Crossing our fingers tonight!!

October 6, 2008 at 5:46 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 6 Comments

Well our little man has found his pipes!! The last 2 nights have been, well lets just say they have been hard. šŸ™‚ We were up about every 30 mins last night. His nights and days are still so mixed up. Finally 6am rolled around and I took August to my mom and she kept him while Steven and I caught up in some much needed sleep! I don’t know what I would do without my mom here lately! She has taken him so much the last couple of days. Even though we are not sleeping so well I can honestly say I am having the time of my life! I love figuring out his little personality and finding out what works and does not work for him. It brings me to tears to think about how much my love for him is growing daily. He is so precious to me.

If you have tried to call me, I am so sorry. I think I left my cell phone charger in Austin. I can’t find it anywhere and we haven’t had time to get a new one. Hopefully we will get a new one tomorrow. We might try to venture out and see people tomorrow!!

With the last 2 nights under our belts we did run to babies r us today to see what we could find to help him sleep tonight. He has a really hard time not being held. (This kinda makes my heart melt- he KNOWS who his mama and daddy are:)) There is not lack of holding him in this house!! Well tonight we bought the “Swaddle Me” wrap to make him nice and snug and we also bought the infant positioner to hold him tight. We are crossing our fingers and seeing if they are going to work. I love him so much and I have to keep reminding myself that he is only 3 days old! He is doing so great. He has been such a joy.

I have felt wonderful today! I have such a peace about all this time until the 23rd. It has allowed me to love on him with all of my heart. When I can tell that my mind is worrying about loosing him I have been able to automatically shut those thoughts off. That has been a huge blessing. I will be honest and say that all of this time until the 23rd is hard and I wish we could just skip until the end but that wouldn’t teach me to trust God would it? šŸ™‚ Nevertheless we make the best out of it and honor A with what we committed to her that we would do. She asked us to love him as our own and I can promise you we are doing that!!! It feels good to honor her.

I will leave you of our little man and his getup for going to sleep tonight! I just laid him down and he has made it 20 mins without a peep all by himself! That is a great accomplishment!

  4. I wish I could offer lots of great advice but 3 weeks into this and we are still try to figure it out ourselves. Zoe’s days and nights have been mixed up as well but it is getting easier to keep her up during the day now so hopefully we’re on the up and up. We’ve been using the same two items you just purchased, the swaddling thing is just wonderful, what a great invention. What a blessing to have your moms help. Can we come stay with you too? šŸ™‚ Hope to see you soon!

  5. You are so lucky, my KJ HATED to be swaddled. He would fight until his little arms just popped right out of the Swaddle Me. šŸ™‚ He’s always been a really, really good sleeper tho, so we cannot complain! Sounds like you are doing great. šŸ˜‰

  6. We also used both of these products with Ryan! It seemed to help alot! Both of my girls loved to be swaddled. Hope you get more rest soon!
