Happy one week!

{ Wednesday, July 08, 2009 }
Yesterday was the bean's one week birthday. Its hard to believe that its been a whole week already--it feels like one long sleepless day. Yesterday we called in reinforcements (aka Grandma) to help us figure out how to get this bean to sleep. So far, so good. I know the poor kid was exhausted and needed some rest but her amateur parents couldn't figure out how to get her to close her eyes and stop fighting sleep. We also can't figure out how to have distinct nursing sessions throughout the day, rather than one continuous 24 hour feeding, but one step at a time. (If I hear the term "human pacifier" one more time, I may become ill. Yes, I am pacifier. Right now, I believe that is my job. I think she'll be weaned before college.)

I'm desperately trying to find the time to finish her birth story, but how about I share some beany goodness in the meantime?
My last belly picture at 41 1/2 weeks. Already, I can't remember being that big.

Rockin' the sweater mama made.

She really is SO friggin cute! And the sweater is beautiful, too!

About that sleep thing... sounds like you're keeping her awake during the day ok, but you need to turn off the tv at night and let her get some shut-eye kids! Late night tv isn't good for little beans!

As for the feeding... nope, got nothing for ya!

(But since you're obviously awake, just keep blogging so we can live vicarously thru u on this whole first time parenting crap! :) )

OH and happy 1st week!

It's rough, glad you have back up to call in as needed. We've been there and it does get better. She's beautiful.
