A New Woman
I feel like a new woman today. Little Man slept almost 8 hours last night! Some of you may not care or understand, but this is one of the most exciting things that could happen to me right now. After a little breakfast, he then slept long enough for me to take a shower, eat breakfast, unload the dishwasher, and do a bunch of laundry-related tasks among other things — all before 11 o’clock! These are all very normal, mundane things, but I haven’t been able to do that since before he was born.
Sadly, I think part of it has to do with him not feeling so well. Poor baby has been fussy, clingy, and gassy the past two days. We balanced a productive morning with an afternoon mostly full of nursing, cuddling, and rocking (which is productive in a completely different way, I suppose).
I’m also wearing a pair of non-maternity jeans today, which goes quite a ways in helping me feel more like my old self again.
