Already a Month Old!

I can't believe my little girl is already over a month old. We're still trying to get the hang of her sleep schedule. Which is tough since it changes frequently. She has begun sleeping at least 3-4 hours at the beginning of every night. So, I have to make sure I am in bed and sleeping during that time. The general advice of parenting is to stay in bed for as long as it takes to get 8 hours of sleep. I don't nap, so I try to follow this advice. Therefore, I'm usually in bed from about 8:30 at night til 8:30 in the morning! How life has changed!

The other change is that we were able to leave Haven with her grandparents while Chris and I rode our bikes. I've been itching to get back on my bike for about a week. I think I might have built it up to be more than it was because I was a little disappointed and pretty sore almost immediately. Especially my neck and shoulders. Ugh. I guess I'm going to have to break them back in. We had to road bike because we were by my parent's house. I find road biking to be rather boring compared to mountain biking. The thrill of a nice wreck just isn't there on a flat surface. Maybe in a few weeks I'll get to try my hand at the mountain.

So, these are the Days of our Lives: a lack of sleep, a painful journey to getting back into shape, and a complete fascination with our daughter that grows every day.
Chris's family is coming up this week to see Haven. She's going to be meeting two of her uncles and her aunt Jenny for the first time. Her Aunt Hannah has been asking if Haven can walk and talk yet. Not quite yet, but I'm sure it will be happening way before I'm ready.

"The thrill of a nice wreck just isn't there on a flat surface." Are you kidding? Thrill, maybe, but nice? I don't think so. Besides, I'm plenty nervous about wrecking - no matter what surface I'm on. I already said that I'd rather go through natural childbirth than run a marathon. Now that you've done it, too, would you think I'm completely nuts if I said I'd also choose natural labor over a bike wreck?

Maybe someday I can learn to be brave like you!
