A lot has happened since my last post!
What’s New With Baby
Baby got her first shots yesterday which was horrific. She got to drink one vaccine. She seemed to like it. Once the shots started though, she cried in a way I’d never heard her cry before. It was so high pitched and panicked. I think it was worse for me because after the first shot she was looking at me screaming and she had to go through it 2 more times in her other leg. As soon as the nurse was done I snatched her up so fast and just lost it. I cried all the way out of the office and the whole ride home. Then, I cried more when I walked through the door (even though she was sleeping by then). I still get teary-eyed just thinking about that terrible cry.
On a happier note, baby has become even more interactive. She smiles a lot more when you talk to her. She interacts with toys. One of my favorites is when she’s laying in her bassinette while I take a shower. She’ll kick her legs and move her little arms until the mobile starts to jiggle and then she’ll laugh and laugh. So CUTE! She tries to move her mouth into different shapes as she watches your mouth move and gurgles or makes sounds back.
A miracle that I hope will stick is the babies new sleeping schedule. She’s started to take a long nap from around 11 or 12pm until 3-ish and a 7-8 hour stretch at night starting around 8pm. Besides those times she’ll take 5 little 45min or hour naps throught the day. So, I’m getting a lot more rest than I was. The only 2 downsides are: I usually don’t get to sleep until around 10 so I can’t take advantage of the full 7-8 hours at night and I miss her when she’s taking these long rests. I’ve even stole her out of bed at night just to have her next to me while I watch TV or talk to my husband.
What’s New With Me
Physically I’m still the same as I was last post. With the long afternoon nap set, I can get out with baby more often now. So, that’s nice. I can actually go to lunch with family and bring the baby instead of just rushing out to get groceries missing her the whole time. I’m starting to want to get back into shape again. So, we’ll see how that goes.
Besides that I’m just glad everything is getting better day by day. I’m trying to enjoy every minute.
