15 months

Meg went for her 15 month check up on Friday. The little darling is 26 pounds and 32 inches tall -- a healthy, growing girl most certainly. Bjorn is excited for her height. He figures if the old wives' tale of double their height at two is correct, then she's at least going to be 5'4" and that's a solid two inches taller than me and makes her the tallest on my side of the family, next to Aunt Tia. She showed off her jabbering sounds and a few steps. Then she had to get three shots. She cried and I nearly did. Poor chicken.

It's been a weird few weeks for me though. I've been having trouble sleeping for some reason. I don't feel stressed necessarily although Bjorn working out of town so much hasn't been so great. Now I find myself stressed about not being able to sleep. How refreshing is that? So I lie in bed mad at myself for not being able to sleep or else I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and have the same thing. It makes no sense.

My doctor had prescribed Ambien some time ago and I've been taking that a little. Of course, now I'm paranoid about getting an addiction to sleeping pills so I lie awake at night and try to go to sleep, then worry about that and then take something. Rather ridiculous. And the catch is that to take Ambien, you have to have an eight hour window to take it so if I don't take it early enough, I'm screwed. So now I'm totally in my head about this. It's so bizarre. Anybody else go through this?

It's so funny to be worried about my own sleep. I swear I have spent the better part of four years worried about my kids sleeping habits so I think my own have been all over the map for so long that I don't know what to do with myself.


  1. Haven't slept more than 3 hours any night in a week. Mark was gone so maybe that was part of it. I am having flashbacks to when Owen was a newborn. Ugh.

    Also, Meg now weighs more than Owen by a pound. And he's almost 2.

  2. Hey, I met Julie Lass last night! she sends her best and she didn't know you blogged. You should facebook her the blog link! she is very nice and she spoke very warmly of you. that sounds dumb but she said you guys were really close in freshman dorm.

    I did a weird sleep thing where I thought I wasn't stressed but I think now in retrospect I was in a bit of denial cuz I was... Sleep stunk though. finally just started passing out from exhaustion. It was hard. Not quite sure what changed but I am sleeping better now... (this was about a month and a half ago for about two-three weeks).
