Okay, who forgot to tell me that your nipples get so freaking sore in the beginnings of breastfeeding? Seems like little Sonya is a little barracuda therefore each initial latch on is quite painful and causing strained facial expressions on my part. Oh well, the pain is worth it. I do think they are slowly beginning to get better.
Today is the first day on my own. Hubbs had to go to a couple of meetings so I am alone with the little peanut. So far, I have had a cup of coffee, breakfast and even squeezed in a magazine read, but still no shower. The shower can wait. I have changed about 15 ass-plosion diapers, this girl really knows how to drop bass!
Yesterday we ventured out to Target together. I just was not confident enough to go by myself with the little one. I keep on worrying that she will wake up mid-shopping demanding the boob. So the Hubbs came along to steer the cart and watch over little Sunshine. Hopefully within the next few days I will be okay with starting to run errands on my own.
Lucy and Patty don't know what to think about this new addition to the home. Lucy had sneaked in a couple sniffs and licks but for the most part, she is staying away. Patty is pretty butt hurt that someone else has taken her place as a snuggle partner. She will not even jump on the couch if we are on it. I hope she comes around soon as I do like snuggling with the kitty.
Another interesting thing about postpartum is the amount you sweat. I seriously break out in a sweat throughout the night and most of the time when I am breastfeeding. I think I have sweat my pregnancy weight away. Just shows how much fluid you retain.
I am working on Sonya's birth story but with my pace around here, it will not be up for a couple of days. In the meantime, I am going to go back to snuggling with my girl.
