Having a newborn is not as easy as you think. Despite the fact that all Thumper does is eat, sleep, and poop it takes a surprising amount of energy to keep up. Mostly due to the fact that she is on her own schedule at the moment which means middle of the night feeding sessions. Everyone has said that I need to sleep when she sleeps, but I am and have never been a napper. Thank goodness M does most of the diaper changes at night (I envy his ability to take care of business and then drift right back to sleep.) In spite of the sleep deprivation things are going well. Thumper is a great baby. She only cries when she needs something and is the most cuddly snuggle bunny I have ever met.
