2.5 weeks into this gig called motherhood and it has been a roller coaster! I can go from totally overwhelmed and sleep-deprived to completely blissed out in a matter of a couple of hours. I’ve heard this is common among those with newborns. Even though I’ve spent the past couple of nights sleeping upright (LONG story), I must be getting 5 or so hours of sleep per night because I’ve been feeling pretty good. Last night I managed to make pasta with marinara sauce. I even added soy ground round, zucchini, onions, garlic, and mushrooms to the sauce. Being able to make a dinner like that feels like a victory! Every time I wash a sink of dishes or put away a basket of laundry, I feel like I’ve accomplished a major task. Since I spend 90% of my time in my living room/dining room (see “nights sleeping upright” above), I like to keep it relatively tidy. It helps keep me sane (sanity is in short supply these days!).
A great friend came by last week to take pictures of Henry and I received them last night. They are wonderful!
And on that note — baby cries! Must go! 😉
