Week 3 has come and gone with the blink of an eye.
Some nights there are hourly feedings (ugh) and some nights there are 3 hour stretches of sleep (hurray!). And even though at times I can feel incredibly exhausted, just seeing a photo like this with his little soft angel face makes it all worth it. :)
This is just a little peek from the photos I took this weekend for his birth announcement. If I can get those out in the mail this week, I'll feel I accomplished something other than my current daily goals for myself: eat, sleep, shower…lol. :)
Special thanks to blog commenter Andrea for her suggestion on the split shifts for night-time…we started that this week and I feel like a brand new mama most mornings…it's amazing what a 3-4 hour uninterrupted sleep stretch (and the kind where you're fully asleep and not half-way asleep to listen for the baby monitor) can do for you. I've been pumping bottles so Brandon can handle the feeding which I think is great in more than just giving me some rest…it's giving him the opportunity for one-on-one time with the baby himself…or as he calls it, "Daddy time."
Speaking of which, I better head off to bed so I can rest up for the start of my 2am shift. :)
