Today's blog is written at 10:10pm because it has been my first free minute all day! We had a rough day today since Jonathan, that's the boy, has a not so normal, normal routine. Most parents have to change 3 to 20 poop-filled diapers a day. Not my kid. We are blessed with one every other day. I am sure most parents would feel like that was the best baby ever... But, thanks to this very specific pattern, the boy has an upset stomach for about 47 of the 48 hours in between the special deliveries. I could be exaggerating, but the timetable seems accurate to me. Today was one of these days. The package arrived around 7:30pm this evening, and since about 8:00pm, he has been sleeping like a....very content baby. But up to that point, not so happy. At least there will be sleep at night. Now to figure out how to get the boy sleeping through the night. Even a 4 hour cycle would be exciting to me. I think that would be a great 1st Mother's Day present! I'll keep my fingers crossed.

In true first time mother fashion, it has taken almost three months to start the blog I have been talking about. After having my first baby, (see picture at top of page) a month early, lets just say that I was a little unprepared. As a matter of fact, I had him on the day that was marked for my baby shower. As this is my kind of luck, at least we delivered in a hospital that didn't mid a ton of visitors, since the shower was sort of impromptu and in my hospital room.
Since then, we have started to fall into a routine around the house. He seems to only have a cranky day every few days. Unfortunatly, I am the kind of person who likes to keep busy, and right now, that seems impossible since I am really just betting the bare essentials completed. The normal day consists of the following:
Although, it all seems worth it for the half smile he is starting to make! Counting down the minutes for a giggle...
