Time For Your Checkup

Bennett had his one month check up today! Aren't you always so curious to know what your little one weighs during that first year? I am. I was pleasantly surprised at Bennett's weight gain! He weighs 8 pounds, 5 ounces which puts him in the 5th percentile. I thought we'd still be in the 7's so I'm thrilled to see him doing well on his weight gain. I think he's going to be a tiny little guy like his brother but that's okay! We need to be able to reuse all of Campbell's clothes anyway :)
Other than our little doctor visit, Bennett and I didn't do much today. Campbell was at MDO so I took the opportunity to go to the pool and get a little sun. It was nice and relaxing. I needed that little break in my life. The tiredness is really catching up with me. I'm SO ready for Bennett to start sleeping for longer stretches at night. Right now I'm getting about a 4 hour stretch of sleep, then another 2 after that. Sometimes I get to take a nap in the afternoon and sometimes I don't. The lack of sleep is beginning to take its toll and I'm finding myself more emotional these days simply because I'm tired. I'm hoping we're halfway there to Bennett sleeping through the night. Last night he did the best he's ever done, sleeping almost 5 straight hours, so we're definitely headed in the right direction!
Talking about all of this sleep, or lack thereof, is making me....sleepy! Off to bed to get some "sleep." :)
