3 Weeks---Cabin Fever!
My sister asked me today what has happened in the past 3 weeks that I wasn't prepared for. I replied with 3 things:
1) Sleep Deprivation: I knew to expect it, but jeez, you literally do not sleep. I"m up to feed him every 2 to 3 hours, and I'm so paranoid that he's going to stop breathing that I spend the down time just staring at him. I've started to relax about this a little bit, but I still wake up in a panic.
2) The Penis: Almost every time I change his diaper, so 20 times a day...he waits until his unsuspecting Mother moves the diaper away for just a second, and then he strikes! I've been hit in the eye, my hair, my mouth...I can't move fast enough.
3) Being a Mom: I know that Mom's love their children, but until he arrived, I had no idea how much. The love I have for this little baby is over-whelming, and the most amazing thing I've ever experienced. I feel like he's been here the whole time, and everything going on around me is insignificant. It's truly beautiful.
