5 Weeks

I've made it 5 weeks now. My mom came about 2 weeks ago - or a little less. It's been so wonderful to have her here. I survived just over 3 weeks on my own. (although not without lots of help from our church and melissa). Those 3 weeks are a little of a blur and I don't remember too much. I do know that Landon slept a lot during the day and slept 3 hour chunks at night and would always go back to sleep. I didn't do too much around the house or going out, just for apts and things that I had to do.
Once my mom got here we have had tons of fun. It's just wonderful to have the company all day, someone to talk to all day. It helps so much. And as her leg heals more and more (she broke it 8 weeks ago) we are going out more and more. She takes us out to eat and we go shopping. Although she can't jump around with us, it's helpful to have her walk with Carson (they are at the same speed right now :)) and hold his hand so he doesn't run off while I get landon out of the car and set up in the stroller.
Landon started waking up a lot more throughout the day. He cries a lot now and doesn't nap too well. We've had a few really bad nights too. he has never gone more than 4 hours at night and that isn't too often or consistent. I'm so thankful my mom is here now for landon's fussy times to help me out. I've heard 6 weeks is the peak time, and he should start doing a little better soon. I try to keep him on as consistent of a schedule as possible during the day, and every night I go to bed hoping that's the night he sleeps longer. I know it will happen one day - it's just a matter of waiting.
Sorta a cliche saying but "every baby is different" and that is so true. I have to stop comparing him to what Carson did b/c he a different person and born on a different schedule.
Overall we love having Grammie here with us all the time. Carson loves his baby brother and loves to bring the pacifier to him when he's crying or kiss him and touch him and lay down beside him. :)
I love my boys! :)
p.s. I LOVE FALL!!!! (and the fact that I'm not pregnant)
