2 Weeks?!

I can't believe our little bird is already 2 weeks old. I've cried at least 10 times over it already. I knew time would fly, but nothing can prepare you for how blended your days and nights become. The clock just keeps ticking, mocking me. I can't stop it, so I can't stop tearing up.

These last two days have been rough. We had it really good up until Sunday, then Ro decided she wanted to be on my boob the entire day. No exaggeration. If I took her off, she'd instantly scream bloody murder, even if she'd just fallen asleep or gone into a milk coma- b.l.o.o.d.y.m.u.r.d.e.r. Luckily she's been much better today but she had her two week check-up with the pediatrician and had to get her first shot. Oh man don't even get me started on that one. It took everything in me not to cry as hard as she did. Luckily she got over it quickly, but I've felt stressed out ever since. Motherhood is intense yo! But the ultimate, fulfilling, all consuming love kind of intense so really, I'm not complaining, just sharing.

It's so funny how she's only been in our lives for 14 days but we already can't imagine how life was without her here. 
True love fo sho!


  1. Absolutely precious! I cry when my dog has to get shots so I can't even imagine what kind of basket case I'm going to be when my daughter has to gets shots!!

  2. It is crazy how much changes in 2 weeks. Time just moves so fast. She is beautiful! Congratulations on your beautiful little angel!

  3. she is precious. love that you call her Ro.

  4. so cute! I love when they're that tiny and just curl up....they really go grow so fast!

    We go to the ped in 2 weeks for a big round of shots and I am a little nervous! I know I wil cry and while hubby will be at the appointment with me, he has to go to work and I imagine that Aydan will not be a happy boy the rest of the day

  5. Katie: yea LOTS of things make me cry now! but not all bad tears.. ;o)

    Posidanielle: yep times going by TOO fast for my taste! thank you!

    happy owl erin: thank you! <333

    Dana: awe i hope that day goes well for you!!! derek wasn't with me today but my mom was.. and luckily Ro got over the shot very quickly so fingers crossed aydan reacts the same way! ;o)

  6. 2 weeks already?! Wowzah!

    Dude, I also cry when my dog has to go to the vet or when they clip his nails & accidentally cut the quick. I just bawl. "Stop torturing him!" I think. Just imagine me as a new mama.

  7. Nynga: i know i can't believe it;s been 2 weeks i'm so saaaaaaaaaaaad!!!! and yes, when you have babies it's gonna be hard on you too watching them get shots!! :o(

  8. Aw. That will probably be me, too- FREAKING OUT about how quickly time passes. And seriously, how can someone NOT feel bad during vaccination appointments? I mean... one minute... calm, happy baby... next minute... JAB + screaming. :(

  9. Awww. There will be days when all she wants to do is nurse. And thats ok! She has a LOT of growing to do!! I miss those days snuggled up on the couch with my tiny baby, soak it up before it is over, because, yes, as you noted, it goes by SO FAST!
