Day in the Life (May 2017)

May 22, 2017 Our night was somewhat better than the few before it, but Elizabeth still woke up a few times and was upset. When she got up at 5:45, I figured that she'd stay up after nursing, and I was right. We got up for the day at 6:00 and said good morning to… Continue reading Day in the Life (May 2017)

Day in the Life (April 2017)

April 24, 2017 I absolutely did not want to get up early this morning (lol) but I had to so I could take Stephen to work and then drive to my post-op appointment in the afternoon. It's as if Elizabeth knew the time, too, because at 5:28 she woke to breastfeed. When I finished feeding her, I got up and… Continue reading Day in the Life (April 2017)

Day in the Life (March 2017)

March 23, 2017 Stephen woke me at ten after five, much to my displeasure (ha!), so I could take him to work an hour later. I had my cup of coffee while reading a few things online. My lower back and abdomen were bothering me, it was sort of like menstrual cramps but seeing that… Continue reading Day in the Life (March 2017)

Day in the Life (February 2017)

February 18, 2017 I didn't get much sleep last night from 11pm-2ish because I like having my bed to myself and I kept putting her back in her crib. Elizabeth wakes frequently in her crib (which is still right next to my bed) but as soon as she's with me, we rest, so I brought her to bed… Continue reading Day in the Life (February 2017)

Little Elizabeth doesn't stay in one size for long. One day, her clothes fit fine, the next I try to put her pants on but her chubby thighs won't let me and I know it's time to move up. So I buy the next size up and I think, "Ok, now I have enough clothes for her," and… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 2/19/17

Thoughts & Happenings 2/14/17

It's that time of year again, when gardeners are daydreaming and planning of the coming year's crops. I definitely do not consider myself a gardener as I've only ever grown some very easy flowers in the ground and a handful of vegetables in pots! Regardless, I am daydreaming and planning along with them. ^_^ I… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 2/14/17

Elizabeth seems to be dropping her late afternoon/early evening catnap, and going down to having just a morning nap and an afternoon nap after twelve hours at night. I've been attempting to use this to my advantage and get her on a schedule. I wake her somewhere between 8 and 8:30 in the morning and… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 02/12/17
