Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

An Autumn update...

Autumn has become quite a happy baby. We were having a difficult time for quite a while with her sleeping (or NOT sleeping!) and as a result she was cranky much of the time. Even up 'til Christmas we were still trying to work out her sleeping issues...too much during the day then up too late at night. However, since returning home, we seem to have gotten her on a good schedule. Autumn is awake more during the day, is taking good naps, and has been sleeping through the night. Yay! She still seems to struggle sometimes with gas and that will cause a crying jag, but overall she is much more content. She has big grins and coos at us often. She enjoys looking at the toys hanging from her play gym and she always has a smile for anyone who talks to her. I don't know how much she currently weights but she is definitely getting longer. Her one piece outfits are getting too short and she'll be moving into the next size as soon as I can get them all sorted. Her feedings range anywhere from 4-6 ounces with the average being about 5 ounces, 5 times a day. We are getting into somewhat of a groove...have a long way to go with schooling and cleaning, etc.....but normalcy is returning. I'm so glad!
