Hi there! It's crazy busy in our house!
Our little guy is doing great and growing like a weed. I'm off for a total of 16 weeks and go back to work at the end of July. This weather has been fabulous in IL. We've been taking stroller walks in the neighborhood, which is great! I'm looking forward to getting my vegetable garden going next week too.
Anyone's baby have baby acne? Drake's is getting better now, but he had it bad for a few weeks.
How is everyone sleeping? Do you and your husbands/BF's take shifts in the night? When my hubby gets home from work I lay down for a few hours and then I take the middle of the night feedings (since I'm home all day and can catch a nap with the baby). Hubby is back to work so he needs to catch some good night sleep to function. He takes the early morning feeding so I can sleep in too. It works. What works for you?
aww thats great my little boy is growing like a weed as well hes about 10lbs now @ 5weeks! hesstartin to sleep a little longer and stay up a little longer during the dayi try to keep hom awake as long as i can with out hom getting cranky! big brother is really enjoying him hes such a big helper (most of the time).
isaiah didnt get baby acne so much but he does have a newborn rash that tends to come and go but i think it may ne related to the extreme heat here in florida so i try to keep him in as much as possible but i have to return to school next week as graduation in next month.
good thing you have have your husband to help. im single parent and "sperm donor" is not around very often so im doing it all on my own... get rough and frustrating sometimes but i manage.
Yep! Barely time to keep up w/ email while typing one-handed :) Baby girl is doing great, a feeding machine. She started getting baby acne a few days ago, poor thing. Hubby and I have a good arrangement- I feed the babe (thus doing many a solo night) while he does the cooking and housework. This was recommended by some friends who did the same- no point in having 2 tired parents. Hubby wears earplugs to bed as we have baby's Moses basket in our room. Bad thing about giving hubby the job of house husband- he cleans it in his own time ;) Oh well I'm still grateful for the help!
Well, hang in there girls! Hope you enjoyed your Mothers Day!
@ kai0912- you are to be admired to raise your baby on your own! You are a strong girl and your little boy will be proud of his Mommy when he gets older. Keep up the good job!
thanks jennifer its definately not the ideal situation but every mthing i do i so my boys can have a better future and hopefully wont follow in their "dads" footsteps
Hey girl! I have been quiet due to baby and a crashed computer. But all is well now. I have a brand new computer and Jalah is on a schedule where I can have time to log on. Hope all is well with everyone:)
