Oh Please Sleep!

I think I forgot how hard it is with a newborn. Annika has been sleeping through the night since 8 weeks old and it has been wonderful. We've had a few nights with nightmares and terrors but other than that she's been perfect.

Now we have Annabel. Annabel who has to be going through a growth spurt. Either that or she hates me, or she likes me, because she sure likes to see me a lot in the middle of the night. The longest stretch of time she's slept so far is 6 hours. FLUKE. It's never happened again and now the longest amount of time has been around 4 hours.

Last night it was 2. Like an itty bitty newborn. She woke up every 2 hours, took 45 minutes to finish a bottle, took 15 minutes to hiccup herself to sleep (this is some weird thing that both her and Annika did) and then she was up again. So, if you're counting, I got sleep in 1 hour increments all night.

Now I do know she's a newborn still but I hope and pray that by 10 weeks she's got this whole sleeping thing down! I don't know how I'm going to go back to work with no sleep at night! I'm like a zombie today!

But this weekend was good exercise wise. I did my first run since May of last year! I ran 2 miles in only 23 minutes on Saturday, not too bad at all! I thought I'd be awful to start with (I think when I very first started running I was around 14 minutes per mile) but I'm glad I'm not! Sunday I ran the same 2 miles again in 23 minutes. Today my legs are SORE. But it's good, because that should really help me in losing weight!
