Ah.... so THIS is what exhaustion feels like!!

I'd almost forgotten! LOL

So... my baby girl is a GREAT sleeper, but she wants to sleep ON TOP OF YOU!! The moment she's put down, she wakes up and starts fussing. So the options are (1) let her sleep on my stomach/chest or (2) plan on being up most of the night. Of course, letting her sleep on me isn't a solution in and of itself because I'm paranoid that I'll accidentally hold her too tight or smush her face into my chest or the covers - so I end up being awake anyway.

In general, B falls asleep pretty early, leaving me to deal with Baby Girl; he gets up early, too and usually takes over with her about 5am - but that doesn't leave ME much time to sleep. He seems to nearly always get his requisite 6 hrs, but I'm lucky if I can get 2 or 3 that are continuous. We're going to have to have a discussion about this soon because I'm too tired to do anything except care for Baby Girl, and that's just not fair. Especially as he still expects me to clean the house, plan & cook meals and do the majority of the childcare.

Regardless of how tired I am, I sure am loving having her here!! She really IS a good baby - she just wants to be held all the time - I've got to find the solution to that...

It's so amazing that she's here and as much as the exhaustion is overwhelming I know you're thrilled to death to be holding her!
