Happy Monday! We had a nice relaxing weekend, mostly spent trying to recover from what has been a somewhat rough week.
Cullen is going through a maaaaajor sleep regression, and I’m only averaging about 4 hours of sleep each night now. I know it’s normal for his age and his development, and I know I did it before when he was a newborn, but it is TOUGH to go from sleeping 7-8 hours to suddenly only getting 2 at a time.
So this weekend involved naps, couch time, recovery for all of us.
And in between we did a few walks, and I even did a 4.5 mile run! I have some new (more realistic!) running plans in place that I’m going to share more about this week. I’m excited to finally have a plan that feels comfortable and attainable.
I also ate a TON of food.
I’ve always had a huge appetite and often get made fun of for my gigantic portions, but breastfeeding has taken this to a whole new level. I now feel like I eat twice as much as Casey, and often find myself still starving at the end of the day. I can’t keep up!
Even though I’m running on very little sleep and feel pretty overwhelmed these days, I can’t help but continue to just feel so blessed every time I kiss Cullen’s little cheeks. Yesterday I got him dressed, and had a flashback to when I bought his little cardigan sweater. I was 11-weeks pregnant, and it was the very first baby item I bought. I remember thinking it looked so BIG!
And here we are ten months later…a perfect fit.
It’s the little, simple things like a baby sweater that make every minute so worth it, and each day so special. Of course I appreciate those moments a little bit more when we sleep a little longer, but for now I’ll take what I can get.
