About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Hoping for a Repeat Performance

While the first few nights with Norah were tough, each night since has been an improvement, and so far, last night was her best night ever.

She slept from 8:30-11:30, then we went through the whole diaper, feeding, rocking routine, and she slept again from midnight-3, and then we repeated the above, and she slept again from 3:30-6 and then from 6:30-8. It. was. awesome.

So, if she can do a schedule like this until she gets to the point of sleeping through the night, I can most certainly live with it. Cross your fingers for me that last night wasn't a fluke!

As for the daytime, we're enjoying another smooth day. Right now, she's snoozing on my lap while I simultaneously blog and get caught up on last night's episode of "Top Chef."

that does seem like a good pattern. when they are first born, the stomach is only about the size of a golf ball. it doesn't hold very much food, which is why they wake up every 2 hours. as she grows, the stomach can hold more food, and she will sleep longer. before you know it you will get to sleep for 4 hours straight!

Yeah, yeah - what's her 5K time?

You're a rock star with a rock star kid. :o)

It'll get better each night. Then one day you'll wonder where the time went!

N.D. said...

I agree with shannon!! sounds like it is going great!

MN Mom said...

As long as she doesn't have colic or acid reflux-consider yourself lucky. When they cry and can't be consoled that is a heartbraker. So happy things are going good.

Sounds like all is going well. Way to multitask.

Oh good! I'm glad to hear she's been good for you so far. Hopefully it's a trend that continues.

We've had a couple of rough nights over here -- I'm hoping Norah is sending good sleepy vibes to Liam!

Prooves you are a smart momma! I had to slap a co-worker around 20 years ago. They're two week old baby was already sleeping through the night. I told him to wake that damn baby up and feed it!!! LOL...

Laurel said...

Oh my God, that's a good night?!!?!? I'm in trouble when I have kids.

Seriously. it sounds like you're really getting the hang of this. An old pro, for sure.

JojaJogger said...

WTG Norah (and Jess and Jerry) you guys are becoming pros. (also LOL @ Jamoosh)

Aka Alice said...

That's pretty good for two weeks. At least it seems like a schedule is forming...yay!

RunnerGirl said...

Yea for getting into a sleeping routine!

lifestudent said...

She might have a natural schedule ... which would be awesome for you. Might be a sign that you can start "sleep training" early, and you will have a through-the-night sleeper before you know it :)

Sounds like things are going well. Hope she continues to sleep well for you!
