Update from our crib

But not an update literally from Asher's crib, because he doesn't sleep in it. Because he hardly sleeps ever, anywhere.

Yes, we seem to have disappeared off the face of the planet. We've been wrapped up in this little blessing. This little blessing that likes to be awake and/or fussing a large part of the day and night. Every day. (Last night, though, he did well. No fussiness! Maybe this will be the new trend.) The doctor says we may be looking at colic (eek!). She gave us some things we could do to help settle him, all of which we were already doing. She was impressed. We were thinking, uh oh, now what?

Our little guy just loves to be awake and alert and held and soothed. The doctor said some babies are so alert that they cannot settle themselves into sleep, nor stay asleep. Sounds like Asher. It's adorable when we have some energy and patience to just sit and entertain him. It's exhausting all the other times. (Not to mention it's hard to 'entertain' a newborn.)

Bless his heart. Asher just wants all of our love an attention. And that's just what he's getting.

Hang in there girl! You, both are already amazing parents - Asher is so very blessed! He is adorable and I'm glad to hear that he is a healthy, growing boy! Sending you both love and prayers (especially for some sleep!)! :)
