We're Back

Sigh. I didn't mean to have a month-long blog break, but I guess that can happen when you have a new baby. And a computer that decides it doesn't want to get online anymore. It's being fixed, but in the meantime, all I have is Joshua's computer. Most of my computer time is also nursing time, which means one-handed typing. When both of my hands are free, I guess I have other priorities. Like showering. And doing laundry.

Laundry. It has now taken over my life. And we haven't even make the switch to cloth diapers yet. Eek. That's supposed to happen in the next few days.

Everyone is asking how our nights are going. Some are even asking if he's sleeping through the night. Well, the answer to that is definitely "No! Newborns aren't supposed to sleep through the night!" But probably two-thirds of our nights couldn't be better. The other third are usually
not too bad. Since Malachi sleeps with us, I basically sleep through his night nursing. It's only when he is colicky or wakeful that its a problem.

Overall, we are doing great. We are so glad that Malachi is here. Joshua has said numerous times that he never thought he'd want to kiss a baby so much. Malachi is already changing and learning things. I know that should be obvious, but its still shocking to see him holding his head up, etc. It's just more proof that this month is the first of dozens that will just fly by and before we know it, our baby boy will be all growed up. Trying to cherish every minute.

Joshua will be home soon, so I will wrap this up. I'm hoping to start posting a little more. A birth story is forthcoming. I started writing it the day after Malachi was born, actually. But you know. Processing takes time. So I still need to finish it.
