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!
8 - 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!
