From 4 weeks to 8 weeks

Adilyn is actually 9 weeks old now so the title is a little misleading.

The first 4 weeks of Adilyn's life was really hard on all of us. Well maybe not on her, but it was really hard for Orion and I. Mostly me I think. There was a lot of crying on Adilyn and I's part. She cried because she was hungry or tired and I cried for pretty much the same reasons.

There was a lot of this.
With a little bit of this.
She got all the sleep she wanted, which only last 2 or 3 hours at a time. Life was tough then! Thankfully we have gotten into the swing of things.

Now there is more of this.
And some of this.
With some daddy daughter time as well.
My mom bought her that hat. The flower on it is bigger than her head! Well it looks like it at anyways. Hopefully when she is bigger the hat won't look so ridiculous on her.

Life is so much easier now that we have a schedule and she sleeps 7-8 hours at night. That means she usually only wakes up once a night to nurse. I am so excited about this because I am not tired all day long now. Orion is excited too because I don't snap get bothered so easily. I think Adilyn likes it too because I have more energy to play/talk to her when she is awake.


  1. Looks like you made it over a big hump! You're amazing KD! Now I'll know when I am going through the same thing that I/my baby is totally normal (no, i'm not pregnant, just sayin' when the time comes :))
