Man oh man.     Just like that it’s been 10 weeks with our girl Molly.      I’ll tell you, time is flying.  It seems like it was just July and we were having a baby and now it’s almost October!   I’ll say, month 2 was easier than month 1.   Molly is less temperamental and seems to be a little easier to please.   She’ll even sit in her swing for more than 5 minutes.      I love it when people ask if she’s sleeping through the night.  Um …. no.  We wake up at least twice if not more to eat.  The plus is she has figured out her days and nights and typically falls right back asleep after she eats.   However, the whole “once their 12 lbs they sleep through the night” rule is a joke.  We’re weighing in at 13 lbs and I don’t see us sleeping through the night anytime soon.     I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again.  This shit is so incredibly hard.  The baby stuff is getting easier but that doesn’t make the relationship stuff any less challenging.  Anyone who thinks a baby “fixes” a relationship […]
