On Sleep

by - 11:00:00 PM

My baby is three and a half weeks old. I'm finally getting back in the swing of things. Well. I'm attempting to get back in the swing of things. I swear, I feel like I'm sweating trying to maintain my household chores, let alone get on top of them. (Let's not even think about the 13 credits I was dumb enough to enroll in this semester.)

Abby is an angel, waking up on average twice in the night ("nighttime" beginning at about 1:30am). She and I usually trek out the the couch to watch Hulu during the wee hours of the morning so New Daddy Dustin (a.k.a. incredibly busy and overworked Dustin) can catch as much sleep as possible. I think sometimes I'm the worst mom in  the world. There are times I can hear her stirring, awake, (note: Abby doesn't cry, she just moves around, patiently waiting for a hint of attention) and I lay with my head on my pillow - still as can be - silently willing her back to sleep. Three hours goes so fast; this I've realized since becoming a mom.

I still cherish every moment with her, sometimes I'm just trying to keep my eyes open to do so.

This is how I spend the majority of my days

A scene I'm sure Dustin sees far too often for his liking
Ironically I can here her stirring now. Perfect timing.
