A Good Night
E slept from 7:00 last night to 6:00 this morning without waking up. His night sleep has been back on track, generally speaking, for a week or two now, but he hasn't had a night like last night in a long while. I managed to pump only once, at 3:00 a.m., in those eleven hours, which is quite a record for me. I pumped close to two ounces on each side, which didn't seem like much, actually. I was so engorged this morning, I had to hold him out in front of me when I carried him from the crib to the recliner. Nursing was such a relief. It occurred to me that I physically need him, just as he physically needs me. What a wild, beautiful way we're designed.
