Daybook: July 27, 2009


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.

  1. Second kids are usually a lot less demanding and more laid-back that firsts. Maybe it’s just because sometimes you are busy with other things, like child #1, and they learn that they just have to wait a minute. Or maybe it’s because we’re more relaxed with them, because we’re more confident in what we’re doing the second time around. In any case, enjoy your chilled-out little blueberry, she’s adorable!


  2. You are doing EXACTLY what you need to be doing these days! Oh, and it is so good he is doing the cooking…and that he wanted a menu.
