Now Parenting: Week 6

Sunday was a wash. After being out earlier, all three of us were tired enough to nap in the afternoon. Monday was more productive, for writing, and me being outside late for 10 minutes when it wasn’t raining, and playing with Alexandra in the chair with the panda flower earlier, and her health card arrived, and belated bath night, and somehow she drank 5 ounces at dinner. Though that’s becoming standard.

Tuesday was an up and down day. Seems we can’t give her milk right from the fridge any more, need to warm it up. Pity. She woke up automatically before 4am for a feed, which we’ll start to have to make on demand. Also, for the first time, some of her clothes aren’t quite fitting. But so far so good? (Ignore the slight breakdown as I felt I didn’t know what to do late evening.)

Wednesday night was a bit of a mess, leading to bouts of unconsciousness on Thursday. Also, my knee started giving me enough pain that I was limping at times; I need to take care of my IT band over getting activity stars. Still went on a stroll with Alexandra and Anne-Lise on Friday though, and then tackled the cedar hedges (most of them) on Saturday after returning from ShadBrunch. Oh, and Wynonna Earp’s back on air. Up next, I have this idea of using the bassinet mattress in bed, we’ll see how that goes?
