Hi! This is me! NOT in the hospital!

Woo hoo! And more exclamation points!

I’ve actually stayed out of the hospital for 3 whole consecutive days. This rocks. But you know what rocks harder? A sleeping baby. But that didn’t come easily, my gentle snowflakes.

Why? you ask? Well, at first he was sleeping four (!!) hours at a time during the day. Yes, FOUR. However, Husband and I are idiots. (Oh, come on, you know it’s true.) We couldn’t really remember how much he needed to be fed – they don’t share that info with you at the hospital – and at LittleMan’s first pediatrician appointment yesterday we found out he had gained no weight in a week.

Oh.

Apparently, we were not feeding him enough. Like by ONE-THIRD. (See? Idiots.) And, while he’s a happy baby, a hungry baby does not sleep. And if the baby does not sleep, WE DO NOT SLEEP.

We fixed this probably immediately. Last night? He went four hours in between feedings.

All together now… AAAAaaahhhhhh….
