I have to say...I am so glad my "single but married" parenting has an expiration date on it. I have been so tired! My parents are now starting to help me more, because I just can't seem to get Evelyn to calm down sometimes. She's got such bad gas and it hurts her tummy, and Gripe Water and bouncing can only do so much!
I've done really well other then that though, I just really need to stop putting pressure on myself to do everything at once. I need to remember....Everything will be ok!!
Today I took the day off of doing anything. Its been nice. I had to wake up and shower after Evelyns 6am feeding, basically because I stunk and havent had time to shower..yeah it happens. At least Paul isnt here so no one to look good for anyways! But after my shower I ate breakfast by myself, and when I realized Evelyn was planning on sleeping alot more...I decided to go back to sleep. We had a good 2 hour nap which believe me was very much needed!!
Its not an easy task for sure. But I am sure glad I have her. I just wish I could make her feel better. I am 100% breastfeeding her and I have changed my diet and started trying to do different things to help, but so far nothing but Gripe Water and hours of bouncing is helping.
Yesterday I went shopping with my mom. I needed to get a few things before the move back to Kansas...which is in pretty much 2 weeks. I got Evelyn her Halloween costume! My mom bought her a cute outfit and a cute pair of PJ's. Halloween is my favorite holiday! I knew this one I had to go all out! I even got Evelyn a sling, which will very much come in handy when her daddy gets home!!
But I also bought things for my Cupcake Theme Kitchen, I want to do! I have a few ideas as far as to not go over board....but take a look at the cuteness which is cookie jar!
Here's just a few pictures to update you all on Evelyn and I.
One Month Old post! Its so hard to get a good picture of it because I only have my cell phone. So this is her little beautiful face this morning!!
