Busy Busy Busy

Lincoln still doesn't sleep at night. Oh, he'll sleep the day away, but come 1AM, he decides to wake me up for a late night snack and then keeps me up usually until about 4 or 5AM. There are times when I want to pull my hair out, but then he does something really cute, and then I turn to goo and basically allow him to torture me with his crying all night long. I hear this passes...maybe I'll be able to sleep through the night by the time he turns 2!

Because I don't get any sleep at night, I have resorted to sleeping throughout the day. So between feeding Lincoln (and myself if I remember!) I pretty much don't have time for anything else. How do other moms go back to work?! But I have managed to fit in Lincoln's first pediatrician appointment, a newborn photo shoot, a kids consignment sale and his first bath! Now you can see why I haven't updated the blog until now!

Lincoln's first pediatrician appointment went really well. As of Friday, he weighed 5lbs, 9oz which means he gained 2oz in 2 days! He is also 18 3/4in long, so he grew 3/4 of an inch since Sunday night! The doctor said that his growth for a 6 week old baby born at 30 weeks was amazing. According to her, Lincoln doesn't act or look like a preemie his age should. That's great news! Of course, we already knew that our kid was amazing. He is already holding his head up for long periods of time, which seems very odd since he's only 6 weeks old...not to mention that the doctors told us that he would probably be behind in his milestones since he was 10 weeks early. For some reason, I don't think Lincoln will be as far behind as the doctors said he would be!

In the meantime, everyone warned us that boys will pee on you while they're being changed. Andrew got to experience this phenomenon 3 times on Saturday...all within an hour! Needless to say, Lincoln's first bath on Saturday night was well deserved.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

  6. I see that my wonderful friend Cindy left a great post about you looking like me. Yea you know that you hate it when people tell you that, especially if they tell you that I look to young to be your Mother. And now you are a Mother and I am a grandmother. Love you baby, you never cease to amaze me and I am so totally proud of you.
    Love, Mom
