I can NOT believe that it’s been four weeks since Ainslie came into our lives!!!
I remember four weeks ago being with my husband in the hospital, begging him not to leave. The thought of being alone, on my own, was too much. I also begged him to save me from the salad that was presented to me for dinner. He got me thai food.
It’s been a wild ride, but we’re doing it. We’re learning about it all…one minute at a time. I love that I’ve become a comfort for her. I love that she still wants to fall asleep on my chest.
I’m also grateful for the comments on Jenna’s post which encouraged ‘Moms on Call‘. I hit the sleep deprivation wall this week and decided that something had to change. We’ve moved from 2-3 nightly wake-ups, to one very predictable wake-up around 2am…within the FIRST night. I got the app for my phone and we read through the sleep section together on the kindle. I NEVER thought that I would be a sleep schedule kinda person, but now we have a partnership around her sleep, we’re getting more sleep, we have structure in our day, and it’s been good for everyone. Honestly, it’s one of the best things we’ve done recently.
We’ve learned so much in four weeks. More that I’ve probably ever learned in my life. I still can’t believe that she’s ours…I’m still so in awe of it all.
