Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

Well, today Micah woke up a bit late (9:00 am), so I was afraid he'd be off all day. I worked hard to cram in all of his feedings, and he got some naps (but probably not enough). I made sure that we took him upstairs to bed at 7:45, and I nursed him. It was clear he didn't get quite enough to eat, so we gave him another 2 ounces by bottle. He still wasn't ready to fall asleep on his own, so we rocked him to sleep. He was out by 8:25 - the right time, even if he needed a bit more coddling to fall asleep. I'm hoping he'll get better each night, and in a few more days we'll be back to "normal."
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
