what we've been up to

well, not a whole heck of a lot... lots of poopy diapers, lots of eating, lots of napping, lots of just kinda sitting around... oh and lots of playing and reading with max.

two days ago, i had a visit from amanda and eleni. that was a nice welcomed treat! she brought some fantastic looking dinner that i plan to pop in the oven this evening! thanks lady!

as of that evening, i made the decision to have andrew sleep in our bed for a little while so that i can get some sleep and he can work on getting his days and nights in the right place. so far so good. last night he only woke twice to nurse. i'm going to go forward with this method for a few more days then start to transition him to his crib after he nurses. because of this decision i feel like 100 bucks again. it's amazing what a little sleep will do for a person. prior to thursday night we had been sleeping on the couch and then i tried to put him into his crib while getting up to nurse and it was just a disaster and it made me miss out on a lot of needed sleep. i was a crabby, emotional mess and that's not good for anyone.

since not much else has been going on, here are some photos:

a little napping and a little reading

Cosleeping is a life saver those early days! I really don't think we would have survived trying to go straight to crib sleeping. I am glad to hear that it has been helpful to you in getting some sleep too.

Awww! What a wonderful family you have. Glad to hear that you are finally getting some sleep. Sleep is the best thing ever.

Indeed, cosleeping totally saved us in those early days (and not so early days) so I'm glad it's worked out for you. It's amazing how good you feel after real sleep. I'm glad everything is working out with your cuties!
