2.5 weeks old/wide awake/afternoon nap/adorable little arms/diaper bag instead of a purse/sleepy girls
Thank goodness for moms and their helping hands! This week my mom came up to help us out which meant:
I had a chance to wash my hair!
I got some sleep!
the housework got done!
we ate actual meals!
I learned a million things about looking after a baby!
This week was all about learning; trying different types of diapers to see which brand fit Tavi the best, getting to know Tavi's cues and needs, learning how to fight the urge to stare at her little face in order to get things done. Since Tavi is still too young to have any sort if routine it's pretty much anything goes, respond to her needs.
The help my mom has given us has been great. She leaves tonight and I'm a bit nervous, but she's shown me the ropes and I think I can do this! Jay's here to help too obviously, but he works and this is our first child so everything is new to both of us. I predict many phone calls home for advice!
