1. For the past two nights the baby has slept snuggled beside me for two 3 to 4-hour blocks. She’s cluster feeding during the day – about every 1 to 2 hours. I am in absolute shock. My oldest still sometimes wakes up after four hours. Even our toddler who asks to go “night-night” didn’t start sleeping longer stretches until around three months (she also had reflux, which often required me to hold her upright after nocturnal nosh sessions, so sleep was in short supply for a long time).
2. We’ve enjoyed two nature walks this week. I’ve toted the baby in a sling and the girls and I (accompanied by either Nana or Gaba) have soaked up the springtime while walking along a trail in our townhome development. Madeline has drawn pictures of fuzzy caterpillars and a cardinal in her nature notebook, and Rae has toddled along beside her big sister. The fresh air has done all of us wonders.
3. I took a shower and shaved my legs yesterday. Woo-hoo! Go, me!
