This baby thing sure is hard work!

Now that Cole is 8 days old, the exhaustion is catching up to me. For the most part, he sleeps well. On a typical night, I get up at 12 a.m., 3 a.m., and 5 a.m. However, the 5 a.m. feeding typically turns into a fussy 2 hour session. Dave's been helpful at 5 a.m. - usually taking over around 6, but it's still tiring.

I needed to get out of the house today, so Dave's mom came over to watch Cole. It was a wonderful hour! The best thing of all was that I missed Cole about a half hour into our outing, so it was nice to get back home and snuggle with him.

I think I've recharged my batteries to last until at least next Tuesday. And, best of all, I can drive again by then, so I'll be able leave by myself between feedings if another baby break is needed. It's pretty amazing coming home to the cutest baby ever, so I'll have to give it a try again!
