Hello All!! I’m a little over two weeks into motherhood and I can say this is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’m tired, nervous, anxious, overjoyed an overwhelmed! Some days I’m thrilled and some days, I’m on the verge of tears. Apparently, these feelings are all “normal”.
I’m still getting use to RJ and he is still getting use to everything. My Godmother was here with us for a few days when we got home. Though, I did most of the work when it came to the baby *my choice*, it was nice to have a talking adult around during the day. Now, it’s me RJ and the girls during the day. I find myself counting down the hours until Hubby gets home! Not just so I can take a uninteruppted nap, but I CRAVE the company!
The moment to moment baby duties are going well. He is a good eater, I’m breastfeeding, and I have the diaper changing down. Our issue comes with sleeping. My mission is to get him to sleep in his bassinet, pack n’ play, swing or something other than our arms or on our chest at night. Yeah, I know that’s not the best place for him to sleep, but when you need sleep, you do what works! Let me specify, I want him to sleep in those things for longer than 30mins, at night. As I type, he is in his bassinet, and I must say we are approaching the 3o to 45 min mark:)
I always heard parenthood was a learning experience and learning is what we are doing. It gets hectic but I wouldn’t trade it or my son for anything! Well I think my 30 mins are up…and so is RJ…gotta go!
