I had a very funny thing happen the other day that made me feel like a "real new mom". I was about to feed Alexandra so I completely stripped off my shirt. Then she decided to have a poop, so I got up (still topless) to change her diaper in the kitchen. As I am changing her, she starts wailing, and in response to her cries both of my ta-tas start POURING milk all over the floor. Then my puppy Cosmo comes running over and drinking my milk off the floor! I was standing there, topless, dripping milk, wailing baby, and Cosmo loving it all! Woah... what have I become!?
Things have definitely improved since my last post. Baby A must have just had a bad day (I hope I'm not jinxing it by writing this down!) because she has been great the past week. She cries but is pretty easy to console. We took a few outings this week, went to Indigo to buy the Happiest Baby on The Block book (thanks Egg for the recommendation!) and have a coffee, we went to a coffee shop to meet a friend and we did groceries. i am starting to settle into this new mom thing. But I do have one guilty confession and am wondering what other people do/think. Alexandra is being great and going back to sleep after our 6 or 7am feeding and letting me sleep another 3 hours. So I am sleeping until 9 or 10am. I feel guilty for this. Do you think I should be getting up and going at 7am or is it ok to sleep? For both her and me?
One other guilty admission I have to make. Something I NEVER thought I would say or even think:
I am currently hating my dog. I want to cry just writing that. But seriously, I have NO patience for him! His annoys me beyond belief. I feel bad for him because I know it has been a big change for him too , but his shitting on the floor and jumping on the table and getting in my way ALL of the time is not helping his cause if he wants me to love him! I am seriously hoping that as things settle down I start to love him again, but right now, I honestly wish I had someone I could give him to for a couple months . I hope no one is too offended by this, I know I probably would think I was a total bitch if I had read someone writing this before I found myself in this situation. I guess its easy to judge until you live it.
Anyways, here is a pic of my cutie-pie in her "big girl" uggs!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
