In the last 5 days I have opened my laptop exactly zero times. We’ve been dealing with frequent feedings and a baby that wakes up every hour at night plus breastfeeding troubles and pain. It’s not all bad, of course. I love my little Lexi Smexi. And every day she’s becoming smarter and more loveable.
I just wanted to check in here and share this photo. It melts my heart every time I look at it. So much that it warranted its own post.
I am looking forward to the time when I can rely on Alexis to nap for an hour or two or sleep for longer stretches than 1-2 hours. In the meantime, I’m enjoying lots of snuggles and dealing with a very demanding baby that knows what she wants ( even though she doesn’t always clue us in).
Also, I said it on my Facebook page and I’d like to repeat it here:
The birth story IS coming. I just finished picking out photos for it out of a ton of completely post-inappropriate ones 🙂 It might take me some time to write it though. I’ve attempted to start but couldn’t get past a few sentences. It’s a somewhat emotional post and my labor wasn’t exactly a straight forward 6 hour labor, so I’m waiting for the inspiration to strike at the time that Lexi is napping, which is seldom. About a week ago, I gave myself a month to finish writing it, but I am hoping I can do it in less time, again, if Alexis allows. It doesn’t help that my prime writing time (when I nurse) is now taken up by teaching Lexi to latch properly.
Also, I’m totally behind on weekly Alexis updates and 2 postpartum updates *sigh…*
Hope all is well in the real world, because I feel quite removed from it 🙂
