Wrapped up the semester, been home with Zach-o for a week, and I got a nap today! Weehoo. Things have been going very well with the newest addition. He’s quite the sleeper. I say all of the following while knocking on wood. So far, he’s the best sleeper of the three which is saying a lot since the other two were GREAT sleepers. Timothy had slept through the night by 4 weeks hold, Emily by 6 weeks. Zach already sleeps 5 hours most nights. Today for the first time he’s finishing bottles (first time, I am aware of). He finished at least 2 and maybe three. I am totally amazed by this run of luck we’ve had. Either we have the sleeper gene or we’re the most amazing parents ever.
I have wrapped up the fall semester and there is only one remaining semester during which I will be addressed MR. Franklin. I try to dress it up a little but in reality what that means is that I have an enormous amount of work to finish on my dissertation. I suppose it will go well but I need to buckle down, or is it knuckle down? Starting tomorrow I really am going to be focusing on the work that needs to be done related to writing the dissertation and begin preparation on filling the remaining “gaping hole”: comprehense error statement.
In reference to the opening statement of this entry, I would like to comment on a very interesting phenomenon that occurred during my nap. I used earplugs to sleep and during my dreams I was unable to hear anything, that is, I believe I was hearing impaired inside of my dreams. I thought that was interesting the my subconscious (or unconscious) mind connected to the earplugs.
