today i decided to try and sleep when the baby sleeps as everyone tells me to do (it is harder than it sounds for sure! but we went down for a nap today at noon and slept almost 4 hours it was amazing and she slept the whole time
i am a drill sergeant with eating, sleeping, changing but she really is getting into a routine of course she calls the shots but i enforce her great behavior and it is huge progress to happier baby and mommy!
she is so smart right now she is sleeping on her daddy's chest like a little angel
the last few days (and nights) have been rough even though she is so easy it is hard to completely rearrange sleeping/eating/hygiene habits i just try to make sense of it all
i cry alot which i hear is all very normal
i get overwhelmed with love for her thoughts of her future how they grow up so fast how i have so much purpose the changes in my life and perspective and then there is also the lack of sleep the pain and forgetting to eat in time...
not to mention all the hormone flux that goes on right after birth you are just weepy and sentimental and overwhelmed with all sorts of awe...
i am surprised at how quickly she has adapted to her new environment when the dogs start barking she doesn't even flinch
they are all doing so well with her there is dog hair on her stuff but i am resigning that one and vacuuming daily a new mom has to let go of some the anal things for a little while she has way more important things to do/be/contribute to
my biggest piece of new mom advice: just don't stress she will feel it and it will make things harder
stock up on frozen pizza take out/delivery menus and stouffer's lasagna
