Little Luna, or Boona or Boo Boo as we affectionately call her, is now four months old.
How time flies.
She is having a nap. So cute.
On my side, I’ve been noticing the effects of a cumulative lack-of-sleep and breastfeeding multiple times in the night for the past four months. Most particularly:
- bruises all over my body. I seem to have a lack of spatial awareness and co-ordination. Which means I just run into things all the time. At speed. So I am black and blue. I’m at one large bruise a day at the moment….
- inability to control my facial muscles, particularly around my mouth, when talking sometimes. Like, they just go a bit crazy on their own. As if I were going to cry or something, in the middle of a normal conversation. I get odd looks from the people I’m talking to. Weird. I hope this one disappears soon…
But on the positive side, Luna is well over the 100% percentile for weight, which is awesome as O is still off the other end of the scale. So at least I have one fat little dumpling. Yay. And she slept through the night for three nights in a row – from 6:30 pm to 4:30 am this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, before reverting on Wednesday and last night to a single feed at 2:30 and then another at 6:30 am. WIN! I’m hoping that this is the start of a new period which lasts for at least a few weeks!!
This is my life. Feeding, sleeping, eating, watching, learning and trying to rest in-between.
But the rewards are big. Look at this beautiful girl!!
