Sweet Relief

I think I might actually see the light at the end of the tunnel....

It's amazing what a difference 2 vs. 4 hrs of sleep will do for you. Last night Logan slept for a good 5.5 hrs!! :) And, he may have gone longer but I was getting engorged and needed to nurse. Over the last couple of days he seems to be sleeping much better at night and staying awake for longer periods of time during the day. Not sure if it's because he's now much fuller after the formula supplements, or if it's because he's just older and getting more used to being "outside" in the real world. Either way, Mommy is feeling much better -- I actually went out to the salon for a haircut and the mall to do some shopping today! I can honestly say driving alone in the car was a joy for me, as was just sitting at the Pizza My Heart in the mall, people watching while they made my pizza. Sad, I know, but I don't have much of a life these days! ;-)

Logan still throws a few fits but it doesn't seem as bad (or perhaps I'm just becoming immune to the shrill cries in my ear?) His latest issue is gulping down his food too fast (whether on the boob or the bottle), and then unable to burp the bubble up (or pass the gas) which then causes him visible pain. :( It's tough to watch because there's not a whole lot we can do -- but we've moved him to a smaller bottle/nipple and burping him a lot more frequently which really seems to help.

Dare I say, we may be turning a corner? Only time will tell.
