Three weeks! I wish I could say time is flying, ha. I hate to wish away days, but boy am I ready to get some solid sleep again. I think 5 hours would feel like heaven!! The past couple nights she just wants to be awake and held. I'm holding her as I write this post...
She still won't sleep flat on her back for more than 15-20 minutes. I've tried and tried, but girlfriend just isn't having it. Her chair or swing will do the trick most of the time. Newborns... :)
She was eating every 2-3 hours, but the past few nights she's been eating almost every hour. I'm guessing it's a growth spurt. TBD.
Although my days are completely consumed with feeding, cat napping, and laundry, I'd be lying if I said the past three weeks haven't been some of the best in my life.
I mean, 2-3-4- and 5am isn't so bad with this face looking up at me.
Although a lot of the early days of parenting fall on the mama, especially when breastfeeding, I'm certainly not in this alone. Hubs will take her throughout the day to give me a quick break- so I can be a human and shower or perhaps brush my teeth.
There's nothing quite like seeing your significant other and daughter sharing a moment like this.
Although she cries, and often, we wouldn't trade her for the world. She is our world. We'd just appreciate a few winks...eventually. :)
