it's been a long week of late nights, late mornings, and a lot of relaxation. after weeks of spending every single day on some sort of grand adventure, it's been nice to spend some time just hanging around the house. holden is on this weird 10:30 PM to 10:30 AM sleep schedule and while i'm kind of enjoying the late nights because we get to adventure with mr.b after work (and i obviously don't mind sleeping in in the mornings), i find myself staying up anywhere from 2 AM to 4 AM in the mornings just to get a few hours to myself. i think a week of late nights has finally caught up with me as i'm struggling to compose this post. holden is already running, refusing to let me even hold his hand to help him keep his balance. the recovery process of a child is pretty astonishing (what a different story it would be had this happened to me). we are heading down to la for the weekend and looking forward to a warm weekend on the beach with some friends and hopefully some more sleep for this tired mama.
