What do you mean I'm supposed to sleep at night?

DH and I got 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so I am actually feeling human enough to blog! We took Cameron to the doctor's for her weight check. She gained 3 ounces but is still below her birth weight. Other than that, she is perfect (not just me, the doctor's words, I swear!). Breastfeeding is still a bit of a struggle but I'm pumping enough to supplement. We have an appointment with a lactation consultant tomorrow and I hope to get in a better routine.

We also found out that Cameron has her nights and days mixed up. That explains Saturday night when I was up with her from 3 AM until we got back from the doctor's. So we've started feeding her every 2 hours during the day and then letting her sleep at night as long as possible. It paid off early this morning and we got to sleep from 4:30 to 8:30 AM. Woo hoo! She would have slept longer but I wanted to get her day going for an even better night tonight. We are definitely not holding with the advice, "Never wake a sleeping baby." I'd rather wake her up and have her eat during the day if it means I get more sleep at night.

This swing is worth it's weight in gold!

I got an extra nap in while DH and I watched Tiger Woods win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I don't normally like golf but I do like Tiger. Plus the announcers are so soothing that it is really easy to fall asleep. DH is already trying to get Cameron to be a fan.

Can you say, "Tiger"?
Needless to say, Cameron has gone through multiple outfit changes, had a couple of blowouts and spit ups so it was time for her first bath! I'm hoping to make this part of her night time ritual.

I guess it's not so bad to be wet.

But being dry is much better!

I think I'm ready for bed now.
