OK thought I'd give all an insight into life with JR. As you can see, we've moved into the nursery temporarily to facilitate feeding. Sleep, when we are blessed with it, is a miracle. I don't think I ever could've imagined how exhausting the first few weeks could be! It makes me think back in nostalgia and awe at how we used to think nothing of spending a lazy Sunday in bed reading, then going for a leisurely brunch at Beviamo. Haha! How things have changed.
I think Jordy is going through a growth spurt as well - he was rather calm and easy to settle the last few days, then cue last night. Refused to go down at 7pm despite being fed the baby equivalent of a gastramonical feast, and had to be fed almost every hour from 11pm onwards till this morning! Yipes! I'm trying to tell myself - it's great he's growing, growth spurts are exactly how they sound - an onomatopoeiac mess of crying, pooping, feeding, and noisy sleeping.
Needless to say D and I are more than zombies - but do not you worry, all these stories will come in handy at the appropriate time (i.e. Jordy's 21st maybe? haha).
Ah well, he's taking a cat nap now and I'm taking these quick minutes to reconnect with the outside world... HELLO! Oh and one fantastic thing about breast feeding? Taking the long feeding sessions to put up my legs and watch The Gilmore Girls! Finished Season 1 - supremely fantastic show. Haven't enjoyed anything this much since The West Wing :) Thanks to Jordy's Godma C for lending me all seven seasons!!! Woo hoo...
