Mommy Dairies

I'm back...For now ;-) . Oh, I haven't spelled "Diaries" wrongly. Its just one of my bad bad puns. I feel like a walking-talking milk booth, and have a sneaking suspicion that I smell like the Aavin milk depot near my house. Guess that is one of the "perks" of motherhood ;-)

The new blogger interface is terrible and irritating. How do I get back the old interface? Anyway , how have you guys been ? Yeah ,I know I haven't been visiting blogs or replying to comments on my last post.I am sometimes hopeless like that. Pls excuse. My lil' lady(and I) finally slept continuously for a colossal 4 1/2 hours yesterday without interruption...and I am thrilled! Sleepless nights are gradually going to be a thing of the past (hopefully!). She also tried to roll over yesterday .. so I am double thrilled! I wake up everyday in anticipation of some little milestone my beanie will conquer that day. Gosh! I am more dependent on her than she is of me ;-) 

What have I been upto-other than  happily "liking" people's photos on FB. Nothing much. Just learning to be a mommy.Which is so darn difficult! Beanie will be 8 weeks old in a few days and is keeping  us all on our toes. I won't say that the last fifty-two days have been easy. There have been nights when I've barely slept for a few hours (and couple of 30 hour stretches when I couldn't sleep for a single minute).This was especially so in the initial few weeks when Beanie didn't know how to latch on and kept losing weight.The jaundice didn't help either. I left the hospital a nervous wreck and had doubts about whether I would be able to feed my lil lady and be a good mother. I am going to blame it all on the baby blues !Things became better in a while...  

 A few weeks  back the chap told me that I appeared a lot more relaxed and at peace now  than I've ever been. Strangely it is true.I feel a lot calmer. I don't think I have that constant nagging gnawing thought in my mind  that I have places to be, things to do before time runs out. Maybe motherhood is just natures way of saying, "There are more important people in  your life than YOURSELF". Anyway,the Beanie smiles at people wearing glasses a lot. And everyone in the household has started wearing glasses just to catch the little munchkin smile. Have a look at what her playmate Yoohoo aka Chintu has resorted to doing just to get into her good books...

Wonder how many  glasses I need to buy to amuse the lil one :-0

Have a super week guys..
