Things are going well. Lily is 7 weeks old now. We are spending the days together and trying to get a regular routine down. Currently, she eats every 3 hours and "naps" for 2. 30 or so minutes of the hour left is spent eating, so that leaves us a little over 30 minutes to do anything outside the house. Needless to say, I don't get out much.
We spend our wake-time talking to each other, singing, reading, watching Baby Einstein videos or just looking at lights and walls. She has a particular affinity for a certain mirror we have above our couch. She will just stare at it and get bigger smiles than I can illicit. It may sound like a dull day, but I really love the times when she is awake. It's the times when she is napping that I find myself bored. I often struggle with feeling isolated and trapped. Just this past week, I was really struggling which has caused me to start this week fresh and start looking for activities to do while she is napping to keep my mind working and busy.
I'm afraid to share with you all what I've decided to do with my time because I'm afraid I will fail and one of you will ask me how it's going and I will have to share that I failed. Geez...talk about performance anxiety. Ok....should I share this...yes, ok....I am attempting to read through the Bible. I think this is my 708th time to declare that Iam going to do this, but I have run out of excuses for real. I have so much time and all I have to do is discipline myself to do it. I am afraid to ask for accountability, but I guess I should. So, feel free to ask me about it. Scary!
I'm rambling now, so I will just leave you some pictures of Lily. Amazing! Love those chubby cheeks.
