I know it has only been eleven days since I became a mom, but I'm already learning so so much!
I have to brag on my little boy a little and tell you how angelic he is.
He sleeps all the time.
The doctor told me not to let him go more than four hours without eating, so I have to wake him up once in the middle of the night, but I bet he would keep sleeping if I let him.
Ian and I just feel SO blessed to have such an easy baby so far... Praise the Lord!!!
Also, breast feeding has been way easier and less gross than I thought it was going to be. So that's great!
The only thing is that he hates being naked, so he pretty much always screams whenever we change him.
That all being said, parenthood is just not as hard as I thought it was going to be (at least at this point).
The hardest part by far-- and I'm about to get really personal here-- has been managing time with extended family.
Even before Greyer (pronounced gray-er btw) was born, our parents began asking how often they would see him since they are both about an hour and a half away. They asked how often I would go down there and when they could come up here... and frankly, I was/am feeling a tad overwhelmed by it all.
I am so so so blessed with a loving family that wants to be involved in my life, but I feel like I'm just failing everyone by needing time to get to know my boy on my own.
Everyone wants more time with him and it's only been a week and a half!
We've had SO many visitors since he's been born and I've never felt so loved and cared for.
But I guess I'm just tired and want some time getting to know my new little family of three. Just us.
It's hard to say no to love and attention, but I feel like it needs to be ok for me to do that without feeling like the bad guy or like what I'm giving is never enough.
Like I said, this is all stuff we've already talked with our family about and since we have the first/only grandchild in the state we are all learning how to balance our time together.
And c'mon, if this is the hardest part of parenthood it's really not that bad : )
