Week 3 of Jonah's life

Look at my little man all dressed up! Ok he's not so dressed up, but he's stylin' in his tie. We've had some late nights with Mr. Jonah. He sleeps well during the day and then it seems like some nights he gets a tummy ache and can't really sleep until, oh, 1, or 2, or 3 a.m. I understand that's just what it's like having a newborn. I think I have just started to wonder if I am doing something wrong. Then I tell myself you can't expect your 3 week old to be on a schedule! That will come later! (Please tell me I'm right!) The day before yesterday, Jonah nursed a lot all day long and didn't sleep well. I could barely put him down all day long. Then yesterday he made up for that lost sleep. He slept so well that I was afraid we'd be up all night. He did wake up for a couple hours later in the evening around 10. I think it was around midnight when he fell asleep again. I missed pumping last night because I was just too tired to do it at midnight. Anyway, he slept until my husband was up getting ready for work around 5ish. I was pumped! 5 hours! People talk about their babies sleeping through the night and I was starting to think my Jonah might not do that for awhile. But to me 5 hrs straight is heaven. He had been waking up every 2 hours or so from the start of the previous feeding...which is really about 1.5 hours of sleep in between. So I was pretty pumped this morning! It may not happen again for several weeks, but at least I know its possible!

How could you not love this cuddly thing? I fall more and more in love with him every day. There's nothing sweeter than listening to those cute sounds he makes while he's feeding or watching him smile while he sleeps. We got his newborn pictures taken last Monday evening. They turned out so well! Check out the proofs here. Amber Lanning took them for us and she has a little preview on her blog too. How do you choose which ones to buy?

So what are you guys doing for Valentine's Day? I think the hubby and I might make it out to eat. Jonah will be staying with his Mimi for the first time. I asked for a pedicure for Valentine's Day so maybe I can sneak that in too while we're out. I don't even know where we'll go to eat, because we haven't made reservations and I'm sure it will be hard to get into restaurants. Is there anywhere any of you suggest? I can't wait to dress up Jonah in his heartbreaker onesie for V-day. I'll be sure to take pics!

Now that it's a little easier to get out and about with the baby, I hope to have many more pictures! There's just only so many pics you can take in your house on the couch! Speaking of being on the couch...I am almost ready to get my rear off of it and get back to running. Hopefully sometime next week I will motivate myself to do just that. Things are a little different on this ole body so we'll see how well I can get to moving. Have a great holiday! I can't wait to hear about your V-day!

Ooh you're getting out for a date night - awesome! We're staying in and my husband's cooking. Of course, we don't have a baby yet, so that works a little easier.

I had a lot of fun at our playdate! : ) You looked great. Jonah is such a retty baby with that blonde hair. He will get better about sleeping, I promise! Harbor was around 2 months when he finally got the hang of it.

Thank you for your comment! It was VERY encouraging. The last couple weeks are such a waiting game, aren't they? I LOVE seeing pictures of Jonah and knowing I will have a Little One very soon.

Okay I think the one of him in the sleeper looks just like your baby pictures. He is just so sweet. It is amazing how long you can stare at a baby isn't it.

Natalie said...

Oh my! I just looked at your proofs. This is going to be tough. With my two the new born pics were the hardest so we would get only one really great one but you have so many! I Love number 1 for the one of him by himself. I LOVE 47! I wrote down all my favs so we could compare.
