We got home from spending a week at my parents for the Independence Day holiday. I love fresh starts after a week of fun. I feel rejuvenated and more determined being back to a routine.
Ren slept so well at my parents. We put her in a pack and play in a dark closet, she slept though the night every night! She has been sleeping in a pack n play in my bedroom since she was born but the first night back home she woke up 3x. I keep the windows in my room open but with it being summer it gets light at 5am and Ren was waking up with the Sun.
So I bit the bullet. I put her in her crib in another room with blackout curtains. It’s been two nights and she’s slept longer than she ever has at home!!
And so have I! After years of not sleeping through the nights I swear I have gotten more sleep with this infant than all my other babies combined!
“They come in the order they are supposed to.” My neighbor tells me every time I talk to her.
I think she must be right.
So I am taking down the pack n play in my room today and I am feeling all sorts of pumped!
I think Ren most likely is our last baby and I’m finding that instead of feeling sad or nostalgic as she moves from phase to phase I’m excited! But honestly I’ve never loved the newborn / first year. I love my kids and think they are adorable, but I feel more relieved the closer they get to their first birthday.
Although as I have written each week about my relationship with her, my baby, and my relationship with my body, I have been enjoying the present moments so much more. I am finding more gratitude and love in places I never noticed before. It's been so wonderful.

Education is KEY to setting yourself up for your best possible birth. Knowing your options and how to advocate for yourself makes a huge difference.
With the main reason people develop hemorrhoids is from pressure in the bottom, it seems unlikely many women will experience pregnancy and birth unscathed.
