My week with Kylee, Conner and Nixon, is quickly coming to an end. She has agreed to let me go home on Saturday. Conner's mom, Micci, will step in to take my place. She is here visiting from Seattle and will be staying until the next Saturday. I know she is so excited to get to spend a few days with them too.
I've had a great time being here and helping them out with Nixon. Having a baby is such an adjustment, but over time things just seem to fall into place.
Kylee and Conner's sleeping habits have been a bit crazy in the past. They have always enjoyed staying up really late but then making up for it by sleeping in really late. Apparently little Nixon is used to that because that's just what he wants to do too. He's a little sleepy head during the day and ready to play once the lights go out. Luckily he hasn't been onery, just AWAKE.
Kylee tells me that we can't spoil him and so he's slept in my arms the past three nights. I guess if he ends up spoiled, they'll have to deal with it after I'm gone. I just figure that's a good way to get him to sleep and to make sure mommy and daddy are getting good and rested for what lies ahead.
I have to say that I've really enjoyed being a stay-at-home grandma this week. I'm going to have a hard time going back to work. Luckily next week is a short one, that way I'll be able to work myself back into my real life slowly.
We've had a few visitors come by, which has been fun. Kaydee and Launey brought the kids up on Monday. They were cute with him and Ellie was dying to get her hands on him. Yesterday Shayda had a meeting in Logan so Kristy came up with her. It was great to have them all here to oooh and aaah over him.
