On the Blog Again

I needed a break from all things technology related. My Kindergarten blog, Facebook, and I were on a break.

Cooper is smiling ALL the time, it is literally addictive for me. I've got hundreds of pictures of this little guy. With all that smiling you would think, Mommy must be doing great. For the most part, I am. I really like being at home with him, but there are times I long to be back at school, which then, makes me feel uber guilty. Also, sleep is becoming quite an issue in our house. Cooper is still just sleeping for about 2-3 hours at a time through the night. My husband is wonderful about wanting to do a nighttime feeding, which also makes me feel guilty because he has to get up and go to work...but anyway.

Mike will usually do either the 12:30 or the 4:00AM feeding; however, have I mentioned that my husband sleeps like a rock or that he can fall asleep in seconds? Yeah, and then there is me...the smallest sound wakes me up and there are times in can take me an hour to fall back asleep. So, every time Coop wakes up...I wake up. Also, I've got the added bonus that I cannot nap for the life of me (and apparently, this little nugget is just like me because his naps are about 30-45 minutes at a time)! I am EXHAUSTED. I know the newborn stage can't last forever, but seriously, I don't know how to get this little guy to sleep for longer. I try to fill him up, but his little tummy can only hold so much. My poor husband is a saint. I've been tired and really irritable.

  1. While the days go slowly now, I can tell you as the mother of a 23 year old that the years go quickly. Cooper is beautiful and although I miss your teacher blogging its really fun to see this blog. I think exhaustion is the hardest part of being a mommy. As my mom always told me...sleep when the baby does (much harder said than done:)
