This week has been so fun and I've seen so many changes in my little boy. It's so amazing to watch him grow and change every day and I'm constantly reminding myself to take the time between feeding, changing, and cleaning to just enjoy him.
The one good thing about my mom not staying with us anymore is that I had to take over all the household duties again. It would seem that this would add to my load and be overwhelming but I've actually been enjoying it because it breaks up my day and makes me feel accomplished.
Connor is eating like crazy as usual and as challenging as it is for me to feel like I'm always feeding him, its such a good feeling to know he is healthy, strong, and growing like he should!
This week he hasn't been napping as much as at the beginning and I spent a whole day just trying to get him to sleep and failed. He only napped a total of about 1 1/2 hrs all day. I was frustrated but the next day I decided I needed to get a little more creative. Instead of just holding him and trying to calm him down I tried some other ideas like pushing him around in his stroller, putting him in his swing, and turning on his sound machine.
Guess what?! It worked! Being a new mom isn't always easy but it's so rewarding. Not to mention all the cuddles and love!
