Dorothy had an alarming amount of awake time today.
She spent some of it flailing in her gym, her jerky limbs accidentally encountering her hangy toys.
She pooped 8 times and wet 10 diapers.
Ben and I added up all the time she has spent not being held, including car rides home from the hospital and to and from the doctor and 2 blissful showers she has spent in the rock and play: maybe 90 minutes of her life. Otherwise, she's in our arms, on our chests, on her big brothers' laps, or in the Ergo. It's lovely.
When Cooper was born, I gave up caffeine cold turkey. This time? Sweets. I was going to cut chocolate out anyway because it has a history of bothering the babies' tummies, but I went whole-hog and abandoned it all. For "dessert" I have been eating grapes, clementines, or Greek yogurt. It's really hard! I ordered baked goods for Easter next weekend and felt a pang knowing I won't be eating them. Sigh.
