Sleeping

Jackson ditched his 5:30am wake up call this morning which meant I only had to get up once last night to feed him!!!! (excuse the overuse of exclamation points, but I’m a little excited). The baby slept from 10pm to 3:30am and then slept again until 6:45am…nothing says love like a sleeping baby.

I’m sure tonight he will wake up every two hours to eat, but last night was awesome, and I feel like you have to celebrate every little milestone. Yesterday marked four weeks with our boy and in some ways I can’t believe I’ve been a mother that long and in other ways I feel like I’ve been doing this forever…not just four weeks.

Jackson is starting to wear 0-3 month or 3 month clothes and I sadly packed up a few of his newborn clothes this week. His favorite activities continue to be nursing, sleeping. pooping, sitting in his bouncy seat and baths. He has also decided he likes to go for walks in the bob stroller and lay on his baby play mat.

I’m forced to start really thinking about when my maternity leave ends and what I am going to do. I can’t imagine leaving Jackson for 8 plus hours a day, but I feel weird about giving up my career all together. In my perfect world I would just do freelance work and that might be an option but it would have to be consistent which isn’t really the definition of freelance. My other option is to negotiate to go back to my current job part time or fin a part-time job elsewhere. Unfortunately, public relations and marketing jobs don’t really exist in part-time status that often.

It will be interesting to see how this all pans out because at this point I can’t even predict.

Here are a few pictures of Jackson’s favorite things…

    You look wonderful and Jackson is a cutie! Don’t fret about maternity leave and when it ends. It’s a hard choice but you’ll figure it out and do what’s best for everyone.
