firstly - I need to AGAIN thank everyone that is still continuing to send gifts and cards to Jasmine
I always knew everyone on TCS was wonderful - but it this has really been overwhelming - so THANKYOU
from the bottom of our hearts
I thought I would just pop in and give everyone an update since my little girl just turned 1 month old a couple of days a go - yup can you believe it - its already been a month!! where does the time go?
Everything is going BRILLIANTLY. Jasmine is an angel - she continues to sleep, feed and then sleep some more - seriously - this girl LOVES to sleep. Last week I started getting a bit worried that she was actually sleeping too much
Hopefully I wont be here in the future saying that she never sleeps
She loves to stay awake for about an hour after her morning feeds (around 6am and 10am) but for the rest of the day she just falls asleep in my arms within 30 minutes of finishing her feed (which she will finish in about 10-15 minutes
We are continuing to wake her up during the day every 3-4 hours, but I am letting her wake us up during the night in the hope that she will start sleeping longer at night. We have had a few good nights where we get longer sleeps, but nothing consistant at this stage - but I am not complaining.
Chris has been doing the late night feed (between 10-11pm) so that enables me to get to bed early if I need/ want to...
Unfortunatly my back has begun to play up again which we were worried would happen - but I have already been back to my dr and started treatment. Hopefully we can get that sorted out quickly.
I had my first smile this week - and wow it sure does melt your heart!!!
and I have noticed that I really am falling in love with her over and over again every single day - is it possible to actually love someone this much? I was worried about my bonding with her initially but I think we have that all sorted now
We really have been so lucky!
an updated photo taken this morning
and other than the lack of sleep and my lack of TCS time, I have nothing to complain about
