the garden. I have also been having health problems again which has made it hard for me to be out in the garden once again too. However, my mother watched the baby for a couple of hours last Monday and I was able to get the entire back garden planted with norland potatoes.
Mr.P planted 3 rows of norland in the main garden too. We will be using these as a new potato crop.
The back garden
On Tuesday I got two rows or 8 boxes planted in the main garden before I felt the telltale signs of heat stroke and on Saturday my lovely mother planted the rest of the garden for me while I watch little pickle…..so what does that mean…………well it means the GARDEN IS IN!!
The main garden. My mother tied twine around each box so we know what is planted where.
