“Sleeping when the baby sleeps” is key to survival in the first few months. The problem comes when your baby doesn’t sleep:
I feel ya, sister.
Weeks 9 and 10 sort of blurred together for me; they were fun AND sleep-deprived. Our girl’s two-month vaccinations really took a toll on her sleeping and eating patterns. The past seven days, Suzianne only slept in two-hour spurts, was cranky and not eating as much.
When baby don’t sleep, momma and tea cup poodle don’t sleep:
I’ve spent weeks 9 and 10 shuffling around in a just-barely-functional haze. BUT! I did make it ON TIME to my first lunch date (this is Rakelle and her baby girl):
I attended DC FLACKS happy hour for the first time in three months:
I forced my child to take a nap in the Baby Bjorn because momma really needed some Starbucks:
I got a hair cut. Please ignore the roots, they get taken care of tomorrow:
I even reached my Nike+ Fuel Band goal yesterday! (Dave and Suzianne gave it to me for Mother’s Day):
They say you get used to not sleeping.
They are morons.
True, I had a good couple of weeks, but I honestly don’t remember all the details because my brain wasn’t working.
And just when I thought I could not take anymore sleepless nights, Suzianne seems to have turned a corner. THANK THE LORD. Because we are San Diego bound on Monday and I need my happy, easy-going baby back:
Speaking of travel, thanks so much to all of you who have commented here and on Facebook with your infant travel tips!
I will try my best to make you proud. But if I don’t, I know you will enjoy reading about my misadventures anyway…
