So do you count a month from October 14th to November 14th or by 4 weeks? I'm not sure which to go with so I decided to post somewhere in the middle of the two dates. That and week 4 hit yesterday and I was a little too busy with Baby J's breakdowns to even pee. Either way, he's still growing (ugh) and he's somewhere close to being a month old.
Things I've learned in the last month:
1.) 5 minute showers are in these days.
2.) You aren't cool if you don't have puke and poo on your shirt, in your hair and somewhere on bare skin.
3.) There isn't Scotch Guard for the walls.
4.) Pacis hide when you need them the most.
5.) Said pacis are found in weird places like under the couch, at the foot of the bed and in the dogs toy box.
6.) You aren't above cleaning pacis in your own mouth before giving it to the little one...... just kidding..... please don't call DFaCS.
7.) Baby sleeps wherever baby wants to sleep. Even if that is in the crook of dad's arm in the chair. Baby J's head often times smells like B's deodorant. It's at least a little more pleasant than the puke smell it normally has.
8.) Sometimes it's ok to think bad thoughts about your husband as long as you don't act upon them.
9.) Postpartum sneezes are scary because of, you know, the lady factor but they're also scary because they hold the potential to wake a sleeping baby. I'm sure my brain comes close to exploding every time I try to hold one in.
10.) The love you feel for you new precious one is enough to trump this entire list.
Is it bad that I actually had to read through that list again to make sure I could count to 10? Oh sleep, you are missed.
