2 Months

Yesterday Jackson finally turned 2 months old. He is getting big and I am so happy. I don't enjoy the newborn stage at all, I really don't enjoy my babies til they're about 6 months old. I've really struggled with some post partum depression and its been really hard. I guess thats a little personal for a blog, but it explains how I feel about life right now. He's gone from sleeping all the time to fighting sleep and not staying asleep during the day, which gets really frustrating. He's doing well at night, he does a 6 hour stretch without eating and wakes up a couple times because his tummy bugs him. I can't wait for his little digestive system to mature so he can sleep better and not grunt and push all the time, it drives him and me crazy! Now if I could sleep better life would be really good! We moved him out of our room so we could get some sleep and he is now sleeping in the storage room at my parents house. It will be nice to get our own house someday so he's not sleeping in the storage room! Evenings are starting to get easier with Jackson, he doesn't sleep in the evening, but he's not crying and having to be held all the time, which makes bedtime a little easier. We love our walks in the morning, every morning we go for a 1-2 hour walk with my sis in law. Jackson sleeps through it and gets a nice nap and I get some exersize and a nice visit with Jessica. Nicolas doesn't love it but he's usually pretty good on the days he has to come. I'm just sad the weather is changing and we won't be able to go anymore. So thats our life right now, pretty boring but we're surviving and Jackson is growing!

He sure is cute, Holly! Sorry he's not sleeping as well as you'd like him to! Just remember, "this too, shall pass". Thanks fo the update. I think of you often & wonder how you are doing! Hang in there!

I agree with you, I'm not a baby person at all. I like when they're big enough to tell me what they want. I had baby blues as well, I hope you feel better Holly! I just finally got my little one to sleep. She has such bad eczema that she just sits and scratches herself until she bleeds. So hard to be a mommy sometimes.

I never know until after the post pardom stuff is over. After the cloud lifts then I realize how down I was. The first few months can be so hard. you look fantastic though.
