|2 weeks after W came home we got prof pics taken...this is one of my faves!|
I'm writing this post while wearing Miss W on my chest! It's the only way I can get things done these days.
Things are getting a little better around these parts. I would say we're over the initial bewilderment period of having a baby and we've come out alive from two growth spurts. Sidenote: I really HATE growth spurts. EH and I were sitting around last night and wishing she was 10 years old already. This was after the umpteenth time she projectile vomited her milk.....aye aye aye. My daughter (or is it me??) has not figured out the difference between breast and bottle. She can guzzle breast milk from the breast two or three times an hour but a bottle works differently. So what ends up happening is I feed her the bottle because I think she's hungry...and she's already full...so UP it comes in all its glory!!
I was reminiscing last night about staying up past 10 PM. What a luxury to be able to watch a TV show or snuggle with EH and a glass of wine.....I have to remind myself over and over that this too shall pass...I've finally got the hang of breastfeeding after 7 weeks so I'm celebrating that small victory...YAY!!
We got the all clear to resume "activities" last week...six weeks out from W's birth. Can I say...I ain't really tryin' to resume no activities. By 10 PM I'm pooped out, probably haven't taken a shower that day and am most surely covered in various stains. Not exactly the right environment for romance. I still haven't figured out how to put her down for bed and leave the room... I finally got her to sleep in the co-sleeper last night and not in our bed. I haven't exactly been consistent with having her sleep in her own bed but I'm getting better.
W will be 2 months old at the end of next week! I originally wanted to take a nice picture of W every week but it became clear to me pretty quickly that things were too hectic those first few weeks for that to happen. So, instead I'm doing monthly pictures. Here's the first one:
The idea is to take the shot from above on different receiving blankets or fabric every month with the aim of putting them all together in the family yearbook at the end of the year. This first one wasn't my best shot. I hadn't figured out how to place her so I didn't have the couch in the background. Practice makes perfect!
I'm off to feed W....again....
