Adjusting

I'm tired.
I mean I am tired all the time.
And Aidan is a good sleeper!
The minute Aidan is fast asleep momma hits the ground running for her bed.
10:30pm is a late night for me these days.
These nice bags have permanently resided under my eyes.
So what shall I do, embrace them!
Because honestly what else can I do.
No concealer is getting rid of these bad boys.
Did I expect to get no sleep?
Abso-freakin -lutely!
I mean my body has only been preparing me for this since my third trimester.
That is when the sleepless nights began.
I spent more time in the bathroom than in my bed at night.
I will say this, it's an adjustment.
And when I am sleeping, it's not the sound sleep I used to enjoy.
Because every noise and movement baby boy makes, momma hears.
I then find myself staying up and watching him on the baby monitor.
Hello, go to sleep while you can!!
I'll say it again, it's an adjustment.
Changing diapers, pumping, feeding, and entertaining a newborn all day is exhausting.
Who knew?!?
Exhausting I tell you, but so rewarding at the same time.
Coffee becomes your best friend.
In my case, it became my new and best friend all at the same time.
But I am thankful to have this time off from work to spend with my little one.
I would give up every last hour of sleep to be able to stay home with him for good.
It's amazing how I can watch Aidan sleep for hours on end.
Hoping to catch every little smile.
Or every little pout.
Listen for every last squeak.
There is something so peaceful about watching a baby sleep.
I have not mastered the skill of napping when he naps yet.
But, I am adjusting!!

This is what I do when he naps instead of napping myself.








I try and capture every cute face and every moment of this little boys life.

Ah Erin, I couldn't agree more!!! Becoming a mom is a huge adjustment and life change - and absolutely nothing can quite prepare you for it! All i can say (being 6 months on) is that each day seems to get easier and you do adjust... Enjoy your sweet little man x
