Yup. I’ll admit it. It’s nearly impossible to be a new mom, maintain a blog, work full-time, exercise, regulate a home… and get a decent amount of sleep. I say “nearly” because I could do all of that, but I would have to sacrifice on the sleep. I want my decent amount of sleep!
Baby boy actually sleeps through the night really well, but there are the random days where he’ll wake up once or twice. We just never know when those nights will be, so we’re kind of on edge every night anyways.
Anyhow, my thirty before 30 list is still moving along, but I’ve already come to terms with myself that I just won’t complete everything on the list. If I complete most of them, I’d be happy. When I put together the list, I didn’t really take into account everything else I had upcoming – being in 2 weddings being a good part of that. Though anything I did was 100% worth it for my friends, I really did lose a lot of sleep… and therefore realizing that I don’t really have as much time as I thought I did to complete the list. I didn’t want to start beating myself up for not completing it, so I just came to terms with… I want my decent amount of sleep. Also, for the few moments that I do have “downtime,” I’d like to opt for snuggling with my baby since I don’t get to see him as often as I’d like to. Baby snuggles or complete something on my list of random things to complete before I turn 30? No contest.
So, yeah, I don’t have enough time for snuggles because, well, now I work. Going back to work has been a challenge. Some days are so emotionally draining. I just sit around and miss my little baby so much. I know I’m built to work, but when I have a moment to myself, I just wish I could hold him for my 15 minute break instead of checking social media. I just find myself looking at his pictures on there anyways. Some days are better than others.
Chillin in his snugapuppy and watching me from afar. I just wanna squeeze him! The cuteness is unbearable.
Also, hubby got me a new lens for my camera as an early birthday present. Woo! Another excuse to take more pictures of my baby!
