Zoe is the sweetest baby girl. I mean, how can a baby girl not be sweet? She has the biggest smile and loves to cuddle. And then with all the frilly dresses, giant bows, colorful pinks and lilacs in her clothes...a recipe for cuteness. She is so tiny. Just now weighing in at 9lbs 6oz. she is still wearing some newborn clothes. Her favorite thing is to be swaddled very tightly by the master (her daddy) and put in her swing. She sleeps there. Sleep--we are still working on that.
I forgot how hard the lack of sleep was. In fact, I forgot almost everything from that time with Q because I was so sleep deprived! We are improving but that is difficult. The "sleep when she sleeps" is just not possible. I mean, I have a family to feed, clothe...when would I do the laundry or make dinner if I slept when she slept? It sounds like a good piece of advice, but I've not really found it to be all that practical. In fact, all that is practical has really gone out the window at this point. We are in survival mode. And, it is working so far. We'll stick to what works for now.
Promise promise promise myself that I will do better on this post. I've got lots to say:)
