BTW, 90% reduction is on hiatus for the last week+.  I’ll resume tracking tomorrow, and maybe can go back and get ballpark figures once Chico starts sleeping more.  Yes, we are calling the baby Chico, sometimes Cheeks, or as Lucy prefers, Cheeky.  Overheard on Monday after school–Lucy’s classmate comes running out of the building and up to her mother, exclaiming, ‘Lucy’s baby is named Chico!’
