Those Sleepless Nights

You know exactly what I am talking about! What can I say...It happens with a new baby...People say it will soon be over but when you are at it, 'over' seems to be too far away...

I came home from work and quickly bathe baby and pumped milk before he went to sleep. I took a shower myself, ate dinner and couldn't force my eyelids any longer. At 8:30pm, Hobbit found me sleeping with my devotionals on my chest, next to baby. And I didn't even get to my thanksgiving list!

Then I thought I have slept like a thousand years...But I had to get up for baby's feeding time. Thank you Lord for a faithful roommate with extraordinary ears...He never failed to catch baby awake. After his feed, another endless task-- tucking a full and happy baby to sleep. A much dreaded job for Hobbit and I, only if he kicks and transforms into a cranky little sheep! Eleven-ish...

At two-ish, another lapse of cry spurts out and again the cycle continues. This time with baby's eyes wide open! He finally settled, not quite...at four-ish! To me, "it's four already??" One more hour for slumber and work kicked in...Dreams of general liability insurance at TechInsurance.com lasted only a sec...Darn!

This evening, The above routine starts again...All because of love!

Back to Work

My maternity leave is finally over and I resumed work yesterday. It was like the first day of school. Like many of my first day back to school excitement, I have hard time choosing what to wear! Many a times it was about first impression but this time it is more like how to cover up all those accumulated fats...It is a sad thing that I had to temporarily say goodbye to some of my work clothes but at the same time, they also served as a reminder that I need to get back in shape. Tv wall mounts needed to get the exercise going soon...

I didn't quite understand this motherly instincts at first but when I was about to leave home yesterday, My heart sunk and I almost broke down to tears knowing that I won't see my little baby Hobb for almost a day! Two weeks after the delivery, my parents left and it was just baby Hobb and I most of the time...Now work and reality kicks in, I have no choice but to learn detachment. I hope I pick up fast, otherwise I already have the next option in line!
