Baby Nico woke up for his feeding at 4:10 am. So I do just that. He seems content but as I put him on my shoulder to burp the little guy he spits up. I turn him around.. I examine his lips — seem pretty clean I don’t know what all that noise was.. Alas I turn around and feel both of my pillows wet along with my bed sheets. So I do what any sane person would, I stay still and begin soothing my baby back to sleep while feeling the cold milk touching the side of my arm. He’s out cold, I place him in his bassinet and begin to “clean” (mostly smear spit up more, thank God for pillowcases) I get up get a towel to lay down on the bed sheet, new pillowcase, & pajama pants (those got dirty too) and throw the dirty stuff on the floor (might I add.. Hubby didn’t move an inch.. I’m a ninja) and back to sleep I go.
So that’s it! I’ll deal with that later. For now it’s snuggle time.
Share your spit up stories below.
Thanks for stopping by!
Motherhood is a blessing. So much love in such a little person but there’s things they don’t tell you. But before you read all of that, here’s a picture of my little man. Isn’t he just the cutest little thing?
As I was making my bed (at 5:30 pm, really? Why bother?) I was thinking .. I should really start a blog about things pertaining motherhood that I didn’t know and know now. I spend most of my days just holding a hungry, sleepy and/or cranky baby… Lots of time to read mommy blogs. Most of what I read is women getting s*it done. But how? I mean.. These women are amazing. They exercise, feed their children organic home made stuff, do arts & crafts, grocer y shop, run an etsy shop, write their blogs and me??? If I brush my teeth before 3 pm I’m winning.
I meant to start this blog post yesterday, but didn’t get to it!!
Props to the moms that get things done. Me??? You can find me failing daily with unbrushed hair & teeth anytime.
What about you? Share something about motherhood that completely surprised you.
I’ll mostly be using the mobile app… So forgive me for any mistakes— you can also blame it on sleep deprivation.
