    I'm sure this is normal but...

    I realized today that the last 2 weeks of my life I seem to be stuck on repeat.

    Wake up when Dawson wakes up.
    Change him
    Feed him
    Hold him and attempt to entertain him until he falls asleep
    Repeat as needed

    It doesn't seem like i've done a damn other thing. THe house is in shambles. Groceries need to be done. Loads of laundry are still in the washer/dryer. Welcome to motherhood, eh?

    It does get better!

    I think that I was more of a "let DH take care of the baby" and I was the one that did everything around the house... pretty much right after I was discharged. I went to the Nex the afternoon they released me.

    it gets better once you both get a schedule and once you are fully rested from the whole labor thing. it takes a few weeks. :-) dont worry about it. your job is first to take care of your baby and you, then worry about the house.
    Sometimes the smallest things take up the biggest space in your heart.

    Ugh it still kinda feels like that for me... and no amount of people saying "it'll get better! promise!" helps make me feel better haha.

    Although we ARE doing better. Molly is on more of a schedule so I know what to expect and can therefor plan accordingly around her. We also 'get' each other better which helps a lot.

    All I know is... I don't ever want to go back to the first two weeks of her home! I'm glad I was at my mom's at that time... I can only imagine what my house would have looked like otherwise.... haha
