I am continually amazed with what I can accomplish with a little baby free time! A few days ago, I had about an hour solid of my husband holding the baby. I checked so many things off of my to do list that day. Today, Zoe actually went to sleep off of both of us at about 8:30. I have accomplished so much that I have an abundance of energy. Must relax soon! She will probably wake up shortly to eat which always makes me sleepy.
We had her one month check up today and she is thriving. The doctor was very happy with her (only fueled by breastmilk) weight gain. I’m so happy that it has gone well. We have started to give her a middle of the night bottle of breastmilk. We are hoping that this will make it easier to get her back to sleep and reduce the total awake time. I have to pump then, but it still should make it a little less sleep disturbing.
Now I will take this still-sleeping-baby time to update my to do list like should daily. Items to add include Christmas wrapping and learning how to install a car seat so I can transfer it to my Christmas day ride. Exciting stuff over here! Actually, the exciting things are already on my lists (yes, I have several). All smiles over at our house!
