We had a really good night last night. Morgan Kate got some much needed rest and so did Mommy and Daddy. Travis and I are slowly learning what her cries mean and how to help her. It has taken a little bit of detective work, as well as trial and error, but we are learning. We may have this whole thing down pat by the time she leaves for college. Ha! Right now she is napping. Shhh.
Morgan Kate is also eating some better. She still likes to put up a fight with her Mommy, but she is a "bottle pro" when she's working for her Daddy. This morning I literally called Travis into the bedroom, handed over Morgan Kate, and asked him to show me what he does to get her to do so well. Thankfully he was able to give me some pointers. Hee, hee.
I realize that I may have seemed somewhat negative lately. When you have looked at the same four walls for days, are going on two hours of sleep, have a baby that won't stop crying, and monitors that are constantly alarming it gets to be quite overwhelming. Throw in some hospital bills and other medical expenses, especially in this economy and things really start to get to you. These last few weeks have been so hard. Really. Nothing I could have ever prepared for. It didn't matter what advice I was given or books that I read - NOTHING helped prepare me. At times I am sure it seems that all I do is complain or I even seem to exaggerate about how things are going. But I promise it's all been the truth. It has been a quite a battle getting her to eat and sleep, but like I said, I think we are figuring it out. I think. And hopefully things are starting to get better. Not to mention that warmer days are even closer and we will FINALLY be able to get out a little.
