My baby is less than one week old, and I’ve never wanted time to slow down more than I do right now. Ya, it’s been hard not sleeping for a week straight, but I know I’m going to blink and it’s going to be over.
I actually feel guilty for doing that to my own parents. I know they blinked and I wasn’t a baby anymore, and when you’re holding your one week old, that’s such a scary thought
I’ve had probably less than 20 hours of sleep since last Saturday night and somehow I’m not tired yet. Adeline’s least favorite thing to do is sleep for longer than 30 minutes at a time.
I am so proud of Owen. He was terrified of Adeline at first. He was shaking and howling and crying and cowering when he first came home and heard her crying. I was so nervous that was not going to change. It took him less than 24 hours to warm up to her. I feel like I have a new dog overnight. People said this might happen, but I totally didn’t believe them. He is calmer and less needy than he’s EVER been and he is already running to her every time she cries to make sure she is okay. I think they are going to be best friends.
Lastly, I don’t know what I would do without Tony. This is all easy because of him. He doesn’t have milk, but he has arms that take her more than they need to so that I can get sleep even though he’s the one that has to get up in the morning for work. I never doubted he’d be the perfect dad but when you see it in action you fall in love all over again.
