Thoughts and Pictures
One of these days I am going to write about being a new mom and how it feels and the challenges and rewards. When I can organize my thoughts better.
For now I will tell you...it is hard! But it is so wonderful. I go through highs and lows throughout the day. Sometimes I feel completely inadequate and other times I feel like I am really getting it. I am tired lol.
Right now we are battling gas. It has been a lot of trial and error, but we have found some stuff that works like Gripe Water and the baby swing (ok, that may not be helping with the gas, but it does help Peanut to sleep). We are also having issues getting Peanut to go to sleep in his pack and play when we put him down. Even if he is sleepy, he cries and wants to be held. I would gladly hold him all night, but I cannot bring him into bed with us and sitting in the recliner gets uncomfortable after awhile (I had the same problem during pregnancy). He has to be pretty well konked out to get him to settle in it. Hopefully the swing will help more with that. I do need to get him to that first stage of sleep by holding, though. I like that time, though.
