And so continues the struggle of getting some consistency in Noah's routine.  Every night is different!  Last week he was every 3 hours for a few days, then on Friday he slept 6 hours (then 3 more), Sat he was up every 3, Sunday he gave me two 4 hour stretches, and last night he was back to every 3 hours.

I give up trying to predict how he'll sleep, and just pray that eventually he will become a little more consistent.  Until then, I will try not to get too frustrated and stay optimistic that it will...indeed...get better!

Remembering our little angel

For some time now, I've been thinking about getting a memorial tattoo for Olivia. B got Olivia's name in Japanese characters on his back a few months after she passed.  When Noah was born, B decided to get a tattoo of his footprints on his shoulder.  I decided to use this as an opportunity to do something.  I decided to cover up a small whale tattoo I got when I was 15 (not a well thought out decision!) with a forget-me-not flower and her footprint. I'm really happy with the final result:

Now I have a permanent and daily reminder of our little angel.  And someday we will tell Noah about his big sister watching over him from heaven.
