You might be wondering how we are adjusting to life with the little guy. We are doing well. His sleep habits are all over the place, which means ours are as well. Bri is doing most of the heavy lifting at the moment since we are breastfeeding and you need to give that a few weeks before offering the bottle or there is something called nipple confusion. I have had that for many years but didn't realize there was a name for it. So in another week or two my sleep habits, which have not been great for several years, will get slightly worse, at least in the short term, as I take over some of the midnight feedings.
Little Man is not a very happy guy from about 7PM until 2AM unless he is suckling at Momma's bosom. This would be fine except that she needs some sleep, so from about 9PM to about 12 I babysit. Which means I try to keep him from screaming bloody murder by bouncing, walking, driving, soothing, sushing, singing (very poorly and out of tune mind you, also I butcher all song lyrics or just insert my own), and other quiet-the-baby things. In between when he nods off I can do a bit of reading or zone out to the television. But there is a limit to how much TV I want to watch. Anyway, many of you have already been there and some of you are one day to follow. It is great but don't expect your baby to be the bestest baby ever gosh golly gurgle giggle. They are all little poopy crying whiny monsters a lot of the time.
2012 looks to be another busy year between coaching personal clients, swim clinics, and everything else. I wouldn't have it any other way. Hope you have a great one and see you around sometime!
