Oh hi there!! I'm actually sitting at my computer! Nevermind that it took me until 9:30 on Saturday night to draft this and I'm aching to crawl into bed knowing that the next nursing time is in two hours. But Hi!!
I'm settling into life after newborn quite nicely. I'm allowing myself to sleep in, to laze around the house, and to let that baby sleep on me now and then. I have moments where I'm flat out tired and there was one day with some tears (mine), but mostly I'm pleased with how we've all adjusted so smoothly to Evie's arrival.
Listening To: Nothing. So sad! Actually, I listened to the first 10 minutes of Stiff by Mary Roach while working on some quilting the other day but then Evie woke up and that was the end of that. I have meant to listen while nursing in the middle of the night but I haven't gotten there yet.
Eating: Everything in sight. Especially if it's sweet. Like I really need to stop buying temptation foods! Stupid Double Stuff Golden Oreoes!
Watching: Breaking Bad. I've blown through three seasons in two weeks. It's kind of sad really...
Reading: Mockingjay! I've been working on this book for a year and actually started it over again from the beginning. Next up is Mudbound for book club.
Making: Slowly but surely I've been chipping away at Evie's quilt. The blocks are really simple and I hope to have the top finished in the next two weeks. I know that sounds crazy but I think it's doable! And I'm almost embarrassed to post the picture below because I haven't trimmed the few completed blocks (and one isn't even complete), but this is currently what's on my design board.
Planning: Honestly? Nothing. Oh--I have been thinking about an October Pin it and Do it but I still haven't decided if I'm crazy or not. Thoughts?
Feeling: Fairly good but by the end of the day a little tired. I have been trying to take at least one nap a day as nursing every 2-3 hours around the clock will take it's toll. And don't get me started on the juggling of dinner and bedtime duties. I think in a few weeks I'll add a pumping session to my day just so that Scott can feed the baby if needed in the evening!
Loving: These girls. Elle still isn't so sure about her baby sister but her adjustment has gone much better than I anticipated.
Wanting: I won't even mention anything about a full night's sleep. That would be silly...
Thinking: About blogging. And how to get back into the groove. I want to blog but it seems rarer and rarer that I have something post-worthy. If you have anything you'd love to hear me ramble about, please let me know!! Like seriously. Also, there is a Bloggiesta this coming weekend and I am tempted to join!
Looking Forward To: Fall! And some cooler weather! We are still in the 90s here during the day and I can't wait for the crisp fall temperatures.
Would love to hear what YOU are listening to, eating, watching, reading, making, planning, feeling, loving, wanting, thinking, and looking forward to.
