Rock Star Baby!
Okay biased comment already, I know I know, but seriously this kid is awesome. Last night was yet another sweet night of sleep with Shayden only waking up twice to eat - let me remind you he is only 20 days old!!! Today he has continued to cycle through his daytime 3 hour routine like a champ and has napped in his crib this afternoon without being totally out cold before being placed in to sleep (thanks Grandma Costello). This has allowed me some sane time with my sis and her kids this morning, lunch with my hubby and all my summer clothes are packed up and my winter clothes are put away in the closet...what sweet victory. You rock Shayden!

Daddy takes over!
Desperate times call for desperate measures...Chris took over for me while Shayden was having a 'moment' and decided to take him for a little ride on our mobile ottoman...go Daddy go! Needless to say not only was I thrilled but little man loved the ride.

2 Weeks Old!

Oh my goodness, how time fly's ... we can hardly believe Shayden is already 2 weeks old and yet it seems at times like he has been here for longer than that - can I get an Amen from the sleepless parents out there :)

In all seriousness though he is doing awesome and really sleeping like a champ - last night was two 5 hour stretches with a 3 hour to finish, not bad for 14 days old.

40 Weeks !!!

No new mom should ever have to type that date into their journal - isn't this supposed to be over by now and you should be holding your new little bundle of joy??? What - NO - are you kidding me...At this moment I am dressed for work - already 45 minutes late due to a phrase I have coined "baby depression" which really is no depression at all except that you can think of nothing else except having that baby and nothing else in the world matters (well not nothing but you get the point).
We have an appt today at 12:45 just so we can remind ourselves that he still hasn't come and yes we still have prenatal appts to attend. I am praying that our doctor announces "you are 5 cm dilated, looks like today could be the day". Oh Lord please!!!
Well off to work and my waiting bowl of cereal - thanks honey.
