Forgive that last post written by the frazzled, overextended mom written on only 3 hours of sleep. I have gotten so adjusted to her sleeping on average 11 hours that my body is used to having no less than 7 hours of straight sleep now. I'm glad that nights like this she at least goes back to sleep after her bottles.

So, I have that walking zombie feeling, but I did eventually get a couple more hours of sleep. Dorothy GUZZLED her entire bottle when she got up at 5:30. I put her back down and she slept until 10:00 and then guzzled another bottle. It's now 2:25 and she is down for a nap in her crib. She has had a pretty hefty serving of cereal and another 4 oz bottle since her bottle at 10:00. The formula doesn't seem to be upsetting her tummy and neither does the cereal. I was mostly wondering if my milk was more fatty than the formula, but perhaps she is just working on growing some more and it has just so happened to correlate with our timing for switching to formula.

I was finally able to go back to sleep this morning, I think it was around 8:00. David got up at around 10:30 and helped me make a good breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes, and coffee. He also watched Dorothy for a while and gave her a bottle so I could work on getting some diapers in the wash, a couple more boxes from our bedroom put away, and the garbage taken down to the dumpster.

There is a key that I hit on the laptop that really bugs me because it will automatically erase half of the post... which just happened to me. And I don't feel much like writing it again.

I am wondering how I am going to do when David is gone for 3 weeks (home on weekends). I need a break now so I can be ready for it. He really needed to get that other job.

My laptop does that sometimes too (I have no idea which key I accidentally hit that does it). But if/when it happens, I go to the edit tab and click on it and then click on "undo..." and it gets it back.
