Kind of. I instilled a schedule last Thursday. Baby Wise style, I guess. We had been trying a loose form of it but no crying it out used. So we started a 2.5 to 3 hour eat, play, nap schedule. It worked! At night, we got 4 and 3 hour stretches from start to start of night feedings. We woke up feeling close to human on Saturday and decided to go out to eat and my favorite breakfast spot because it is always empty, is a large open area (no germs) and it's super close. One of the things it has going for if (being empty) turned out to be its demise. We pull up and the darned restaurant closed down. But it turned out there was an equally empty Mexican food restaurant in the back of the shopping center. We had a lovely brunch and Reid slept the whole time. It was great to be out somewhere besides physical therapy! I even had 1/2 of a mimosa...!
The coolest part of lunch was when the greeter asked us if we needed a sling for the carrier. Why, yes we do. Because that's what parents with a baby in a carrier need. It felt so surreal!
Ok, enough about us. Little Reid updates are:
His cold is much better!
Physical therapy is loosening his neck up and his foot is much better.
We think he weighed 10 lbs, 6 oz as of Monday
He has started spitting up some. In fact, he just lost a whole meal all over me...wondering if that is normal? Most the time it is less than that. Ok now worried...
He is in between newborn and size 1 diapers.
He peed on his physical therapist again this week!
He is sooo sweet when I wake him. He gets rowdy if he wakes himself, lol.
His hair is looking red!!
He loves to eat and finds comfort in it. So much so he has milk blisters on his lips. Which means I spend a lot of time in my breastfeeding chair!
Reid is 3 weeks old.

*It has only taken me 5 days to write this post a little at a time. And at this point the schedule is a little rocky! Poor Reid had a rough day yesterday! Hoping for a better more restful day today.
