Four Weeks Down

The Papoosekin is one month old tomorrow. Part of me feels like it went so fast, and part of me feels like thanking God that we're one month closer to getting more sleep. Speaking of which, last night was the first night that the Husband got to sleep through all the feedings. Which is not to say that he didn't get woken up by the wee one; he did. But he didn't have to get up and do anything and was able to go right back to sleep. This made me feel a bit bitter, to be perfectly honest. I was truly happy that he was able to sleep, but there is a bit of a feeling of "But when do I get to sleep?!?" I know, I know, in good time, Grasshopper.

While we wait for that blessed day, in the meantime, there are one-month birthday cupcakes to enjoy. These were chocolate with cream cheese/chocolate chip centers. Not so good without frosting. With the frosting, delicious. Although, the Husband really prefers a fluffy cupcake and these were pretty dense. Almost muffin-dense. Sorry no pics of the inside. We got interrupted mid-celebration by some projectile spit-up.

Apparently, reaching one month of age inspires one to try out new sleeping positions...
And allows one to reach the enjoying-the-sling milestone. Yay! So happy to finally get my butt off the couch and be able to do at least some things around the house. The Husband even managed to vacuum yesterday with her in the sling. It put her to sleep.

I have definitely heard that the vacuum puts babies to sleep...in fact, I think my mother used to actually run the vacuum purely to get my one sister to fall asleep. She'd just put E. in her crib and plug in the vacuum. Use it, wise Grasshopper!

I find it almost impossible to believe that she is ALREADY a month old. DANG!

The vacuum, washing machine, and dishwasher were also our best friends while putting J to sleep in the sling. Doesn't it feel good to move around? Happy 1 month birthday!

I so wanted to call on her one month b.day but work was sooooo insane I did not know my own name. Where has the time gone !!!! She is beautiful, I love the cheeks. I know with S & M anything electronic that made noise was on when then went to bed, my mom said it was better for then to be able to sleep with noise. it seemed to work. All breast feeding mom's understand your feelings of when do I sleep, I'm glad to hear all 3 are doing well and D is feeling better. Love and miss you all M
