...are waiting till another day. Several people have said in their comments to make sure and sleep when Susannah sleeps and to take care of myself :)
No worries, though, I'm sleeping between most feedings. Yes, it does feel like the only thing I do is feed Susannah and go to the bathroom, but that's about all I do (besides eating and drinking), and right now that's all I care about! (and sleep - I do care about that!)
Daniel took off from last Thursday (when she was born) through this week. He has been really helpful with the little bit of housework that does have to be done, and he's fixed almost all the meals and makes sure I eat and drink enough, etc. He's wonderful, plain and simple. He goes back to work Monday and I'm not ready for that yet, but we have the weekend yet so hopefully some things will get better.
For starters this evening we're making some adjustments to the feeding routine that are appropriate now that she's 1 week old, and hopefully both of us (Susannah and me) will get a little more sleep and feel a little more awake when we are awake. The taught thing up till now has been keeping her awake to eat. She doesn't wake up to eat so we have to wake her up and then keep her awake as she would rather sleep than eat... and that results in a baby that is too hungry to be patient and eat... and that is not a good thing, for my emotions or hers!! Many people have said "she'll eat when she's ready" but she doesn't realize when "she's ready."
And on that note... it is time for another feeding so I must get going. Oh, what I really got on here to say was that I have NO desire to clean at all, so don't worry that I'm running on power surges around here! LOL!!
