Yes, I am Alive, Kinda

Just in case you thought that had moved to some remote location without access to internet, you would be partially correct. I have taken up residence in Babyland, in a somewhat quaint neighborhood called Motherhood and our house sets at the end of Lack of Sleep Lane.

I attempted once to start a blog when Cole was a week or two old, so that I could load pictures of Cole to show off, but after I got the pictures downloaded and attempted to upload one picture of him to the blog, he woke up and needed feeding. I apologize to my faithful followers for the lack of updating and no pictures, but this little bundle has been taking up my time, as he should.

He is now 7 weeks old and cute as a button. I returned to work last week and he is very well taken care of by my niece. His sleep schedule has gone from up every 2 hours to now 4-6 hours at a time. He does not like being held like a baby, he prefers to sit up, stand up and look out at people unless he is sleepy then he likes to snuggle and be semi cradled.

His brothers are truly a HUGE help to me, although sometimes a little to helpful. They are great fetchers and entertainers so that I can move laundry around and use the bathroom. I do not like to take Cole by myself in the car, especially if he is awake, as he does not like to be in the backseat by himself. When we drop his brothers off at school and he is awake, he fusses and cries all the way to the babysitters.

He goes back to the doctor on the 20th of this month for his 2 month checkup and shots, but if I were guessing he is around 15 lbs and I think he has probably grown in lenth also. As of his 1 month birthday he was up to 12.4 lbs and 25 1/2 inches long.

Since my life is back to somewhat of a routine, I hope to update more often.


  1. Glad to see you back on the blogosphere! :)

  2. Welcome back, glad you are surviving well with the new baby.

  3. Loved seeing that sweet boy at the get together. He is beautiful and I know he and his big brothers will have tons of fun in the years to come. Soon he will sleep through the night and you will be able to as well. People who think motherhood is easy have never been a mother.
