Saying Goodbye

I have to saw goodbye until Monday.  However, I did want to ask you all to keep my grandmother in your prayers.  After I get off work tonight Hubby, Caleb, Bella and  I are traveling to Lexington to be with my family.  My grandmother is having a pace maker placed in her heart tomorrow, and I would like to ask you all to keep her in your prayers.  Eventhough it is a pretty routine surgery she is still really nervous, which is understandable. After the surgery I am going to go back to my hometown with her in order to help her the next few days.  Caleb, Bella and I will aslo be away form Hubby until the weekend, which is always hard.  The surgery is scheduled to be around 11 am tomorrow.

Also, I must say that I have a new love for Tommy baby clothes. I personally have not bought any Tommy clothing for Caleb, but we have received a few hand me downs! I love love love them!! I think I might have to invest in some more cute Tommy outfits for him.

Oh yea, I forgot to answer the question from Meant to Be a Mom concerning my tell all Thursday. She asked if Caleb slept through the night, when did he, and how did we get him to do so. Caleb does sleep through the night. Generally about 7-8 hours.  When we first brought him home from the hospital I would try to rock him to sleep, cuddle etc. However, after many sleepless nights I realized this was not working. At about 5-6 weeks I began the process of self soothing, and though it was hard at first it works. We also established a nighttime routine.  Bath, bottle, bed.  If he begins crying really hard I go in and check on him, but never pick him back up unless he has messed himself.  As far as nighttime feedings he used to eat every three hours. 2 bottles during the night. However, around the same time 5-6 weeks I began slowing decreasing the amount of ounces that I fed him at night, until he no longer wanted to eat.  He generally wakes up at around 7 am to eat now, and it is so wonderful!! Hope this helps.

Bye till Monday..Have a Great weekend!!

Thanks so much for answering my sleep questions. I can't help but be anxiouse for Cooper to sleep through the nights. Right now we are going to sleep at midnight most nights just so we only have to get up twice a night since he wakes up every 3-4 hours. Its hard and its really wearing on the hubby and I.

Also I will definitely keep your grandma in my prayers.
