Life As We Know It

...has changed. My house is a disaster but I only have eyes for this little brown-haired beauty in my lap all day long. Anyone who dares try to take her from me gets the stink-eye! And that includes The Marshmallow.

Everything has slowed down - like my home has its own metabolism and it's barely chugging along. Meals haven't been regular and thank goodness we have tons of food in the fridge. Showers are happening sporadically (and my hair just doesn't get done!). Laundry gets done if we need clothes but not regularly. And my goals for each day include ...nothing. There's lots of sitting around staring at Baby's face, chatting on the phone, playing games with SP and of course, nursing.

And I'm in heaven. If I was worried about postpartum, then I shall worry no more. I've not been happier in my life.

That's wonderful! Glad to hear that you are thoroughly enjoying "the moment". It is so fleeting. Sounds like you're milking it for all you can. Can't think of a better thing to do.

I am so glad for you! You are such a good mom, and who cares about the house and chores. You should take all the time you want holding her and looking at her and playing with SP. Before you know it they will be all grown up. They will look back as say WOW! Our mom was great. She loved spending time with us.
