It is hard to believe that Rosemary is three weeks old! These past three weeks have been a haze of late night feedings (milk for Rose and cookies or PB&J's for me.) This week has been, far and away the most difficult probably because sleep deprivation has truly set in.
Sleep: Ha. Ha ha ha.
Growth: Rose regained her birth weight in under a week and is a good little eater. When she is really hungry she will root and snort like a piglet... it is hilarious. At her two week appointment she weighed in at 7 pounds 13 oz so she is probably around 8 pounds now. She has been going through a growth spurt this week which means she eats constantly and it is hard to leave the couch. I watch a lot of Gilmore Girls reruns on Netflix while she nurses.
Workouts: I took two full weeks off after having the baby to rest and recover. During that time we would take short walks just to get out of the house. More recently I have worked up to jogging 2-3 miles a few times a week and doing some light stretching. It is wonderful and makes me feel more like myself again.
Overall this time is super challenging for me and Jeff. We are both so happy but the stress of new parenthood is pretty overwhelming. Each day gets easier thankfully! Rosemary is the best thing ever and when I look down at her when she is eating at 3 am I am amazed at how perfect she is. Just look at those little legs...
