this or this....

so...this is growing in my hallway....
Elliot is the only one here who does not want this mountain tackled....he is rather fond of this growing bed. My plan today was/is to reduce this mountain...then Hubby noticed a leaky faucet in the backyard and turned the water off....so instead I get this.....
Sweet baby... I love baby-gazing...this boy ...my son...he is so beautiful. Now if he would just get his days and nights straightened out. 1am-4am...hello..Mama, I don't want to sleep....rather Daddy...because thank goodness...Daddy has had 2weeks off and someone is making sure Mama gets a little sleep. But, Daddy heads back to work on Tuesday...my sweet boy will be two weeks by then....and we have to figure this out.
Trying to get this Mama thing down....stressing about breast feeding, Ren's weight gain, getting enough sleep, little bit of jaundice to work itself out, just wanting to be a good Mama...
I felt like I had failed Ren somehow when his one week weight was 6 pds 10 oz, his birth weight was 7pds 8 oz, a couple more oz lost than the doc likes to see...we go in again on Wednesday for another weigh in...in the meantime this Mama is working hard to make sure this boy eats...and eats long enough to get the hinds milk.
I know we will get this and figure it all out and Ren will be a fat little baby in no time and I will get my Mama-legs under me...in the mean time...
I will just do some peaceful baby-gazing and enjoy my cuddle-bug....

Hi NIli, he is just beautiful! I like your growing mountain of laundry...it makes me feel better about mine! And I like that you are baby gazing. Enjoy these early miraculous days. He'll get it figured out soon enough. So glad Ed has been helping to make sure you get some rest! I'm praying that Ren will adjust and that Ed's transition back to work goes smoothly for all. I always feel bad for the new daddies when they have to go back to work!

Wish I could be there to take our babies for a stroll together!

Praying for you!

Love,
Amy

Don't worry. The laundry will always be there. Before you know it, your little guy will be exploring everywhere and won't want to cuddle long enough. I wish I could let housework go-good for you! I mean it :).
