Today Joash is five weeks old. He is looking pretty good, don't you think?
We are doing well too. We are still getting up when Joash wakes at night to feed and still supplementing with the bottle, but he is letting us get some longer stretches of sleep at night, which is so nice.
However, it still can be tough to get up in the night. Wilbert still has some very funny things he says when he is waking up in the middle of the night. Here are some of my favorites. I always say, "Wilbert," and then wait for a response and then say, "Will you please get up and get the bottle for Joash." Here are my latest favorite responses:
- I don't know.
- I will get up in 22 minutes.
(And my favorite, which may have been influenced by watching Avatar before going to bed)
- I am in the Navy Reserves and there a plug in the hall to warm up the bottle.
