Lessons Learned

After walking 50 miles in circles around my room today (hey it's great for circulation!) trying to comfort a fussy baby, I have learned the following things:

1. Don't touch the sleeping baby! In fact, don't even look at him too hard, it will wake him up.
After looking across the room and seeing that Logan's hat had fallen off, I went over to inspect. I tried to wiggle it back on. I got a


Me: "oh shit..."
I wiggled that hat on and picked him up and walked some circles, shh'ing in different patterns. He fell asleep.

2. Babies hate diaper changes.
HATE THEM. They are cold. They are not swaddled... and so they scream. You feel like everyone who walks by the room thinks you are killing you baby, but then when you are sitting and hearing all the other babies cry - you realize those are diaper changes too.

3. Go to the damn bathroom every chance you get.
Yesterday, It took me hours to get to go pee. TMI maybe but between v
isitors, feeding, dr's and nurses, and then my room being moved from recovery to potspartum... I didn't get to pee. And a few times today I needed to but either was eating, feeding, walking, something... now if I am up and there is nothing in my hands.. I go pee.

4. Haha @ sleep...
There is very littl

5. This is the coolest thing I have ever experienced in my life.
And boy am I in LOVE.

Even if my ear drums are shot....
