I'm still a little stunned that the Harry Potter series is over. That's all I will say about it, for fear of saying something that will make someone think I've spoiled them - if you've also finished it, feel free to email me, but please don't say anything in the comments that might be considered spoilers. I had a difficult time enough of it as it was this morning at Anju's doctor's appointment. My doctor kept discussing the book at the parts she was up to, and it was all I could do to keep an impassive face so that I didn't give anything away.
So, on Friday morning, Mojavi went to Borders bright n' early at 8am to stand in line for our wristband/ticket thingies. Thanks to her, we got in the first color group - orange. That evening I dressed up in my Professor McGonagall costume, but X made me take off the hat as I went to the car so the neighbors wouldn't see me. I arrived at Borders at 10:30, carefully packed Anju in the Baby Bjorn, entered the madhouse at Borders and promptly ran into one of our neighbors.
We ended up being in the first 25 or so folks to get our books, so I was at my car by 12:15am. The rest of the weekend, I chained Arun to the coffee table and threw him scraps of raw meat while keeping the TV on full blast so I couldn't hear his screams of boredom. I kept Anjali glued to one boob and read with one hand - all 2 lb, 15 oz of it which killed my wrists and I lived in fear of dropping it on Anjali's soft, soft head. Yeah, I have a mild case of carpal tunnel and CPS should probably be called for a serious case of neglect, but hey - I finished the book and that's what was really important, no?
In other news...............speaking of Anjali's doctor's appointment - she weighs 8 lbs, 9 oz! The goal was to gain back to her birth weight by 2 weeks - she did that and more, so I was glad. I wasn't surprised, she's a good nurser. We have a good routine now - she nurses throughout the day and then I top her tank off at 11pm before I go to bed. She gets up around 3:30am for a feeding and then doesn't get up again until about 7:00am. I have NO COMPLAINTS. I can live with that kind of schedule.
Okay - both kids have clean diapers and are fast asleep. I'd best use this time to get some things done.
