It's weird though, I feel really guilty even complaining. I feel so blessed to have this beautiful little boy and I continue to remind myself during those late night feedings. So what if the laundry is piling up a little more than normal, or I haven't been able to deep clean our bedroom and bathroom the way I'd like? I have this amazing, healthy baby who I should be focusing on right now. This time with him being snuggled up on my chest and looking into my eyes while he nurses is such a short time and I know I'll miss it once it's gone.
I was able to improvise a little yesterday morning and threw him into the Baby Bjorn while I prepared the Bean and Bacon soup in the slow cooker for dinner. He actually enjoyed facing forward and looking around! But once the afternoon rolled around, I finally rose the white flag in surrender and we spent the rest of the day in my bed, watching movies and nursing. It was actually a wonderful bonding opportunity. I have been keeping myself so busy lately so it was wonderful to just slow down and spend that time with him.
Needless to say, I'm depending on lots of coffee to get me through each day and hopefully this growth spurt will be brief. Just trying to enjoy every moment and take it all in.
His squeaks and smiles make every sleepless night worth it...
