Not much knitting happened this past week, nor reading. I am *almost* finished reading Kingbird Highway. My enjoyment of this book increases with each passing chapter. Kaufman’s trip to Alaska has been my favorite section thus far. I am up to the middle chapters of Silent Spring & continue to work on the study guide for it as I go along (as part of Coralee’s homeschool curriculum). No.6 Aviatrix ravelry notes here.
It snowed Monday evening three whole inches! I know, that’s nothing compared to the 40+ received on the East Coast this past weekend, but we’ve had very little snow this winter in Iowa. Three inches may be paltry, but it didn’t seem to stop the roads from going to pot around here…I barely got Merritt to the bus Tuesday morning as our rural road was still not plowed & my little Ford Focus is so low to the ground.
Here’s the reason not much doing around here…Harmon has been getting, I’m afraid to admit, colicky. Merritt had TRUE COLIC for almost a year as a baby, so I don’t want to say Harmon has colic if he’s just having a string of bad days. I’m not sure what is going on at this point. He’s definitely possibly heading that way…every evening, like clockwork, for the last week he shrieks, screams, bawls, you name it, he’s not happy & wants us to know it for over three hours. He won’t nurse during these fits at all which isn’t helping. He’s been sleeping on me for most of the night, too. He will not sleep any other way…
Waking up is like exiting a tornado. I know we slept, but I feel worn out & obviously he does, too. He rubs his face on me all night & that leads to some rash flare-up by morning.
He seems to need constant attention all day in order to be happy. He does have some happy moments, but still no smiles.
Not much napping &, therefore, not much knitting.
Trying to enjoy the present with an eye to the future & fingers crossed we don’t enter true colic territory…I’ve been there, I would prefer no repeat visits!
