Yesterday I went out and did errands. By myself! It was the first time I'd been alone since Madeleine and Riley were born. It was both liberating and strange.
Of course, where did I go? The maternity/baby store. We needed more of these amazing "super-swaddle" blankets that have changed our lives. The blankets are slightly stretchy, meaning that you can get a really tight swaddle going on. We use this technique during the night and whittled away our nighttime wakeups to two between 10pm and 7am. Not bad! I had a hard time finding a picture online, but the blankets are cotton thermal, made by American Baby Company.
OK, Ri-Man just woke up. More updates soon, including one on GH. Short version: he's doing pretty well.
