Porter at Twenty Three Weeks

Friday, February 27, 2015


Same old story this week - sleep issues, fussiness, constantly wants to sit up, move, jump and have stuff in his mouth.  Loves his big brother so hard.  Loves to be read to and loves to nurse. Is enjoying baby foods every day.  Nothing new to report!

Porter at Twenty Two Weeks

Friday, February 20, 2015


These weeks are blurring together and seem to be going by in a flash lately. I can't believe it's almost March and this boy is nearing 6 Months Old.  He wants to sit so badly, and is working on it every day.  Doesn't like tummy time and gets annoyed and bored quickly.  Same sleep issues - up a ton between 9 and Midnight and then up every 2 or 3 hours, sometimes even more often.  Loves his paci and wants something in his mouth at all times.  Is loving baby food and bath time and his brother.  We are slowly trying to figure him out so that we can all be happier.  

Dad is an amazing helper so that I can get some needed relief.  I am on meds for PPD after totally losing it last week when no one would sleep and I wasn't getting a break and couldn't stop crying and yelling.  Things are looking up and I know that we will eventually get into a groove and get our lives back to a sweet spot where everyone is getting a decent amount of sleep, alone time and time together.  Right now I am just eager for Summer - warmer weather, spending days in the sun and letting the boys just play outside and I know by that point Porter will be older and able to hold his own against Harrison more. I am in love with the super early few weeks of a brand new baby, and then I wish I could just skip the in-between and jump to 6-8Months when they can do more and are more like real people.  We'll get there.
