zleepless zoey

Time check: Zoey Day 4, 3:45 am.

This baby has been kicking our butt. Last night she was awake and agitated from 11pm to 5am. I calmed Zoey by walking laps around our building with her over my shoulder, and later, by just walking on the treadmill at our gym. (I burned 25 calories too!)

Meanwhile, Kirsten was breastfeeding her every hour. Little Z was too agitated to latch on properly most of the time. In the morning she slept four hours straight and woke up to two exhausted and worried parents struggling to get enough food into her...

Tonight she's been a lot better, in that her only complaint has been hunger, not overall existence. We woke her up at 1:30am to eat and she's been eating straight for the past two hours.

Unfortunately, neither of her parents has had much to eat. When Zoey's done with her feeding we'll finally indulge in last night's leftovers.

Since we brought Zoey home, we've had one meal together...breakfast, which I ate with one hand while the other calmed my girl.

But then earlier today, I had Zoey to myself for an hour on the balcony. She was wide awake and happy the whole time, grabbing my finger, lounging on my lap and looking up at me with her big blue eyes.
