Matrix of Sleep

 

It's been many years since I was chronically sleep-deprived.  I definitely forgot what it feels like.  Even now that Georgia is sleeping a little longer, I am still getting far less than I was before.   Before I got pregnant I was sleeping 8-9 hours/ night....

Long Line

 

I’m standing in line at the San Diego airport.  A crazy long line… the kind of security line that you see and hope can’t be real.  I walked around and checked the back and the front of the line.  I surveyed the scowling faces of everyone in line....

Food Prep

 

I did my first postpartum CrossFit workout this past weekend.  It was fun and hard and humbling.  You know that feeling when your heartbeat moves into your throat and then into your temple ... super close to puke fest?  

I was there.

Magic Cells

 

I have 2 pieces of "debbie downer" news.  I honestly didn't want to talk about them and sharing about poop and fires was a lot easier.

   First, I found out a few days ago Josh won't be home the first week of September like we hoped.  It will likely be the...

BBQ and Poo

 

Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels?  Like you put a ton of effort into something  and then the universe is like... nope, not today.

That is literally me every day these days.  I try not to feel frustrated or "mad"but sometimes I just wonder,...

Dirty paws white sheets

 

I am sitting on my bed nursing Georgia.. my all white bed.  Yeah, can you believe that? I have an all white quilt and all white sheets.  2 boys, 1 baby girl, 2 dogs and I went with all white.  I think its a good example of one of my dominant...

Sugar Goose

 

Georgia has had a series of rough sleeping nights.  Last night she did pretty well and slept from 1230 to 5.  The sleep deprivation is starting to impact my brain function though.  I can't remember certain words.   I forget things I've said to...

Award for breakfast

 

Last night was the first night in a while I got dishes done and coffee set up before I went to bed.  This morning I woke up to the kitchen not being a mess and coffee only one push away.   YES!  On top of that, I ordered groceries last night, and...

Don't Worry

 

Last night Henry wanted to help with Georgia's bath.  I told him in addition to helping me, he could be the bath DJ...he loves music.

So he comes in a few minutes later with the phone and starts playing a version of the "Don't worry be happy" song.  What a nice choice...

Sugar lies

 

I know I am probably jinxing it, but Georgia has started sleeping in much larger chunks.  The past few nights she slept from 1130pm until about 430am.  I set my alarm for 3 just to check on her...To be honest if you gave me the option to check on her every 20 min, I...

Kick my own butt

 

I dropped Josh off yesterday at 5am.  We won't see him again until the first week of September.  It was fun for him to see how much Georgia changed... it will be fun in September too.

She had her first real smile last week so his visit home was perfect...

Future Arm Bars

 

I set my alarm to get up early to write.   By early I mean during Georgia's morning sleep interval.  But she tricked me and was awake when I woke up.  Right now her night feeding routing is approximately 8pm, 11pm, 3am, 6am, 930am....then who knows after...
