For the time being, we lost our internet connection, so it has been a while since I signed in (the last post was written offline and posted through my husband's work computer). It has been a pleasure to read all your comments!
Until we have internet again, I expect my future postings will be somewhat irregular, and I won't be very good at keeping up with answering comments or emails, but I'm still there. I do have to say that, even though I sure miss blogging, emailing, and my favorite recipe websites, being offline frees up time for other pursuits, something which is of immense importance in this busy season of our lives.
Anyways, I hope you all have had (or are still having) an enjoyable vacation.
As of a little update, I can tell you that we're currently going through a severe case of sleep deprivation. :o) Tehilla, who has been sleeping pretty well at night so far, suddenly began to prefer sleeping during daytime, and does not settle to sleep at night unless she's right by our side, and often likes to nurse through the night. We hardly had any sleep during the previous week but I'm holding on by reminding myself that, as exhausting as various stages of babyhood might be, they are usually short.
So far, I've been skeptical about co-sleeping, even though I knew it works well for some families. Shira had never shown any inclination towards it, and always preferred sleeping in her own bed. However, now it seems that co-sleeping is just about the only way either of us can get any sleep at all.
I hope to pass on to a stage of less exhaustion and more productivity, soon. In the meantime, I remain your tired but cheerful friend,
