I can't tell. My days and nights are running together. When was the last time I slept? Oh, yeah. June 26th.
I know it's not a baby blog, but how can a new mother possibly refrain from showing off her little munchkin?? I already want her to stay a tiny baby! :) I'm glad she's finally got bright eyes and is looking around at her new world. Every day she seems more like a little person rather than a little stranger. And swaddled up in her green blanket, she looks like a pea pod. A cute little pea pod sleeping on the couch with Daddy. :)
We've had a trying week, but it seems that last night (Friday night) was a good step forward. I was able to actually sleep most of the night with Victoria at my side. She won't sleep in the cradle yet -- at least not for any length of time. But she's so tiny, and so used to the warmth of another human and being cuddled up that I don't blame her for not wanting the cradle just yet. As she gets a little bigger, I'm thinking she can sleep more in it for naps, and then graduate to it at night.
So today I feel refreshed! (Sorta.) I'm still a little weary from nursing and getting to know this little creature, but it's nice to feel a little more human. I'm hoping to tackle (slowly) the cleaning and organization of my sewing room/office, since when I go back to work, I'll eventually want Victoria in there with me while she plays. Not looking forward to going back to work -- please continue to keep us in your prayers for 1) our house-hunting, and 2) that I'll be able to be a stay at home mom sooner than later.
Well, that's all for now. Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my announcement post, too! It's so nice to have such friends. Take care, all.
