-Regular social smiles & amusing vocalizations (Coooooo! A-oooooo!)
-Regularly sleeping for a 4-6 hour stretch each night.
-Getting a little better about naps (though today was a notable exception!)
-Prefers to be out & about to being at home...if he's crying as we get ready to go somewhere, he stops as soon as we get out the door.
-Still struggling with gassiness or some other source of pain while/after feeding...milk oversupply? Food allergies/sensitivities? (We're pretty sure that I can't drink cow's or soy milk or eat peanuts.I miss PB&Js.)
-Watching too much daytime TV while nursing.
-Managing to shower daily.
-Trying to manage expectations of self...not always doing this well.
-Still adjusting to the transition from full-time work (even though I stopped in June) to SAHMing. This is hard as hell sometimes. A lot of my identity was tied to my work, and that's gone now (or at least very much on the back burner). I intellectually know that what I'm doing now is an extremely important, worthy, and challenging job, but emotionally, it's hard not to buy into our culture's perception of being "just" a mom.
