Baby 'Boo is Here!


We interrupt the not so regularly scheduled blog posts to thank you for your kind emails and texts.  Yes, Baby 'Boo arrived.  Yes, we are both doing well.  Yes, I am operating on three hours of sleep.  

Life has taken on a strangely Groundhog Day quality.  Feed, burp, change.  Rinse and repeat.  Every two hours.  Including in the middle of the night. This repetition has allowed me to come to some realizations:

1)  Projectile poop sounds funny in theory.  It is not that funny in actuality.  Especially if you are the one being pooped on. 

2)  It is now completely appropriate to walk around with dried spit-up on my shoulder.  And on my sleeve.  And many times, on the back of my shirt. And in my hair.  And sometimes, in my mouth.  Don't ask.

3)  I would like to send some flowers and chocolates to the inventor of the White Noise iPhone app.  If it continues to help Baby 'Boo sleep, I may consider writing a sonnet in his honor. 

4)  I have become particularly good at typing with one hand.  Well, except for the times I've texted jello instead of hello and seating instead of eating.  My apologies if you have been the recipient of one of these seemingly random messages. 

5)  This sleep deprived, looking-like-a-bus-ran-me-over state is still totally worth it every time my little man grins at me.  He either recognizes me or it's gas.  I'll take it either way.

The fact that you can actually put a coherent blog post together as a new mom just amazes me. You are doing such a fabulous job of taking everything in stride!

PS - if you think the white noise machine is great just wait until you break out the swing. I swear that thing saved my life.

Hey new mommy!! So glad to hear from you... Congratulations and much love to the little man :) and one finger or no finger, pls do keep posting whenever you can!

Kristen said...

So thrilled that he is here and that all is well. I'd say that motherhood gets easier with time, but that would be a tad unrealistic. Glad to know that you are adjusting to the goop that accompanies little people.

You had a BABY?! And you're here???
Wow. You are so amazing. You are my new hero.

There is a whole world of realization and obsession and lowered expectations with babies, right?

Congrats. I'd like more details like about how the heck you are here, tomorrow. :)

So embarrassed that It has taken me so long to comment on this post! I love the reference to rinse and repeat, because that is exactly what it islike! Only now starting to feel normal! So love that we are enjoying this journey somewhat together and once I lose my baby weight I am making your macaroon recipe!! Amazing!
