Hi Lovelies, the little bundle of joy is taking up every ounce of time and energy. Honestly, motherhood is overwhelming- especially this whole exclusively breast feeding thing.
But our little girl- she's perfect and awesome.
Between being overwhelmed and enjoying her amazingness, I am trying to wrap my head around this blog and how it fits the big picture. Honestly, I think about posting, but other than my Mom journey so far- I don't have much to say. I hope to write her birth story some day, but I am still wrapping my head around it. To get to the punch line- after 13 hours of labor- I ended up with an emergency c-section, which really shaped my last few weeks.
So, until I get my Mom legs under me, things will continue to be quiet over here for a quite a bit longer.
That said, today is my first official day with Mr. Spice back at work full time. That means it's just me and the little lady for the next five months!!! Again, being honest, the whole idea of being a SAHM for the next five months is overwhelming. I really want to get into some sort of routine.
In an effort to enjoy my time, I want to create a list of rules for the day. First rule, get out of the house every day. Yes, every day. More so because I have to walk Huck in the morning. Although, I would like to get out for things other than walking the dog. On Wednesday, I hope to venture out to my first Mom's group for newborns!!
Other rules that I am not sure about- no TV past 10 am (gotta watch the Today show) and before 4pm. I write this as the TV is playing in the back ground.
So here's my question for you- what 'rules' would you create for yourself if you were home by yourself for an extended period of time?? If you have been a SAHM - did you set rules for yourself??
And because I am obsessed, here's another pic of the little lady at over 7.5 lbs at Week 3:
