Here’s my sleeping beauty on day six of existence. He scrunched up his face at the flash. I was watching Celebrity Apprentice the other day and noticed Donald Trump make that same face. Here’s hoping Brandon grows up to be a billionaire, as well. I can already tell he’ll have better hair.
After a few days of trial and error, Steve and I were determined to get a schedule down and return to some sense of normalcy. We have been barely sleeping since Brandon sleeps all day and is awake most of the night. Last night I took the night shift while Steve slept and Steve took the morning shift while I slept (yes – for those of you who caught that, that means I’m not breastfeeding anymore. Please no judgments, I already received that from my pediatrician’s nurse yesterday. Long story short – it just wasn’t working out for many reasons; I won’t gore you with the details).
We forced ourselves to eat three meals during the day since we had been forgetting to do normal things like eat and brush our teeth. Today was the first time I left the house since returning to it. I just ran a couple errands, but it felt good to realize there was a world outside of our little nest here. I called to check in on my boys while I was out. Oh my god, I’m becoming that mom already and it’s only day six.
