sleep / day four

if there's one thing i can be absolutely certain on right now, it's that mothers get magical powers the minute they give birth.

one of these powers is the ability to live life on the smallest number of hours of sleep. 

it's completely true what they say: you'll never sleep the same again. 

life with a newborn is hard but the hardest part is easily the lack of sleep. 
and here's a tip: do not be fooled by these little tricksters in the first few days. all they do is sleep. going through birth is a serious time for them too. but that wears off. so don't think you have the greatest newborn because of how much they sleep the first week you bring them home. 

we thought that. 

week two was toooootally different. 
baby girl eats about every two hours, which means little sleep in between feedings. 

i can't stress the sleep when they sleep enough. there will be plenty of time in the future to clean the house and do the laundry. for now, get someone else to do it.

you can never start a bed time routine early enough. sure its a bit harder when babies sleep so much, but it's important to have some sort of routine.

and again, this benefits mom and dad in the long run.

newborns are hard. and i know what you're thinking, "i just love my sleep."
which i do too.

but i love her more.
