One Month Birthday

James is one month old today.

I can't believe how much and how fast he is changing. He is getting so much fatter and being able to eat more and more at one time. We are definitely starting to get into more of a routine, understanding each other better, sleeping better, etc.

James goes back to work on Monday fulltime. He went in for the mornings on Thursday and Friday, but that was easy, because (lil) James usually sleeps from 9:30/10 until 12/1 . . . so I only needed to take care of him by myself for a couple of hours, which I've done before when James has gone shopping or out running errands anyway. So Monday, being by myself with him all day, is going to be pretty different--the first time that has happened . . . I know it will be fine but it seems daunting right now!

But nursing is getting easier and easier and James is sleeping better and better, taking more predictable naps, so I'm sure we'll get into a good routine in a week or two. And even though I'm nervous, I'm also excited to find a new normal with James as part of our life.

Good luck to you! I pray it is an easy transition.

This is one of those things I just don't understand...My DH had no time off to speak of when our twins were born, so he brought me home from the hospital with 1 twin on a Thursday evening at about 9 pm, and he had to be at work at 8 am the next morning. I got up when he left, pulled myself and Bailey together and drove myself to the hospital to see Anna. (I wasn't taking any pain meds after my c-section so I was able to drive.)

1 Week later, I was able to bring Anna home (picture me trying to carry 2 babies, an oxygen tank and a diaper bag to the van 9 days after a c-section - not a pretty sight! Fortunately the nurse at the check in counter had pitty on me and helped!) on my own. The following day, the three of us went out Christmas shopping, as I had been on bedrest since Aug and had NOTHING ready!

It'll be nerve-wracking, but fine I'm sure! You'll just find a new normal :)
