??? Questions ??? 7

What effect does the leaking have on Joshua, will it replenish itself and is the wrapping helping to reduce the leaking. How is O coping with all the attention on J? What is a typical routine for you guys?

Effect? He's not bothered by it.

Will it replentish? I think so. He loses enough that we should notice a size difference in his cele - but there isn't one.

Is the wrapping helping to reduce the leaking? No. He still leaks the same. Perhaps it does reduce it, but because it's different that when he first leaked, it's difficult to tell how much it would leak (at present) without the wrappings.

How is Oceana coping with the attention to Joshua? Very well. We try to involve her in "helping" and holding him, getting diapers, "going to see baby" all the time, and spending time with her. She's enough of a selfish toddler that she doesn't get it when "Mommy can't pick you up" or "Mommy can't hold you right now" or "Mommy's feeding Joshua, i can't get you a snack now. please wait".

What's our typical routine? Hahaha. I'm trying to figure out what routine's going to look like. I'm not a routine person. However - an average day looks like this.

6:30-7:00 - Oceana gets up and has breakfast.
7:30-8:00 - Wake up Joshua and feed him.
8:00-10:00 - Hanging around, changing the diapers, changing the clothes. Joshua sleeps.
10:00-12:00 - Oceana plays, I blog, laundry... etc.
12:00 - Lunch, feed Joshua
Afternoon - Hanging out, doing "stuff", Oceana takes naps occasionally.
I try to take a walk every few days. Hopefully more this week.
Late afternoon - Making dinner
6:30 and beyond - we're TV people. I make no apologies.
8:00 - Oceana's bedtime.
11:00 - Last feed for Joshua.
12:00 - 1:00 - I'm usually just getting to bed....

Matt runs every day and lifts weights every other day. So that's about an hour and a half out of the day. Usually in the morning - sometimes in the evenings.

Thanks for the reminder - I've been wanting to see what it is that I accomplish in a day and multiply it. I feel like a very lazy person, a very unhealthy person, a very unfit person, an impatient mum, and a shut-down-type person. It's gonna change.
