Addison's friend Isla came to visit us one day :)

The past ten days have run together. I'm pretty sure I haven't really slept since I went into labor. Addison is a big night owl and loves to constantly nurse. Finding time for anything right now is nearly impossible! I love her to pieces but I'm hoping that it DOES get better like everyone says.

I am just about finished her birth story! That's next.

Having never had a baby, I have no idea if it gets better but my fingers are crossed for you!

Heather said...

Oh she's so cute!! And yes, I remember those first few weeks (months) very well. It's tough running on very little sleep, but yes- it does get better. Most babies tend to start sleeping longer stretches (4-6 hours) around 6 weeks. Hang in there!!

Precious!! It DOES get better...I think about after two or two and a half weeks my little Addison (who is now 9 1/2 months!) got to a better routine. Lean on your hubs and fam as much as you need to. I know how hard it is to let people be helpful.

She's beautiful! Those first few weeks can be really rough. Hubby and I split up the nighttime and did it in shifts once we could swing it with her feedings, and that helped a LOT. I agree with everyone who says that things really change around 6 weeks. I know it feels like 6 weeks will never.get.here. but they will. Hang in there. And, I hope someone has told you this - do NOT worry about establishing good sleep habits now. It makes NO difference until they're about four months or so. Seriously. Do whatever, whenever, however, you can to get you both to sleep as much as possible. I was all concerned about "laying her down drowsy but awake" and stuff like that - TOTALLY DOES NOT MATTER when they're this young.

Anyways, looking forward to the birth story. Hope you can get some shut-eye soon!

Like I said, she's gorgeous! A tiny angel :)

I can't wait to hear your birth story - I'm 36 weeks and getting close - it's always nice to hear from mom's who have just been through it.

Good luck with everything!

Oh my Jeska, she is just precious, gorgeous photos, glad everything went well, apart from the long painful labour. How wonderful your husband got so much time off though, what a huge help to you.
