Who needs sleep?

Today was the first day I was on my own. Well of course I had Joey here, but since we have been home from the hospital I have had Christian or my mom here all day. I wasn't really nervous about today. I mean I am a mom, I have those "mom instincts" and think I have done a pretty good job so far. I think my biggest fear is what if I have to go to the bathroom while I'm feeding him and there is no one to hand him to. Silly I know, but it's funny the things that go through your mind when you have a newborn.

So our day started with changing a stinky diaper, then a bottle. He went back to sleep and I washed all his bottles and put away his laundry. Watched a little TV, then time for another changing and feeding. It was about lunch time then and I knew daddy would be coming home for lunch so I tried to keep him awake for a little bit. That lasted a whole 15 minutes and he was back out. Daddy came home for lunch and then was back to work. So now mommy is alone again. check some emails and facebook for a little while then time for another changing and feeding. By this time is was after 4pm, so I decided to try and take a little nap before daddy would be home. That didn't happen. Of course now Joey wants to be up and awake. so he was up for about an hour and then slowly went back to sleep. I thought to myself, I have 30 minutes or so before daddy gets home to try to sneak in a nap. I was asleep for about 10 minutes before Lexie starts barking like crazy at something outside.

So no nap for mommy on day one, but it was a good day overall. I am still taking it easy this week as I am still recovering myself, but hopefully next week I'll be moving around a bit more and can do some things around the house. Tomorrow is another day, maybe I'll get a nap. :)

  1. Kristen, I'm so glad you're documenting this. I know it's hard to do bc you're super busy taking care of a newborn, but do keep it up. It's a great way to share, and to be able to not go too crazy. Writing is wonderful therapy! :) Keep it up! He's a cutie pie! Aren't little boys wonderful? (Yes, I'm totally biased!)
