goal achieved

after a few nights on the couch with andrew in the pack and play, we have finally got our bed back and a baby sleeping in his crib. i missed sleeping in my bed. it seemed like it had been weeks since i had done so.... maybe it's because prior to delivery, i was hard to even get comfortable there.... i dunno. it doesn't matter now though because well, two nights down and we aren't looking back. YAY! his schedule is still morphing a bit but it's not flip flopped and he's at least sleeping where he's supposed to be and so am i. have i ever mentioned how much i LOVE my bed? i really truly love my bed and was missing it like you have no idea.... as of this morning, i've been back in bed for two nights and it feels wonderful! Yay! andrew seems to be waking once in the middle of the night after nursing around 10:30/11 pm. the first night he woke at 2:30 and didn't go back down until 4.... yipes... but last night he nursed like crazy all evening (i'm assuming this was his cluster feeding) then woke at 2, nursed for a good 20 minutes solid, then went right back to sleep until 6:30. then nursed for about 20 minutes from both sides and has been sleeping since. :)

for whatever reason while i nursed max, i didn't have anything in the nursery to do while i was in there with him.. IE read. thus i often dozed off and i also might have rushed a few feedings at that late hour. with andrew, i've decided that i need to read. something that i haven't done in forever! i have a book requested from the library, but i don't expect that to be available for a while.... so in the meantime i started reading Freakonomics last night. i started this book a while back but quickly put it down because i needed to start reading pregnancy books. and those took precedence at the time. so far i've completed the first chapter again, and i'm enjoying it. i haven't read for pleasure in a LONG time. i have the Happiest Baby on the Block requested from the library, as suggested by my pediatrician. so i'll be looking forward to reading that. however i would like to throw a novel into the mix as well. anyone out there have any suggestions? I enjoy light books, jane green is a favorite and others like her are also enjoyed. i also like grisham, but i'm not sure i'm in the mood for that sort of book at this time. really, i guess my likes are kinda all over the place.... just nothing about killing and scary plot lines... suggestions are welcome!

today, i'm headed to the mall, my mom and i and andrew of course are heading out for some much needed shopping! yay! i have been looking forward to this for a few days! wish me luck in that i find some good deals and stuff that i actually like!
