Adjusting to my new role...

April 1st, 2012 at 04:14 pm

My baby is girl is 16 days old now.

Before she was born people told me how much time she would take up and I honestly thought they were exaggerating, but they weren't. It's the little things like leaving the house - it takes us ages to get ready before we can even go anywhere. Then we leave, thinking we're organised, only to have to come back to get something for her. Once we're out things don't move any quicker either, I've lost count of the amount of people that stop to have a look at her and ask about her.

But I'm not complaining.

Hubby went back to work today, his two weeks paternity leave is officially over. I wish he could have stayed home with me forever.

I haven't been financially focused at all these past few weeks. We used the credit card yesterday to buy a few things for baby that we needed - hubby reasoned that we need them before payday, and we'll pay it back. One of the things we bought was a baby carrier, which I love using. Also we bought a canopy for the pram now that the nicer weather is coming in.

Baby S is sleeping while I write this, otherwise I doubt I would have managed to update. I know my mum is here but I'm trying not to ask for help unless I absolutely need it.
