right now i am sitting on the couch in my living room, surrounded by the baby things that are making short order of conquering our house, and i am typing…. one handed.
cohen wants to be held up against my chest with his fuzzy little head between my shoulder and my cheek and his face against my neck. this requires at least one my hands to take on the full time job of securing my little bug, who is much stronger than the average newborn.
so i am living life one handed.
its amazing how quickly one can adjust to major changes like this…i mean, for 26 years i have been using two hands to do everything…laundry, dishes, feeding myself, going to the bathroom..you name it..if i have done it, you can bet i have had to luxury of using both hands. but amazingly in two weeks time, i have relearned how to do everything one handed while holding an infant. impressive, if i do say so myself. *grin* (can you tell we slept through the night last night? ahh…Mama is well rested!)
well i wanted to post something with yesterday being mother’s day and all, but it was a pretty full one for us so i didn’t get the chance…
i woke to cohen crying needing fed and then to shawn bopping down the stairs saying ‘happy mama’s day, babe’ we all laid around a bit in the morning just enjoying life. i got a beautiful card and flowers..thank you very much, honey. then we spent a good deal of the afternoon buying flowers and plants to finish the yard. i should say that although we all went and looked at plants, shawn is really the master landscaper…the yard is looking amazing…then afterwards we went out to dinner…i told them we only needed seats for two, thinking we could put cohen in his little carrier under the table, but alas we couldn’t. who knew? we are learning so many new things being parents! (hear the sarcasm) after dinner we all cuddled up on the couch and watched ‘stranger than fiction’. i fell asleep between my two boys about 20 minutes in…it was a good day.
