4 weeks today!

I can't believe it's already been 4 weeks, time does fly. Sorry I haven't posted many updates. The lack of updates is mostly due to the fact that if I actually have 10 minutes when I'm not holding or feeding her I usually choose to eat or something, instead of get on the computer ; )
However, I 've managed to get in a a shower and delete some things from my e-mail inbox and I'm now typing as fast as I can to get a few words in before she wakes. I can already hear her stirring. So far Jessie is great and Jamie is great also. I will let you know more stats when we have our appointment next week. So far, if she is awake she wants to nurse. I will take this up with her Dr. I don't want her eating more than she should, but then what can you do. The number one question people ask... how is the sleep going. Well.... again I have another child that prefers sleep on her belly and by prefer, I mean she will actually stay asleep for more than 1 minute if I place her down on her belly. Yes, I know I'm not supposed to, I only do it during the day when I can keep an eye on her and really I try not to do it at all. During the night she sleeps really well if I sleep with her. Other wise I end up staying awake for many hours during the night. For example the other night she slept on her own until about 3 am, than after staying up with her till about 5 am I finally fell asleep on the couch, holding her. This is a very typical evening for me. Than Jamie is up at 7 (if I'm lucky) (this morning was 6:15am). I feel awful that I don't have a better system in place, it's hard to figure it out when your eyes are stinging from tired in the middle of the night. I need to go buy the book I read when we learned how to put Jamie down. I'll figure out something...

hey - you need to learn how to blog and nurse at the same time man! ;-)

I think your "system" for sleeping with the two kids sounds great!! whatever works is my philosophy.... don't worry about a schedule, they'll set one for you on their own, when they're ready :)
