Outside my window: The sun is shining, the clouds are fluffy and it’s warm enough for BB to lounge around in nothing but a onesie and still be warm and sleepy all day.
I am hearing: Traffic from outside the balcony door – and little else. I’m not sure if MM is sleeping but he’s being quiet and that’s enough for me.
I am thinking: That little BB is the most laid back girl in the world – pretty much nothing phases her. She can sleep through MM temper tantrums, vaccinations, diaper changes – whatever. MM was nothing like that and still isn’t. I think it’s a nice combination.
I am hoping: for very little right now – things are going well and I’m tired but content – heck, it’s been less than a week and I’m attempting to blog again. At some point I might even write up a real post about the birth, our first week etc. Probably not today though. Typing one-handed takes forever!
I am reading: nothing really. I started Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris but haven’t felt like reading since BB was born. We’ll see how long that lasts!
I am creating: Seriously? When would I find the time??
I am wearing: my favorite dress – it’s superly easy to nurse in. 🙂
In the kitchen: I won’t be the one cooking but Dan requested a menu plan anyway – subject to change of course… I decided pasta was the easiest thing to deal with…
- Monday: leftover spaghetti and meat sauce
- Tuesday: Fettucini Alfredo with broccoli and grilled chicken
- Wednesday: Hamburgers, hot dogs and macaroni and cheese
- Thursday: we might order chinese food – it will be grandma’s last night here and we thought it might be nice
- Friday: spaghetti and meatballs
Around the house: I’m trying not to feel lazy as I basically have abandoned all housework but Dan and grandma are doing a great job keeping on top of it while I focus on BB and recovery. I’m still sore and tired but getting better daily – the key is not over doing it when I am feeling good.
Plans for the week: To avoid making plans? I’ll probably nurse the baby, change diapers, eat and hang out with grandma and MM.
A few of my favorite things: Nursing bras, my boppy, the co-sleeper and awesome friends and family? Oh – and my new baby – she’s pretty great, too.
