We are still trucking along here! Nolan turned 3 weeks old yesterday. And so far (and I may regret writing this, ha!)...he is my best baby. Not sure if that's just his temperament....if it's because he's the 3rd and so he has to be easy going with our somewhat busy schedules....or if since this is my 3rd, I'm not stressing my baby out all the time like I know I did with my first? Or God just knew this was all I could handle. :) Either way- I'm soaking him up.
I asked Geoff the other day if he thought I was taking more pictures of him than I did with he other 2. He said no. But then I started thinking- and I think I do! This is my first baby with my smartphone...so just in phone pictures alone I have so many. You usually hear that by the third there are less pictures because there is less time (and that could still end up being true)...but I think for now...I'm taking so many pictures because I don't want to forget how little. How this is probably my last baby. And I know first hand just how fast the time flies.
Nolan @ 3 weeks:
-still napping well during the day. we are having more awake time, but some days he still does seem more drowsy than others.
-I try putting him 'down for the night' between 8pm and 9pm...and if successful....he will usually wake up only 2 more times in the night around 12-1am and then again around 5am. So at night...he's still going between 3-5 hours between feeds. Most of the time he will let me lay him right back down (a few nights he's a little more difficult and needs to be held and such and it takes me an hour or 2 to get him back down). I know I do complain to Geoff about my lack of sleep, but really- I should not. He's really such a good baby and I know it could be so much worse!
And he spent a little time sunbathing yesterday. Maybe this will help a little with his jaundice? He was so drowsy yesterday that he actually fell asleep in the bouncy seat for the first time. And he stayed asleep in that bouncy seat until his sisters came and started talking to/messing with him. ;)
