mood: sleepysleepy

What's that? Sure, you read about it in books and see it in movies, but you never imagine that you'll have any sleep in your REAL life..

Today I woke up at 7 am (and 4 am and 2 am). After about half an hour of feeding and burping and diaper changing, she complained of wind for the next hour. She was definitely not interested in sleeping, and would start crying as soon as she realized I wasn't holding her. It's now 9 AM, and she is finally asleep, with the assistance of some lullabies (rock-a-bye baby and Fiddle and the Drum).

So now I can start work for today! No baby pictures today (not for lack of cuteness, more due to lack of willingness to expend effort on my part).

My parents went back to Australia last night, so it's just me and Lesley now.. let's see how we cope!

I think I'm actually enjoying it :) Having had both my family and lesley's family around helped of course.. otherwise I'd be worrying about so many things. I'm sad to let her go and be taken care of when lesley goes back to work, but there's no way I can take care of her AND work at the same time :'(

Nice to keep in touch this way - but WHERE ARE THE BABY PICTURES?

I'm suffereing severe withdrawal symptoms, and keeps seeing little face in front of my eyes when I stop and think about Gisele.

Current Scientific American says caring for children measurably improves some skills, which stays with you after raising children.
