Well no one said this was going to be easy and no I could not think of anything that related to blogging and rhymed with Kardashians. My creative cap only has a few minutes to think and make decisions lately. Mainly due to sleep deprivation but also due to the fact that mommy still has baby brain going on – I hope writing eases me back into the real conversing world, I miss big words.
I always hated the posts that bloggers write about how they cannot keep up with their blogs, but here I am. Yes Baby N is napping (amazing).
Life has been a handful lately mainly due to Baby N. Mommy M has not had any sleep because baby is hungry all the time. It feels like Baby N is a newborn again. With my almost 6 months experience with a newborn baby I have come to two conclusions of what may be causing this restlessness and hunger.
1. Teething. Baby N has two teeth already, he was a early bloomer with those (both bottom ones at 3.5 months!) and now it is time for the next set to come in. Another indication of this teething is of course the drool – drool is back! One last indication; Baby N loves to stick his fist in his mouth and make major grunting sounds.
2. Growth Spurt. They say (Daddy C has a problem with this phrase – I use it a lot) They say growth spurts occur at 3 and 6 weeks, then at 3 and 6 months. Well we are at 6 months next week so you never know.
So here I am….Sleep deprivation is not fun. What happens to mommy when she is sleep deprived? Well, she forgets to take a shower during the day, she forgets appointments, she actually tends to forget what day it is. It is pretty funny as I look back to a couple major oopsies I have done by getting days mixed up. Funny thing on the news just now they are talking about how sleep deprivation takes years off of your life…GREAT!
Anyway, last night may have been the last of it. Baby only woke up once to feed at 3 am and then slept until 630. I actually woke up on my own without a baby crying or yelling at me (Baby N yells for me to come get him, he doesn’t cry).
Tomorrow I can post my watermelon baby project that I created for a baby shower I went to last week. I am excited. It was not my idea – I thank Pinterest for it but man am I ever proud!
