Elias has been sleeping for 5-7 hours straight for a few weeks now, with most nights me getting up at 4 am for a feeding. Well, for the past two nights he has slept through the night entirely! Last night he slept from 9-5 and the night before he slept from 10:15-6:15. YEA for eight hours of sleep. Now, if I could just get to bed close to the time that he does. Then, after he wakes up and eats, he goes right back to sleep, and I usually put him in his swing, where he will sleep until about 8ish (see picture below).
Matthew is going out of town for three days today. We only have child care Monday-Wednesday (we are on a waiting list for Thursday and Friday) and our planned care for this week fell through last night. So, I was a mess trying to figure out what we were going to do with the peanut. Thankfully, Angie willingly volunteered to take care of him. Whew! It sure made me wish we had family in town… (Miss you guys.)
Please be praying for Matthew as he travels and reads from churched. We are excited for more people to be exposed to the project.
I am hoping to squeeze in a little scrapbooking while he is out of town. I would like to make a mini album of Elias’s birth. I also have a lot of pictures to scrapbook of friends and family with him. I haven’t done any layouts this week (remember my three a week goal), so maybe I can knock out one or two of those. I ordered about 200 pictures from Shutterfly on Sunday, so those should hopefully be here in a few days- and I will have even more to scrapbook. 🙂
