A Few Numbers

12 - The number of diapers I changed yesterday.  After our baby showers I naively told Dan that we wouldn't be buying diapers anytime soon.  Two weeks in and we have a max of 3 days left of newborns.  I plan to sign up for an Amazon Prime Mom membership today.

The Pack-N-Play (which my lovely co-workers gave me) is what I like to call "grand central station."  Need a diaper change?  A wipe?  A binke?  How about an alcohol swab?  Head to the Pack-N-Play.

1 - The number of times I unknowingly got poo on my hand.  And then wiped it on my face.  And then immediately took the hottest shower of my life.  

7 - The number of times Little Miss ate yesterday.  It seems like overnight she went from not really being hungry to having the appetite of a bear that just woke up in the Spring.  I used to have to coax her to eat for at least 5 minutes, and now she grunts and wiggles her way to food with little help from me.  

120 - The number of stamps I used yesterday.  Christmas cards - done.  Thank you cards - done (procrastinator, party of one).  Thank God.

15 - The number of pictures I took of Ina Mae in this exact position.

I have no shame.  With a face that beautifully cute, I would have taken 150 if she would have kept her eyes open.

30 - The number of times I checked to make sure Ina Mae was still breathing.  After I swaddle her, she likes to burrow in her swaddle.  No matter how many times I adjust the blanket, she always ends up like this:

5 - The number of meals I ate.  Nursing makes me ravenous.

1 - The number of meals I took a picture of.  Leftovers from brunch.

0- The number of Christmas presents I have left to buy!  Holla!  

- The number of hours of sleep I have been getting each night.  It has been wonderful.  Ina Mae eats around 9, falls asleep until around 2, I am up for an hour feeding her, and then we go back to sleep until 6:30ish the next morning.  

5 - The number of times I have walked by this pile in the kitchen and then found something else to do.

Today is cookie making day.  I thought that it would be easier to get everything out so I wouldn't have to dig through a cabinet or drawer with raw egg on my hands.  I just realized that I forgot butter.  How many cookies do you think you can make without butter?  Looks like Little Miss is going on her first trip to the store today!

    You're a better woman than I am... I'm not making Christmas cookies this year because "I'm pregnant and tired" and you're making them with a newborn at home! YOU'RE A ROCKSTAR
