Last weekend, my Darling wifey had a confrence she had to attend for work. She was very nervous leaving the baby for the first time ever! I think she was even more nervous leaving him with his daddy! To be honest, I was a little worried I couldn’t handle it. I even SMSed my cell leader, asking him to pray for me! Seriously. Sara’s mum takes care of Nathan during the day, and we take over after we come back from work. Mums usually very tired after a whole day with Son, so we try not to bother her at all at night. I came home around 5:30pm on Friday, and took over from her. I fed him once at around 6pm, and then he went to sleep around 8:30pm. He woke up at 9:30, for his final meal before his real sleep time. Usually its a struggle to get him to eat and sleep, but thank God, this time it was relatively easy. He slept till around 1:30am, and then its time for his mid-night feed. This was was a little harder, but eventually he ate, and around 2:15am he slept. Then the hard part came! Nathan woke up around 3:30 am and realized he had not seen Sara all day! Sara is the one who feeds him at mid-night. He refused to fall back asleep! He kept looking around the room, his whole mood changed. It took me a while but he finally slept around 5am, after an additional feeding. At 7:30am, he woke up for a while, and mum took over. And what was mummy doing last night?

Sara deserved a break! Love you darling!
