Sleepless in SF - 6 Weeks Postpartum

It’s been over 6 weeks since Mateo’s birth, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of handling 2 children.  Last night was the first night that Mateo slept for almost 4 hours straight.  It’s odd to think that I was happy that Mateo woke me up crying at a quarter to four in the morning.  But I was happy, because it could’ve been 2 am instead. This isn’t my first time around the block, but I’ll admit I still have my moments of desperation where I end up near tears thinking, “I can’t do this anymore!” and it’s usually around four in the morning.  So actually being happy at four in the morning last night was a welcome turn of events.

I remember asking the pediatrician to remind me when the sleepless nights would get better at Mateo’s VERY FIRST APPOINTMENT.  She reminded me that it would take 3 months at least.  I’m halfway there!

You always take the cutest photos. Its so interesting to watch/listen to your updates and see how things are going, plus, you're hilarious. :) And that Mateo is a cutie, even with his sock hands! :)
