I've been sleeping a lot lately. Sure, I'm tired, but no more tired than usual. I've found that in this ridiculous heat the only place in this apartment I can go to escape it is the bedroom. The air conditioner in the living room does basically nothing when it's unbearable outside. That being said, I slept for eight hours last night. I woke up at 9:30, took a nap from 12:00 to 2:00ish, then slept again from about 8:30 to 9:45. Needless to say, I'm stoked for the weather to cool down.

At St. Luke's they have "Baby First" program which I'm thinking about doing. Basically, it's just where you get to spend the first hour after delivery with your baby with "limited interruptions from staff and visitors". I'm thinking that sounds nice. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm all about everyone seeing the baby and the nurses doing what they have to do, but, from what I've been reading it's good to try to breastfeed in the first hour after birth since you and (especially) the baby are both super alert. And, I've decided that it'd be a good time to just read to her. I haven't decided if there's anywhere specifically in the Bible that I'd want to read, but I figure Miles can read to us while I try to get her to latch. But, I guess that's also something that will depend on how the whole birth thing goes down. I just think it sounds nice.

Now I'm hot and going to work on pictures. Toodles.

  1. What a great idea! They didn't offer "Baby First" to us, but we kinda did that on our own. We told everyone that we would let them know when it was time to visit. Malachi had to be taken away and monitored for a few hours and that was really hard not to see him, but Matt would walk down and be with him so that made me feel a little better. I think you should read her "her story." The part where Anna is mentioned in the Bible, but I'm sure Miles will come up with a better passage than what I can think of. And again without trying to sound pushy or overly annoying helpful, if you need help with the breastfeeding thing, I still am the human cow. lol!
