Almost officially 4 weeks 7-30-08

Well, I just put Judah down for a nap in the swing--hopefully, he won't wake up right away. We are still in the eat (well, try to get him to eat while awake. he seems to eat for a few minutes then doze off again. I am constantly trying to wake him once he gets started nursing. It leaves me hoping/wondering if he has eaten enough.) wake then nap routine. His wake times are still not for very long and he certainly doesn't do much of anything during those times. Sometimes he is just fine and happy and at other times he acts very uncomfortable and no matter how I hold him or put him down he fusses. Overall he is a good baby. My problem is the lack of sleep (we are still waking up every three hours to eat) and the tether that is tied to me and Judah by breastfeeding. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about how much easier it will be when we switch over to formula. My goal is the same as with Elijah, 6 mo, and just like with Elijah I kept thinking to myself that I could easily shorten that goal! Ha! Now technically, it should be easier with Judah since I am not working full time but I have Elijah now and I trully don't know what I am going to do when Luke goes back to work! Yikes! That is such a scary thought!

Anyway, there are my thoughts for the moment!
