A little visit

Today we all woke up around 10:30 in the morning after a fairly successful attempt at putting Clementine on a schedule. We lounged around, ate some breakfast and watched a couple of episodes of The Office.

Around 2:30 or so Jeremy's dad arrived with Jeremy's grandmother and Aunt Tracy from Eugene. We chatted and everyone took their turns holding Clementine.  It was a nice little afternoon.

Right now the three of us are laying in bed with Clementine attempting to go to sleep all by herself. Each time we've settled down for a nap today the amount of time she has fussed before falling asleep has been less and less. By the time I wrote the paragraph above, she has already passed out! Yes! She is an amazingly sweet little lady.

Lazy Monday

Today Jeremy and I woke up and realized we had a cold. We took it easy and stayed home all day.

Neither of us got out of our pajamas. I took a morning nap with Clementine and Jeremy took the afternoon nap shift with her.

We're trying to get Clementine on a schedule in preperation for Jeremy's return to work in mid-October. With the way today has gone so far, this schedule is going to be hard work.

The supposed schedule is as follows:

6:30-7:00 am
Wake up/feed Clementine

9:00-11:00 am
Clementine's morning nap

Lunch for Clementine

2:00-4:00 pm
Clementine's afternoon nap

4:00-4:45 pm
Clementine afternoon snack

8:30 pm
Bath for Clementine

9:00 pm
Night feeding/bed for Clementine

11:30 pm
Late night feeding

3:30 am
Clementine feeding

5:30 am
Clementine feeding

The hardest part of this schedule is that Jeremy and I are trying to teach Clementine to fall asleep on her own without nursing or bouncing on the exercise ball. It is absolutely heartbreaking to lay next to her while she is crying and not do anything.

Month One, Complete!

Clementine turned one month old today! She celebrated by eating a lot and then taking a nap in her vibrating chair in the shade.
