After her 1am feeding, she sleeps for about three more hours and we are up at 4:30 nursing again. Her last stretch is typically her shortest, lasting anywhere from one to three hours. By 6:30 or 7am we are up for the day.
Of course Eleanor takes plenty of naps during the day as well. She usually gets a good long one in the morning which allows me to shower and eat breakfast and catch up on blogs and emails. After that we may have a few catnaps before a long afternoon nap. By 4pm she is pretty much up with just 10 or 20 minute naps here and there until bedtime. So far it is working really well for us. But you know how routines go with newborns...well they are never quite routine!
Week Three was so much fun because of the holiday. With it being Thanksgiving week, we had Alex home with us every day. Then we had visitors all weekend long. It just flew right by and now it is already Tuesday again. This week might drag a little as it is just me and Eleanor at home together. Soon enough we will have more fun visitors and another weekend with Alex! While I am looking forward to that, I am trying not to wish the days away too quickly. I need to cherish every bit of time with my baby girl! Before you know it 3 weeks will be 3 years!
