Today was H to the ARD

Edie is just now falling asleep for her first nap of the day and it's 5pm. I thought newborns were supposed to sleep at least 16 hours per day? She has been hyper alert all day, super fussy and needed to be in my arms at all times. I didn't get lunch until 2:30 and I'd only had a piece of toast for breakfast. Thankfully, "girls night" is being resurrected tonight and I'm hosting. This should mean plenty of Aunts to bop Edie so that I can ... I don't know... maybe go to the bathroom? I don't think I've peed yet today.

and PS: how is it that I'm barely able to get a bite in all day, spend all day lifting a 9 and half pound lump of baby over and over, and yet this baby weight is still clinging to my ass like a life raft in rough seas?

Right there with you Jill! Emmi did the exact same thing yesterday - refusal to sleep, fussy, could not put her down, scarfing down a not so hot meal, etc...hope your evening was good and you got to have a few hours free to eat and pee! (And yes, what's the deal with the weight not going off - I lost 25 pounds in the first 3 weeks, and in the last 3 I've been losing and gaining the same 2 pounds. Ugh.)

Umm, hate to tell you, but that baby weight can hang around for quite some time. I'm now working on my toddler weight, ahem. Hope you had a great night with the girls and wish I could have been one of them, bopping Miss EDB like crazy. Just caught up on your posts since like a month ago...oops! Thanks for sharing it all, good & bad, poop & joy. xoxo
