Due Date!

Here we are at my official due date: September 17th. My little Micah is already a week old!!! Seriously, where does time go? We have absolutely no routine going at my house right now. It's all just fly by the seat of my pants right now. Micah is starting to want to nurse more often now that my supply has come in and that really is putting a strain on my relationship with Isaiah. He gets really frustrated when he is trying to get my attention for something and I am glued to the couch with the baby. He is acting out because of this, getting into things he knows he shouldn't, just to see if it will get me to give up what I'm doing and pay attention to him. The overnight hours aren't as tough as I thought they would be, but they certainly aren't easy. I nurse Micah around 9:00 or so and then I go sleep in bed until he wakes up for another feeding, typically between 11:30 and midnight. Then I go back "on duty" and Evan goes to bed for the night. Last night I was able to get Micah back to sleep (on my chest though....) around 1:30, but the night before was a bit more difficult - he was up from 12:00 to 3:00 am! So far, the best luck I have with getting him to sleep during the night hours is on my chest while I lay on the couch. Certainly not uncomfortable by any means, but I do miss my bed! Hopefully soon we can start getting him more used to sleeping in the Pack n Play or the crib so I can go back to sleeping in bed. But, for now, we're still in survival mode! I spend most of the day in my jammies and just take things one feeding at a time! All part of the transition I suppose. We'll get back to a more normal, scheduled existance eventually!
