Last night I went to bed shortly after the baby went to sleep. Which never happens because it is the only time of the day when I get to be by myself. I mostly enjoy the extended break I get from a baby attached to my boob. So I stay up way too late, even though I’m tired because the sooner I go to sleep the sooner I have a baby attached to me again! The days are long and she is demanding and being home with her all day is wonderful but oh man, bed time never comes fast enough. Every time I put her down for the night, there is a literal sigh of relief. She sleeps about 8-9 hours straight before she wakes up, usually around 6:00am. Which should be any minute now.
But last night I was so tired. I was in bed by 9:30pm and got many hours of uninterrupted sleep, until woke up at about 2am and haven’t fallen back asleep yet! So I will be just as tired today. Apparently it is mandatory for mommy to be tired!
The funny part is, I really miss my baby! I’ve been laying in bed for hours. I’ve looked at Pinterest for things we could do this week, I’ve researched photographers in the area, I looked through all of the photos on my phone and even when I am supposed to be getting much needed rest from my baby, all I can think about is my baby!
Funny how a mommy brain works ?
Here are a few pictures I came across during my sleepless scroll.
