As I sit down to reflect on the past week, I can’t help but feel like it’s been a couple months (in a good way). We’re already feeling extremely settled into our new life.
Maybe it’s because our expectations were set accurately (low). Or maybe it’s because Mac seems so easy (it’s all relative and compared to Abby, taking care of a newborn feels like a breeze…so far). Or maybe it’s because Abigail is so proud and excited to be a big sister.
Whatever it is, we couldn’t be happier.
Yes, we’re lacking in the sleep department (especially after last night when both little ladies were up multiple times).
Yes, my nipples feel like someone’s stabbing them with knifes every time Mac latches on (mainly on the right side…TMI for some, but I’m not afraid to be honest on here…it’s a mommy blog, after all). I’m currently trying to retrain her on her latch over there…talk about OUCH!!!
Yes, I’ve had my moments of baby blues where I just start crying over the silliest things (like when I went to cut into my egg this morning and it flew off the plate…it was traumatizing for no apparent reason).
And yes, I’m a little nervous about Travis going back to work next week full time (I had my first solo trial run this morning and I think all three of us ladies passed with flying colors).
But these are not complaints. They’re realities. And they’re all a part of having a newborn. And we’re madly in love with our newborn. I mean, how could we not be???
Anyway, I’m just here to say that all is well and things are going better than we could have imagined. Thank you all for your kind words…we appreciate them so much!
Have a happy weekend,
