Day 3 - Monday, Sept 12.
Up at 4 A.M. and again at 9. Watched dolphins swim by.
Tyler's first day in the ocean. There are little pools knee deep created by a sand shelf so the waves are not to strong, so I took him in the water and he seemed interested. I would not say he enjoyed but but he did not hate it either. I tried to get him to nap in the beach tent but that was not happening so we headed back to the house. He got a bath in the the kitchen sink and after a good nursing session he took a nice long nap.
Non-sleepy nursing is still a no-go. Bedtime ritual is taking two hours every night. Tom starts out with giving him a few ounces from the bottle, then rocking and singing to him to get him to calm down. Then I come in after he is drowsy and nurse him to sleep. He then wakes up an hour later and I nurse him back to sleep on the other side.
Before bed Tom and I went in the hot tub. But we had to spray our heads and necks because of the mosquitoes.
The sleep deprivation is starting to catch up with me. I must take a nap during the day.
