Days These Days

Life with a newborn. Not much more to say, is there?  Eating, sleeping, diapers.  That is our life.

There’s really only one part of our day that’s been relatively consistent.  We wake up around 4 or 5 am to eat and fall back asleep around 6ish.  Then up again around 8 or 9, depending on how long after 6 we fall asleep.

After that, the day is at Miss M’s beck and call.

Sometimes she takes another nap after eating her mid-morning meal.  Sometimes she stays awake until lunch time or later (like yesterday).  Sometimes she feeds all day long, every hour.  Some days she takes cat naps throughout the day.  Some days she takes several big naps all day.  It just depends.  

Scheduling doctor appointments and visits are a crapshoot.  I just make sure she eats before I pack her in the car and hope she snoozes a bit during the drive to wherever we’re going.  Besides the doctor, we’ve been to the farm store, out to eat a couple of times, school to say hi, and we’ve walked down the driveway to get the mail.  Those are our big outings so far.  And everything is scheduled during her nap time, not eating time.

All I know is the swing works for naps.  The Ergo works when she’s extra clingy.  The pack n play only works for one nighttime sleep.  Momma works every time.
