wow!! yetsreday our little munchkin hit the 2 week mark! Jeepers… i know that its cliche…but time flies!!
So far everything has been great! Jessie is such an angel! she sleeps and eats very well and doesnt cry and fuss much! she is very chilled and relaxed… when she’s awake, she’s very alert and loves to “look” at things.
We’re not suffering badly from sleep deprivation. Granted by 9:30pm im pretty much finished and can sleep through most things! before Jessie, i could only sleep if the room was pitch black and there was no noise! Now i can sleep with the lights on, the heater on, sitting up and through Jessie’s grunting and groaning (she’s a noisy sleeper!!! we call her “grunty groany” )!! but i do wake up when she starts to niggle for comfort or a feed.
we love her to bits! shes the sweetest most gorgeous baby ever!! (spot the new proud parent) i must say, before Jessie, babies crying used to make me a bit sad, now, hearing my own child cry… what a difference! it breaks my heart! she only cries when she’s left unclothed for too long at bath time and if im late in getting to her for a feed, so its not like she hurting or anything, but still! it makes me so very sad! the other night we were at friends for dinner and we wanted to get home before her feed, but she woke up before we got home. and she cried and cried!! i was in tears by the time we got home! (silly me)
Its quite an adjustment to one’s lifestyle having a newborn. you go from eating every meal together, to rejoicing in the days that you get to eat together!! we dont often get to sit at a table and eat together anymore… most often Bryan will bring breakfast or dinner up to our bedroom and we eat there. but its ok! once jessie is in a routine we can work around that… but for now, shes only 2 weeks old and we’re all adjusting!
Bryan has started a new job, one that requires him to go to an office on a daily basis. its been hard adjusting from having him home all the time to not having him home… ive had a few wobblies about it… but im sure that it will all work out in the end! i just have to figure out what to with my time and how to use it efficiently! itll happen too!
God is incredible and He alone has given me the strength to deal with everything! im grateful for the hard birth and for everything surrounding it! Life is wonderful!!
