We've been home almost a week, and even though I've only drank about 6 glasses of wine (2 of them tonight, and I'm already tipsy...), this jetlag thing feels like the longest hangover ever! I would have been fine the day after we came back, but Miss Yummy here is intent on having a big party every night between 1 and 4 AM. Actually, she started it at 4 AM today, so we are crossing our fingers (and toes and anything else that can be crossed) that she stretches it until 5 AM tomorrow.
S and I take turns for the night watch, and as a result, we both have weird biological clocks, waking up at 1 AM even if nothing is moving or crying in the house... And my stomach thinks it's luch time by then!!! I'm so thankful for my mom: she left us a huge box of homemade cookies last Friday, when she filled out our fridge, and even offered to make more if we wanted! What a great excuse to come and visit... ;o)
Yummy turned 10 months yesterday, and we had my parents over for a wine and cheese (no cooking...) dinner. We told them to come by at around 4PM, so they could play with Yummy, and of course they arrived early, but had the supreme elegance (and patience... :o) to go for a walk before ringing the doorbell. Yummy was her usual charming self, and totally seduced her grand-dad, who is as much a goner now than her dad his. Good luck to all the other men in her life!
Apart from that, just surviving the first "real" week of parenthood, having friends drop by to visit and admire, and being happily exhausted. Wouldn't change a thing in my life!
Here are a few pictures, until I get some more energy (and time! Oh, how time flies!) to post again.
(Oh, and by the way, NO, she doesn't always smile! You should hear the ear-piercing cries when she doesn't get her milk EXACTLY when she wants it, which is usually expressed to us with a 12-second notice. Loud enough to make one fail a homestudy...)
This one just cracks me up! Cute little thing in a sling...
Starting to eat on her own. My baby is growing already!
Daddy makes good drinks for the women of his life...
Love the designer cappucino!
(And he claims he didn't do it on purpose... Ha!)
