What a Difference Some Sleep Makes

8 Oct

I promised you I’d post Clara’s birth story, but I’m having trouble finding the time to finish it.

Between feeding her, changing her, and just staring at her beautiful face and watching all those silly expressions she makes, I haven’t even touched my computer for about 3 days now.  I will finish it though.

I will say, a few hours sleep makes a major difference.  Even just a nap in between feeding that precious girl can make me feel about 10 times more human. After one completely sleepless night, I lost it every time I tried to do anything.  Literally.  But that afternoon, Joel’s mom took over baby duty and pretty much told me I had to go sleep.  I’m generally not a good napper, but I am learning to appreciate them more and more.

I am looking out the window at the beautiful weather we’re having – sunny, gorgeous almost-fall-feeling weather.  I want to go out in it, but after the day we had yesterday, I’m beat.

We got a call that someone wanted to look at our house, so we spent 45 minutes furiously cleaning and trying to make sure that it didn’t look like complete and total chaos in here, and then we dashed out of the house just in time for them to show up.  After all that activity (I’m aware of how silly that sounds. It’s not actually all that much activity, but it sure seems like a lot.), I don’t feel like much of anything today.  Except holding my little peanut and catching up on tv I’ve missed in the last 2 weeks.

So that’s what I’m going to do – hold my baby girl and watch tv.  It’s the simple things.
