My First Mothers Day

I had a great first Mothers Day! It all began around 4 in the morning when Campbell woke up from a 4 hour slumber. Scott told me he would get up with Campbell and give him a bottle so I was able to fall back to sleep and get some more Zzz's. I haven't gotten that much consecutive sleep in over 6 weeks so it was pretty amazing. I told Scott all I really wanted to do for Mother's Day was go to church since we haven't been since Campbell was born. Everything with Campbell's schedule was working out perfectly for us to make it to the 11:00 service. We were really hoping that Campbell would fall asleep in the car on the way there but he didn't. And he was wide awake the entire time we were in church. We sat on the very back row in case we needed to make a quick exit and a few times I thought he was about to make some noise so I hopped up with him and walked out but he never got fussy. It was so great to be able to go back to church. It may not always work out with his schedule (or lack thereof right now) but I'm hoping we'll be able to make that a part of our Sunday routine again.
Once we got home, Scott took a couple of photos of me and the little peanut and I love how this one turned out! We finished the day with a nap, a walk and an early bedtime.
Campbell has slept for 4.5 hours in the middle of the night for 3 nights in a row now! The first night it happened it totally freaked me out. I woke up at midnight and saw that Campbell was still asleep. I shook Scott awake and asked him if he had fed Campbell and when he said no I hopped out of bed, grabbed my phone and shined it in Campbell's face to see if he was okay. Once I discovered he was fine, I watched him for an entire hour thinking "what is he doing, why is he still asleep?" Geez. All I've wanted is for him to sleep longer and the first time he does I can't even enjoy it.
I'm so, so happy to report that Campbell's medicine has done wonders for him. He never cries now. It's amazing considering that's all he's done for the last month or so. I actually didn't realize how much he cried until he stopped crying. Scott and I went all around town with him this weekend and he never fussed. It was so nice! Our life doesn't feel so chaotic and stressful now. I honestly just thought that babies cried a lot and he was normal but now I'm starting to see how wrong I was. It makes me so happy that my baby is feeling better. Thank you Lord for answered prayers! And extra sleep!!!! Hopefully we can keep this up!
