Soccer, and sleeping(or lack thereof)

Happy Wednesday! 

Things have been busy around here. J starts neighborhood preschool(same group as last year) next week, he started soccer on Monday, and of course all the new baby things are keeping me busy. 

I love it! I love being busy with my family and experiencing all their ‘firsts.’ J had his first soccer practice and of course he was the loud one distracting everyone with his ninja moves… We’re working on it ha. Tonight is his first game, I’m so excited! Get ready for pic overload;)

Lily has been starting to smile and lately her dad and grandma Coco have gotten most of them. I may be a little jealous.

Nursing play time has continued. I’m subject to pretty much anything j wants to do to me. That day he covered me in stickers, it could be much worse.

Let’s talk about sleep. I’m always curious what others do, so I thought I’d share! 

With a newborn you don’t get a lot of sleep since you’re up every 2 hours feeding them. I exclusively breastfeed, so it’s all on me to feed her(which I actually love A LOT, it’s our bonding time).

I try really hard to feed her every 2 hours during the day and keep a eat, wake, sleep schedule (from the book Baby Wise) during the day and then an eat, sleep every 3 hours at night.

She’s doing really well, but I struggle keeping her in her own bed at night. I just love snuggling, but I know that makes sleep training later more difficult. So, I’ve been keeping her in her bed(it’s right next to mine in our room) throughout the night and then her last feeding before we wake up I snuggle her, so from 5am-7:30am. 

Some nights are better than others, but I know this time ends and I just want to cherish it. So if you see me with giant bags under my eyes or lots of make up piled on, you’ll know it’s because I’m up all night with this little dream:)

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
