Sam is 4 weeks old today, but other than that, I don’t have a lot to say about her. She continues to eat, sleep, poop and pee. Sometimes she’s relaxed and engaged. Sometimes, she’s inconsolably cranky. In the tradition of Heather Armstrong, I will start a monthly journal — a newsletter to Sam, but that won’t come out for another couple of days — on her one month birthday.
Mom and dad are starting to get into a little more of a routine, but there’s still not enough sleep to go around. There are still concerns about weight gain and milk production. There’s alway something to worry about, though it only gets the better of us on rare occasions. We’re still eating, feeding, cuddling and cooing, and, on rare occasion, sleeping.
This time, the switch away from daylight savings affected us possibly least of all. Who cares if it’s 2:30AM or 3:30AM when one feeding stops and we have an hour and a half of sleep before the next one begins. Sometimes, it’s light outside. Sometimes, it’s dark. Sometimes, we’re hungry, so we eat. Sometimes, we’re sleepy and we… no, wait. We’re always sleepy. Still, you get the idea. Still, it’s a nice (if kind of cool) day out today, so we’re going to go for another short little walk. I hope all are having a nice weekend.
