Matt went back to work today for the first time in over a week. The pox are finally starting to wane, thank God. Which is a good thing because guess who threw her back out trying to sneak out to the couch to get some much needed shut eye at 5:54 am?

Yep. Flat on the floor, down for the count. I'm starting to think we're paying back a karmic debt.

Amanda is here taking over baby duty so I can "rest", which means I'm doing pretty much everything but. You'd think being forced to spend a day in bed would be a dream come true but between the pain and the constant fussing it's hard to relax. Still, having Amanda here is fantastic. I don't know what I would have done otherwise. I'm not sure she believed me about what it takes to get Will to sleep but after a couple of hours of ineffectual sleep-nursing (at some point - usually around the time the baby starts to look like a tick - it's time to admit defeat) there she was, bouncing and shushing like a champ. Capital s-i-g-h...

As my friend Aimee says: "Soon the present will be the past and you'll say, 'Oh God, remember that'..."

What did you DO in your other life? Kill puppies with you bare hands or something?

Were you Vlad the Impaler? What?

I must know!

Hey man, I will come over and bounce 'n' shush that kid any day. You're just lucky that he is SO freakin' adorable!
