Today is day 13. I'm sleepy. I could be sleeping, since the babe is, but I'd rather blog. I have a full day to sleep, don't I? Oh, on sleep: The first few nights blurred together with the first few days. I cannot remember how well he slept at night, but I do remember him sleeping a lot during the day. I can try to recall his nights during that first week, and when I do, I see visions of me hearing his squeaky "pay attention to me" noises, picking him up, and feeding him. I tried remembering which side he fed on last, to keep the "girls" even, and he did a pretty good job latching. He would fall back asleep after a few minutes or a few 10 minutes, and I would fall back asleep as well. Only for a short while, though, from 1 hr to 1.5 hours. Edu and I were so happy to have him in our lives that we didn't care, we just laughed the screaming episodes away. Carefree. Not yet sleep deprived. It would catch up with us soon. This are our first few days with the little monkey. Let's try and re-cap, shall we?
The LORD is my Strength and my Song,
and He has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise Him,
my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
