Man, we had a rough day with Baby Mako. He started to fuss last night, and basically didn’t sleep for longer than an hour between midnight and three hours ago (a 21-hour stretch). At 8pm tonight, he finally closed his eyes for real sleep (3 hours, so far). Pam took care of him last night to let me sleep, since I’m back at work this week, and she is a wreck, today. I normally get up for one feeding at night (if there is enough pumped milk), and it was incredible to get to sleep for around 5.5 hrs.
Mako ate more than the usual amount today, but cried some even while feeding. Some of the crying led to big poops, but some never led to catharses of any kind. They are mysteries.
The picture in this post is actually me! Apparently, I cried, too.
