The Latest

My body finally had enough - I started getting sick the end of last week. I was surprised it took 4 weeks before it decided to shut down - must be a mom thing, 'cause I never do well with little sleep! Frustration was setting in! No sleep and now I'm sick! Then Sunday night he went 4 1/2 hours between feedings and then another 3 during the night. Last night he did 4 1/2 and 4! YEAH!!! I'm really hoping this will become habit. We've done 4 hours a couple times before, but randomly. I think I actually got a total of 7 hours last night!! WOW!:)

Caedmon had a doctor's appointment yesterday. He is one fast growing boy! He weighed 11 lbs. and measured 23 3/4 inches long! No wonder my arms feel like they're going to fall off! Dr. said he's above average for his length. He's just about out grown his 0 - 3 month clothes. I want to know how clothes are supposed to fit a baby for a 3 month period of time?! They grow too fast to wear the same thing for three months!

The house continues to get dirtier and I'm trying my best to ignore it - very difficult for me! I'm barely keeping up with laundry and dishes! How do you nurse, change diapers, sleep when he sleeps(that's what I've been told to do) and get anything done around the house?! How do moms go back to work?! And I only have one child - I can't even imagine more! Moms are an amazing bunch of woman! I have lots to say to anyone who has negative remarks about being a stay-at-home mom! You think we have it easy 'cause we don't go out and work - I've never known so much work!

Anyway...that's the latest. Now, I'm off to join my sleeping son...hopefully. I think he has a radar that goes off as soon as mommy lays down, and it tells him to wake up!:/

Keelie - it does get easier. Both my children slept 8 - 10 hours by the time they were 6 weeks old and I had to go back to work. At 11+ pounds he will be doing great as far as sleeping thru the night.

Don't worry about the housework, that is one of things that I had to let go when I became a working mother. It does get done.

Congratulations on your new little one.

I agree, don't worry about the housework. It's not as important as your little one. Congrats on the weight and height! Christopher isn't much bigger (14lbs, 24 inches on his 4 month checkup). Don't worry, he will be sleeping better through the night. It got better at the 8 week mark, it's like they are able to hold more and it sustains them longer.
