A Day in the Life: Toddler Edition


5:00am – 6:00am: Wake up at some point and look around confused. I fell asleep on the couch and remember waking up a few times in my bed but I cried out for Mommy so she took me out to the couch and laid with me so I wouldn’t be afraid anymore, it’s dark and lonely at night in my room. Now I’m in bed with Daddy and Mommy is missing.

6:00am – 7:00am: I’m usually grumpy from waking up too early, closer to 5:00am, or happy because I woke up closer to 6:00am. Regardless, I’ve sat with my Gigi and drank some milk and am now roaming the house. Turns out Mommy was in the bathroom playing with her hair and putting that funny stuff on her face.

My Favorite Girl


I noticed that it’s been a while since I talked about my favorite girl.

For those that follow me or have enjoyed my posts on being a first time parent this is for you!

Shit is happening fast!

That’s the first thing that pops into my head. Two months ago she was still an infant, that is no longer the case! In two short months my baby left and this toddler took her place! How did that happen?!?! Continue reading “My Favorite Girl”

Delirious….


Delirious

That’s how I am going to describe myself for the rest of the month. I think between the 50-60 hour work weeks, the baby that doesn’t always believe in staying asleep all night and my own mind I’m averaging about 4-6 hours of sleep a night.

I’m dead tired each morning but by 8am I am strangely happy and slightly loopy.

My baby is 5 months old! Can you believe it?!?! Just yesterday I found out I was pregnant and I felt like my pregnancy took forever but now I look back and it’s a little over a year later. How can that be?

Did you know that at 5 months babies start to make this beautiful noise that sounds like “mama” and it melts your heart? They also think crawling is ridiculous and prefer to stand and try to walk but somehow always end up stepping on their own feet. And forget about balance, they’re all too drunk on milk or formula.

What is Sleep?!?!


Did you know when you push forth a person from your body or decide to bring a baby into your home a switch is flipped on inside of you that prevents a restful sleep? I didn’t. I don’t think I’ve slept longer than 2-3 hours at a time since Emmie was born. It’s not her fault, well mostly, either! She’ll have those rare nights when she sleeps for a 4-6 hour stretch and I will still catapult out of bed to stare at her monitor just in case. Continue reading “What is Sleep?!?!”
