Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by. As of today, Charlee is 6 weeks old!! Since my sweet girl joined our family a lot has changed. My days revolve around Charlee and as hard and challenging as being a Mom is, I absolutely LOVE it! I know everyone says this, but I honestly can’t imagine my life without Charlee and feel so lucky to be her Momma. It’s really nuts how much babies change by the day. Charlee is already out of her newborn clothing and into 3-month! She is a tall little lady! I also swear she looks like a different baby on the daily. I just ordered our newborn announcements and I swear she looks totally different now than she did then.
I think we have finally turned a corner in regards to Charlee’s sleep. She wakes up every 3-4 hours and is down from 10 P.M-10 A.M. waking up twice in between. Last night she actually slept for a five hour stretch! I couldn’t believe it! Sleep is so necessary and it’s really insane how well I am doing on so little sleep. It’s weird, but you just sort of function. I have to say I was worried about lack of sleep because I am such a sleeper, but it’s going well. Matt has been such a support and takes Charlee from 9-11:30 every night so I can make sure to get that sleep. He is amazing!
These pictures are from the other day when I took Charlee out for our daily walk. It really helps with my sanity. Getting that bit of exercise and fresh air is so necessary. I LOVE living in NYC because it is so easy to have a newborn here. I live across the street from the grocery store and the pharmacy making last minute diaper runs a breeze!
The three of us just got back from the Jersey Shore for our first family vacation. It was so much fun and actually a lot easier than I thought it would be traveling with a newborn. I’m thinking of writing a post about that, would you guys be interested?
Anyways, I know this is a really random post haha but I wanted to give you all a quick update. I know I haven’t been posting as often, so please bare with me! I am trying to give myself some time off with my sweet girl!
