Week Three Postpartum

Another week bites the dust!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already another week gone. I still feel like I just came home from the hospital. With the exception of course, being, I don’t feel nearly as in pain as I did three weeks ago. Hooray for healing! It’s definitely been a better week on that end of things.

This week, Matt started easing back into work. He started out going in the afternoons and by the end of the week he had an almost full day back to work. That made things interesting for me not having him here. I was literally scared to have him go off. After all, we had really been working as a team with Nic these past few weeks. Sometimes Matt had to actually feed me food in order for me to eat that day. I was fearful that I wouldn’t be able to eat all day. But it turned out to not be so bad!

Although there has been a couple times every afternoon where Nic just has a meltdown, it hasn’t been nearly as scary as I thought it was going to be. I’ve had some really sweet times with him as he nurses and falls asleep on me. And, honestly, when he’s crying for 20 minutes straight I have just had to put the headphones in and was able to watch some of my favorite YouTube videos. So there’s that!

So about those little Nicky-meltdowns. Boy, can he cry loud for a newborn! Everyday this week he has been wailing right before his naps. He fights them so much. But in his defense, I think it’s part my fault because I have not yet been able to figure out his sleep cues. I was told by the pediatrician that when they yawn, they are already overtired. It’s hard to tell! But I feel like once I can figure out when I should actually be putting him down, the meltdowns will be less frequent. Let’s hope so anyway!

Good things this week: We’re all healthy, my stitches ar pretty close to being completely healed. No peeing myself this week!

Milestones and big things this week:

-Picked out a stroller and got it

-Nic started to smile here and there!

-Nic is growing out of his newborn onesies and already fits some 3-6 month stuff

Messy Hair Don't Care

It’s kind of been my state of mind in general lately. Not that I’ve completely let go of appearances, but I have definitely fallen into the mom trap of putting yourself very last. Days go by where I don’t brush my hair at all. There have just been so many other more important things on... Continue reading


“It gets easier.” That’s what we were told in the beginning, after bringing home Nicholas. That is what we keep hearing as sleep continues to be rough. But looking back on the past two month’s it really HAS gotten better with each week. Everyday we catch up a little more on sleep, some days less... Continue reading


Six weeks! I feel like six weeks is a milestone marker because we are now halfway to three months! We keep saying how we can’t wait for his three month birthday because of many different things we’re looking forward to; head control (for playing airplane), longer sleep periods, and at three months we can begin to...
