Fantasizing About Sleep... ZZZzzz
So I keep waiting to get used to not sleeping, but it just isn't happening. Now I know why people have kids when they are 20. Haha! I am so damn exhausted! This kid is lucky that I love him so much.
I can't even tell if it's day or night sometimes anymore. Thank God that I work from home! I don't know what I'd do if I had to do this, and go to an office or workplace every day.
He's a funny little guy. He sits there with a moody looking face for about 5 minutes, then lets out a really loud scream, then instantaneously stops crying and smiles. Don't ask me what happened. I think he must be pushing out a painful fart or something. I think it's hilarious how quickly he can switch moods.
Yay! Everyone is awake! Joy!
He seems to revel in everyone being delirious. That's when he smiles the most! It is impossible to be mad at the little guy though. I actually can't wait until he's able to actually interact with us a bit better - other than just demanding food, to be held, or having his shitty diaper changed. Ah, life!
I keep thinking about how someday he'll come storming in and say:
I hate you dad! You don't care about me!
That's when I'm going to bust out with the detailed record that I've been keeping of these early weeks and months to come. This is an interesting time in history, in that we're able to so easily video, record and document everything that happens. As long as it doesn't interfere too much with the experience itself, that is.
For now, I'll just continue to enjoy him being so tiny and cute and get the sleep as it comes. Right now, as I write this, he's snoozing away listening to Bach on Alexa. Fingers crossed he comes out as a musical genius! Time for me to hone my piano skills in preparation....
