5 Days Old
Yesterday we began to implement the "Babywise" plan and tried to shift him to about a three hour eat/wake/sleep routine. It mostly worked but in the afternoon he was SUPER hard to keep awake for a full feeding and for some playtime afterwards. But the whole thing worked beautifully, because he slept like an angel last night! I fed him at 8, 12, 3:30, and then we all got up at 6. And I seriously slept in between all those times. Which makes me wonder why I am still so tired?
And for Pete's sake, WHY am I still in so much debilitating pain? I got a new pain on my left side yesterday that seems fresh, while the other pains are mostly trying to heal. Walking around isn't too bad, it's the initial standing up straight that kills me. Thank goodness for strong muscles in the rest of my body that really do pick up the slack. And I'm still pretty swollen in certain places, mainly around my incision. Yuk.
But this kid is great. And beautiful. And watching Nathan grow slowly more fond of Alex is heartwarming.
