An Assortment of Delicious Babyness 33

An Assortment of Delicious Babyness

I haven’t had a lot of free time to blog (go figure) the last few days as I’m trying to either (a) Keep everyone in my family alive, a task that is much harder than I anticipated, or (b) Catch up on sleep by forcing the kids to nap with me. AndyZ is a much better sleeper than his sister was, but I’m feeling more tired because I can’t sleep as much during the day as I did with her. The nights were impossible with her, but since it was just her during the day, I could stay caught up...

The Middle Child. 26

The Middle Child.

So, my daughter is adjusting well. Several have asked if there’s any jealousy issues, and I say there’s no way because she just adores him too much. And she’s not regressing or anything (yet?) wanting to be more like a baby. However, she is demanding a lot more attention by crying over Every. Little. Tragedy. That. Invades. Her. Life. Like running out of milk. Or a Dora episode ending. But other than that? She’s actually doing waaaay better than I expected. She seems okay with the fact that I can’t carry her around like I used to do, although it...

A Little Clarification… 16

A Little Clarification…

Sometimes I write blog entries and casually mention things that I forget to re-visit later with in more detail. For example: The last entry referencing my daughter’s near-death incident. NikkiZ and I were on the couch this morning, and I was nursing AndyZ. I had just put down our plates of biscuits on the coffee table and we were going to eat breakfast while watching Bee Movie. NikkiZ reached forward for a biscuit and lost her balance falling FULL FORCE onto the coffee table. Cracking her forehead on the edge of the table with a terrible crack and then fell...

One Week. 31

One Week.

It’s been 7 days since I was sliced and diced and AndyZ introduced himself to our family. I will celebrate this with my favorite posting style: The Bulleted List. How I’m Doing One Week Later Nursing is still painful, although the bleeding has stopped. I’m not crying when the latching begins, and as the feeding moment progresses I actually start to forget he’s even eating. Yay! I still have that 5-month pregnant belly going on which I hate because it’s round like a pregnant belly, making me still look pregnant. I’d rather just look fat at this point. Fat is...

Once again with the excess drama… 23

Once again with the excess drama…

I’m afraid my last post may have given the wrong impression of my recovery. It is actually going surprisingly well. Much quicker than with NikkiZ. Since I came home, I’ve kept up with most of my normal activity (laundry, cooking, etc.) just fine, I’m just doing it a little gingerly – I guess is the best way to put it. And I’m still only taking one pain pill a day. And I probably don’t even need that one, it’s just kinda my reward and a way to help me get comfortable to sleep at night. MrZ will even attest to...
