Here are a few pictures of Eli's room, for those of you who have been asking. Sorry it's taken me so long to get them on here. Eli slept in his crib for the first time today. We've kept him in the bassinet because of all the medical equipment he was hooked up to at first. It was easier to just wheel him and all the monitors around in the bassinet. But now that he's free, it's time for the crib! He looks so small in it! :)

I am SO GLAD it's the weekend. I am pooped! Hopefully I can get a little more sleep these next couple of days, and maybe even go swimming. I used to spend every summer in the water, either teaching swimming lessons or just plain swimming, but this year I haven't been swimming once. I will hit up friends with pools so that I can take advantage of them. :)

I think a schedule, or some resemblance of one, is being formed for me and Eli. Though our day begins much earlier than I would like, I think he's into a good pattern with a couple of long naps during the day and two 4-hour stretches of sleep at night between feedings. Then, regardless of when his last feeding was, he'll wake up like clockwork by 7am. That means that many times I'll finally crawl back into bed at 6:15am only to be woken up 30 minutes later because Eli's ready to start his day. Seriously, what does he have to do that's so important? I long for more than three hours of sleep at a time, but I am trying to really soak up this "newborn" phase, because he's growing so fast. I will miss my little baby.
