havin' a lil bubba sure is tough. hard to remind yourself that you'll have a settled baby all in good time. hard not to place too many expectations on you and your newborn. i think i've been expecting something different of Lottie Pearl. that is unfair on her and unrealistic for me. i think it is a big expectation that as a new mother you will love every minute of this new life. i had no idea how hard it would be physically, let alone emotionally. i mean - right now i am typing this with one hand, babe in other arm, bouncing on a fitball to help her get off to sleep as she has only had 2 x 40 minute naps today. oh and i have baby massage oil and poo all down my front.
it sure is cliched but when she smiles, or does something new or better than before i instantly forget all of that stuff.........
