The baby is a month old (well now a month and a few days). We survived the 1st month. This sleep schedule sucks, though. We are working up to getting him to sleep 4 hours between feedings, but it’s still tough. He gets me up at 6 or 6:30 for his AM feeling and then we’re up. J is still asleep at 10:30 AM. I let him sleep because he doesn’t sleep well on a normal basis, but worse right now because of baby’s schedule. He also has to go back to work in about 2 weeks. He will take leave in Nov and Dec (and maybe a couple weeks in January). He’s such a great dad and husband. We are truly blessed to have him
Baby is now 9 lbs!!!! Because of the gestational diabetes, they thought he would be 9 lbs at birth. Thankfully he was not. He was a little peanut at 6 lbs 13 oz. It’s been amazing being a mom, though. He is so cute. To watch him grow and change is just such an exciting experience.
Baby is asleep now. I know I should sleep when he does, but I need to eat and my friend is supposed to come over to meet him sometime around 11.
Have a great day!
