Friday, Friday, Friday!

I'm so happy that it's finally Friday!  Since returning to work 10 weeks ago, I've been fortunate to only have to go into the office 3 days a week and work from home the other 2 days.  Usually I adjust my hours slightly so that one of my days at home can really be more like a day off that I can use to hang out with N, run errands, have appointments, etc.  The past few weeks things have been kind of busy at work and I've really only been able to be home one day each week.  This week Friday was the only day I could make that work and the past four days have seemed really long.  I honestly don't know how most working moms do it - it's so exhausting to try to get everything accomplished in the few hours you have each evening after working all day. 

At the beginning of this week N decided that he wasn't going to sleep through the night anymore!  On Monday and Tuesday nights he woke up at 12:30 and then again at 4.  Both times he wasn't really crying, but he was hungry and right after eating he went back to sleep without a problem, which is great, but man was I tired for most of this week!  Although since he weight has been a little low (at his 4 month appointment he was 14 pounds which is the 25%) I want to make sure he eats whenever he's hungry.  I've been taking him to weekly weigh-ins whenever it fits in my work schedule just to make sure he's not losing weight.  We are going to one this morning and I'm hoping for a good weight gain this week.  He's always really happy and content and his doctor wasn't overly concerned, but I really want to make sure I'm staying on top of it! 

This weekend we don't have much on the agenda, just relaxing and probably doing some work around the house.  It's going to be pretty hot and humid here so we'll probably end of spending most of our time inside :) 

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Isn't it the worst when they regress on sleep? You get a taste of good night's sleep and they take it away!

    My doctor told me to be sure I don't cave and create bad habbbits, but it was hard not to!

  2. He may be ready to go up an ounce or two in feeding, going through a growth spurt. My now 6yr old would do that.
