I haven’t posted here in a while so I thought I’d check in…
Nights have still been really hard. I think she is getting better, at least a little more predictable and she is stretching out her feedings a little more too. But it’s not quick enough for her mama. I’m still sleep deprived and some days I feel crazy from lack of sleep. It’s not even “tired” or even “exhausted” anymore, it’s just completely insane. Any moms who have been there/done that will understand what I mean!
I got some information about my 20 year high school reunion today. I am thinking we will probably be in the UP for it, but I’m not sure yet how to work out the logistics. I will need to either go home to nurse Sophie or find a place to pump, because she will still be exclusively breastfed in July and I won’t be able to go that long without either pumping or nursing. I am sure we will be able to work something out, I might attend part of it but not all of it. I actually don’t even know yet if we’ll be up there… but it might be nice, it’s kind of a milestone year. I don’t feel that old, it’s funny! It’s hard to imagine it’s already been 20 years.
My husband has a 4 day weekend now for Easter. I’ve been waiting for this weekend ever since he went back to work after Sophie was born!
My dad is coming for a visit next week so that will be nice. I don’t think we’ve seen him since last summer.
Sophie is 6 weeks old now and is just a chunk! I need to get more pictures of her. I just got some but she is sleeping so I’ll need to get more once she wakes up again. She’s got lots of chins and big meaty thunder thighs and I love them! She’s definitely getting plenty to eat! I still have oversupply problems though, and she seems to struggle with that daily… poor baby. Oh well, I know that once she gets older she will come to expect it and probably even like it…
Oh and now my cat (the scabby one) is missing the tip of one of her ears. So it’s off to see the vet tomorrow. It looks like it’s healed up ok but since she doesn’t go outside, I can’t imagine what happened???
