4 Weeks ALREADY!?

It's hard to believe that 4 weeks has past since I had Baby Ezra!  I have really been enjoying spending time with him!  He is so sweet and a very good baby!  He sleeps really well and most nights has been sleeping good.   Typically, he sleeps from 11 to 2.  I feed him at 2.  Then, he goes right back to sleep and wakes back up around 5.  Then he usually wants to eat again around 7.  I've been getting enough sleep!  There has only been 1 or maybe 2 nights that have been hard.  Ezra sleeps next to me in the bed.  It is a much better arrangement for me, because I can feed him and barely wake up.  Jesse doesn't like it much, but he wears earplugs and sometimes goes to sleep on the couch.  Pretty soon, I will try to get him to sleep apart from me.  I'd like to wait until he starts to sleep longer at night.   It's hard on me to get up out of the bed 3 times a night!

Everything has been going well with staying home alone with Jonah and Ezra.  We have a little routine going now and things seem to be clicking.  Jonah gets a little bored staying home and doing the same things every day, but not too bad.  We wake up, I change diapers, some days I put makeup on and even brush my teeth (LOL), we all get dressed, we eat breakfast, Ezra naps, we play and watch some recorded movies or TV from the DVR, we go for a walk around our neighborhood, we play more, we eat lunch, we get ready for nap, Jonah naps, Ezra and I hang out, if Ezra sleeps then maybe I can get some work done, I prep for dinner, and then Jesse comes home.  Its working pretty well so far!

I feel so much better than I did after I had Jonah.  I'm not sure why, but I really had some hormonal issues after Jonah was born.  Looking back, I may even have had Postpartum Depression.  I'm not sure, but I didn't feel like myself for a long time.  I know that I am enjoying Ezra more than I enjoyed Jonah as a baby.  I know that sounds bad, but I think it was stressful and I was hormonal.  Things were difficult.  I was constantly mad at Jesse.  I felt very lonely and bored.  This time I have Jonah here to keep me company and things are much less stressful.  I'm getting plenty enough sleep and Jesse and I have been getting along great!
