I feel like Liam is leaving behind the newborn look, it's unbelievable. He is turning into a little man right before my very eyes! He is smiling more and more, and it absolutely kiiiiiiills me.
After the first two weeks I remember thinking, "this has been the longest two weeks of my life." Does that sound horrible or what? Don't get me wrong, I was head-over-heels in love with this baby and wouldn't trade my new life for anything. But getting used to it all- trying to figure out how everything works (how to soothe, breastfeed, swaddle, bathe, change a diaper, etc) on little to no sleep, not to mention your own body's recovery was quite the adjustment. Basically it was a combination that made me feel like I was constantly underwater.
Then the first month came, and that felt about right. Then I blinked and he is 2 months old this week! Time is going by so fast right now, and I have no idea where it is going. Too often when Alex gets home from work the apartment is messy, I haven't even thought about what to make for dinner, and I am torn between what need is most dire- eat, take a shower, or pee? It's days like this when I wonder, "what in the world have I been doing all day??"
And then I read this article yesterday, and it helped everything make a little more sense. If you're a mama, read it. Because turns out we aren't doing as horribly as we may think we are-
Actually I'm going to share a little bit of it on here. Or maybe a lot.
