Today has been the first day in a week that we have not had company. Needless to say, I got up this morning with a full agenda. I was gonna get some "stuff" done today. Before I go any further, let me mention that I have not checked one thing off of my list. Instead, I have been attending to a furious baby all day. I am sure that anyone who gets within a foot of our door will think that my child is being mistreated, but I assure you, she is not. It has just been one of those days for her and thankfully the Lord has given me an enormous amount of patience today.
Since Lyla has been born, she has had people holding her ALL the time. Who wouldn't want to hold this little bundle of joy?!
However, once everyone has gone, there are points in the day where I HAVE to put her down. Maybe she's just a social butterfly like her mama??! Whatever the case, I feel terrible. I know that you are "supposed" to let them cry it out, but that just tugs on my heartstrings. Any new mommy can relate. But once she is fed, burped, changed, and burped some more, what can you do?? I'm taking suggestions by the way:)
On a positive note, I do feel like we are establishing more of a routine. YAY!!! She usually wakes up around 8 or 9 and we have started having some Jesus time. I am not sure when you are supposed to start reading to your children, but we have started reading the Bible to her. She loves it! (I am also holding her then so who knows...ha!) But she looks around and gets really quiet. I love that precious time with her. I want her to know Jesus and how much he loves her! Usually after that, she will fall asleep, but the second I put her down, the waterworks begin...
By the time Jeff comes home for lunch it is time to feed again and usually after that, she will lay down for a nap...but only if it is in OUR bed and I am snuggling right next to her. Of course, being that snuggly, I usually nap right along with her. :) I don't mind:)
It's almost been a month (can you believe it?!) And I truly fall more in love with her everyday (even when she's crying!)
