I've been a bad blogger the past few days. Why you ask?
I'm sleepy. :)
A and I are both doing well. She is the sweetest thing. She smiles a lot in her sleep. I of course, believe that she hears exactly what we're saying and is responding with a smile. Others say it's gas. She loves to have her hands by her face. I call her the little Houdini. I will swaddle her up and within minutes, she has worked her hands out by her face.
I'm still trying to sleep while she sleeps. That has started being harder than I thought it would be. I often find myself staring at her when I should be sleeping. She's just so darn cute. I'm still healing from the c-section. Recovery has been easier than I thought it would be. I'm sure things will get a little easier, once I'm completely healed from that. For those of you who had a c-section...how long before you started driving? I'm pretty sure they told me not to drive for 6 weeks and I'm pretty sure THAT'S A VERY LONG TIME. Any of you drive before the 6 weeks were up?
I have the best husband in the world. Have I mentioned that before? I'm pumping a lot and always have a stock of milk in the fridge. He told me to go to bed on Friday night and sleep for as long as I want. He completely took care of A. I slept from 9:30pm - 9:30am. I had to get up and pump in the night, but other than that...sweet sleep. :) I had been going to bed and getting up with a headache. I think it was from the lack of sleep. I rarely get headaches. When I woke up on Saturday morning, it was gone! I knew that the lack of sleep would be hard for me. I have always been one to get sick if I don't get at least 8-9 hours a night. I'm adjusting, but I'm not going to lie...it has been hard.
I'm looking at the Christmas countdown on my sidebar and realize that I am SO PAST DUE on my next giveaway. A coming early threw things off a bit. :) I know what the next giveaway is...just have to go get it! And did I mention - I can't drive. (LOL)
My sister, Joy is doing so much better from her surgery (tonsillectomy). Thank you to those who were praying for her. I have missed her so much. We talk daily and see each other a lot. Not being able to see her or talk to her right after A arrived was so hard. She was able to come over and hold A for the first time last week. It was so neat to sit there watching my sister hold MY baby. At one point, we were both crying. Her babies were always like my own...still are. I have no doubt that A will hold a special place in her Aunt Joy's heart. :)
Well, I'm going to go get ready for church while A is sleeping. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
Love to all,
