It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!
It's been a few weeks now since I last did a "What are you reading" Monday. Even this post is much later than I would have like it. But alas, things certainly have changed in the household of this reader. My life now consists of bottles, dirty diapers, and baby snuggles. While I certainly wouldn't change it for the world, I do often wonder - when will I read again?
Anthony came home on January 25th and he's been a real joy. He's doing extremely well, and eating like a little piggy. We put him on soy formula to help with his tummy and he's gaining weight like a champ. He was up to 8 lbs 3 oz when I took him to the doctor a week ago. He had lost almost a pound and a half while he was in the NICU so its great to see him grow!! He's a pretty good sleeper too. He normally falls asleep between 10 and 11 and sleeps until 2 or 3. After a quick bottle, he's normally asleep again until 6 or 7. I certainly can't complain about that!! However, even with his decent sleeping I'm still exhausted. It's taken me every bit of the four weeks that he's been home to find a balance between home and baby. And it's a very fine line...I have a very strict routine that I stick to now with housework and bottle washing and bedtime. It helps with the stress knowing that everything is being taken care of, but it doesn't leave me with a lot of "me" time. That's what I'm going to work on next...even if its just a half hour each evening that I take to blog or read. Plus hubby loves spending time with the little one so I don't think he'll mind :)
Reading wise, I have so many great books that I'd love to read. I'm going to start light this week and say I'd love to start and possibly finish one book:
So that's what has been going on in my life. Many, many changes but I love my little man so I wouldn't go back! I can't believe he'll be six weeks old on Thursday! What kind of mom would I be if I didn't share a picture:
Isn't he just the cutest!!
