For the last two nights, Joshua had a stretch of sleep lasting 4 hours. It made a big difference in how I feel physically to be able to get the longer stretch of sleep. It felt so refreshing to be able to sleep for 4 hours straight! It also enabled me to get out for our morning walks with a little more energy, and be more willing to walk up the steep hill from the beach. I’m determined to lose the weight gained from the pregnancy!
The little amount of sleep I got in the last 5 weeks has not taken away any of the joy of having my baby here with me. I still look at him sometimes and cry because I’m so moved by his beauty.
