Adding Insult to Injury



Ah the excitement of caring for a newborn: constant feedings, diaper changes, swaddling, soothing, more feedings, more diaper changes, getting peed on, swaying, rocking and more feedings and diaper changes...all of that in a 3 hour cycle.

Not sure what the Doctor was talking about when she said newborns were only awake for 3 hours a day. And of course sleep is highly overrated. One of the nice things about being a new parent means that Liz and I can fall asleep anywhere, at anytime inside of 20 seconds. Sit down to watch TV...lights out. Having an adult conversation...goodnight.

Now thanks to Benjamin Franklin, Liz and I were able to FULLY enjoy our first night home...not only was poor Chase up all night, at 2am...the clocks jumped ahead an hour!! Awesome...
