    Re: Just found out tonight...

    Oh my.... we are so exhausted. I can barely find enough time to eat with all of the feeding, pooping, peeing, etc. He eats about every 2 hrs, then there is burping, getting him to fall asleep except finding out he has a dirty diaper, changing his diaper which wakes him up, calm him down, get him to fall asleep again, and then there is about 30-40 minutes before he wakes up to eat again. We spend our 30 minutes just looking at how precious he looks (especially while sleeping)...

    We had a rough first night home, hopefully we will survive

    Haha. We went to the Dr. today for his check up. The nurse asked if we were getting any sleep. I just stared ahead with a dazed look on my face. She said "are you ok?" I said "Yeah, I'm just thinking about the question. What is this sleep you speak of?"

    Welcome to parenthood.

    I think you will find that things improve after everyone settles into some kind of rhythm- the baby's includes sleeping, eating, pooping; yours, of course, includes catering to the eating and pooping.

    Notice your part does not necessarily include sleeping. Sorry.
    It is important to understand that things get better only after you have completely forgotten what it's like to be well rested. It's sort of like brain washing- the kid's job is to break you psychologically and get you to the point where you stop hoping it will end. Once that's done, you become a compliant worker/drone. So, the sooner you get with the program and accept your fate, the better you will feel.

    Resistance is futile, if you know what I mean.

    Congrats!

    My daughter is 2, and I still haven't gotten that 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep yet...

    Enough about you, what about the baby?

    hehe....no, Mr. Hammer does his fair share. It's just that since our daughter is 2, she thinks she knows all and has specific jobs for Mommy and other jobs for Daddy. For better or worse, one of Mommy's jobs at the moment is the night time comforting. Lest you think we let her rule the roost....as a parent, I'm sure you know that you have to pick and choose your battles...for now, we'll let her go on this one. Gotta love toddlerhood!

    I'm not sure I ever really excelled at that. For me against my daughter it's just one loss after another.
