I am tired. Friday, Saturday & today I thought I found balance between festivities and lots of Buddy visits each day. Now that he’s doing well on the bottle I want to be up at almost all of his feedings – which means every 3 hours. Also fit in pumping, driving, & trying to do some normal life things and that leads to tiredness. It is completely worth the exhaustion to see him, but it is still exhausting. Welcome to motherhood. 🙂
Buddy is trying out a “big boy bed” tonight – basically a smaller bed in the NICU where he will have to regulate his heat instead of having his own personal heater on/in the bed. He is bundled up like the little brother in the snow on A Christmas Story. We shall see if he gets to stay in this bed or if he’ll have to try again when he is a little bigger.
