The last few weeks have led me to ask myself... whose breasts are these anyway??? Mine?!?!?!?!  Apparently... since they're attached to my thoracic cavity.  Let me just say that it's pretty weird to use your boobs to feed your kid, to put it brashly.  Don't get me wrong - it's very satisfying, and nothing could possibly be more convenient, and it's so soothing and comforting for him - but still weird.  I'm still not sure how this thing even came out of me.

I have to use this method to say Thank You one more time to Jacinta for throwing my baby shower.  Jay and Jacinta have been so great to Trevor and me.  Now that we only have a couple months left in Vancouver, we think daily of how much we are going to miss them.  Our personalities have fit so well with theirs and they have been our closest friends here.  I have made a few other friends that I've spent limited amounts of time with, and Trevor has one friend that he knows from Camosun in Victoria, but he has only spent time with him doing school stuff - Jay is his only friend that he does fun stuff with.  And while we may or may not seem like it, Trevor and I are both still fairly shy.  It's also easier to be lazy, which is why we don't have people over more often.  I enjoy entertaining guests a lot, and Trevor does too - we just get lazy.  I digress.  The point is, we will miss Jay and Jacinta tremendously!!!  

I have another momentous occasion to announce.  Background first.  Grant has been getting up only once a night for nearly a week consistently, and the night before last, Tuesday night, he slept through the entire night - from 11:30pm til 7am!!! Woohoo!  Swaddling really works, if any of you haven't tried it.  Last night he was up once for a short, short nurse, which I expected, since he didn't nurse around 11 or 11:30pm, which is what we're trying for.  His schedule was funny yesterday evening due to the baby shower and the fact that for some reason he had a marathon nurse just as the shower was starting, that nerd.  He's supposed to save the marathon for 11pm so he can sleep all night.  

He continues to be an amazing baby.  Trevor's mom and sister, Susan and Michelle, have been here since Monday evening and leave on Friday evening, and he has continued to always be on his best behavior!  He is happy and content wherever we go and happy to be held by anybody - I hope it lasts!!!  

I'm off to delve into the laundry once again.  I dream of my own washer and dryer in a cozy laundry room where I will enjoy doing laundry like Kate Gosselin.  I enjoyed laundry before and I will again!!!  Except maybe for the folding.  Until next time.  


  1. Hi Skye! What a great post! I have to agree with you on the BF thing, it is so weird in the beginning. Eventually your boobs do get smaller once your baby doesn't need so much milk, so enjoy it while it lasts I guess? lol ;)

    I can't believe he slept for almost 8 hours straight and is just barely 1 month old, how awesome is that! Way to go baby Grant! He's soo sweet. On another note, I'm so sorry I wasn't able to make it to your shower :( I hope it was still fun without me...if that's even possible-hehe j/k! Anyhoo-keep the posts coming!

  2. Aww Skye your updates are wonderful! (And humorous, best way to start a post!) I look forward to reading more from you in the future =)

  3. Awww! We're going to miss you too!
