Sorry….No fancy pictures today. I haven’t washed my hair in like 10 days (gross) and Im covered in spit up and spilled/drooled breastmilk. I can’t remember if I put deodorant on this morning but it doesn’t matter because the smell of sour milk is surely strong enough to overpower any other bad smells. The sun just went down and all I’ve eaten today is 2 granola bars and a half a bowl of cereal. I never realized how much sleep deprivation destroys a persons appetite. I tried to go get a cheeseburger a few hours ago, but Kenso didn’t want to have anything to do with his carseat so I gave up. I’ll just eat some lunch meat instead. I think Kenso is considering becoming a better night sleeper, but he’s still not sure about it. I “sleep” on the sofa all night while he sleeps in his bouncy chair so papa can get at least 5-7 hours of mostly uninterrupted sleep in the bedroom. I still haven’t gone back to work so Im trying to be the primary nighttime caretaker because Bryan’s back to working full time again. Im also the milk factory so I can’t sleep for more than a few hours at a time anyway.
Despite all the not sleeping and smelling like old cheese, Im so happy to be able to spend 24 hours a day with my little guy. He’s getting so big so fast that Im already missing having a 1 week old. His eyes have officially turned from grey to brown. He’s starting to smile more and I know it’s not just because he has gas. He’s just found out he has a voice and is having fun making all sorts of little sounds (other than crying). Speaking of crying, he doesn’t do that much. He only really cries when he’s hungry or when he’s getting his diaper changed. We’re all very lucky!
Errr…..wait, what happened? This was suppose to be about me. Im doing okay. I have a very supportive and helpful husband and daughter. All this breastfeeding and forgetting to eat has been great for my figure. I gained 17lbs when I was pregnant and Ive lost almost 30 so far. Kenso likes to be held all the time (he’s sleeping on my chest right now as Im typing this) so Im gonna have big arm muscles in no time. I really look forward to when Bryan gets a day off because that means I get to catch up on laundry and get a little extra sleep. I don’t remember it being this hard (or being this tired) with my daughter so all I can think of to say is thanks mom! Having a newborn when you live with your parents is so much easier LOL!! I am absolutely loving all the snuggle time Ive been getting and I don’t mind at all the fact that I have a baby that wants to be held 100% of the time he’s awake. Im also loving watching my daughter be the best big sister ever. Its such a beautiful thing to see how much she adores her baby brother. Kenso is 5 weeks old today! I can’t believe it!!
