Our New Life...

Having a newborn is pretty stressful especially when Claira had the photo therapy coz she needs to be fed every 2 to 3 hours to avoid dehydration. Now that she's finish with the photo therapy, our life is more relax. We are so thankful that Claira is not a colic baby. She likes to sleep most of the time and only cries when I'm changing her diaper or when she's really hungry. I guess she doesn't like the cold wet wipes. When it's time to eat for hubby and me, we sometimes put her in the bouncer on top of the dining table so she can join us even if she's asleep. We just don't want her to be alone except if it's really needed like if we're doing some chores in the kitchen or do laundry. It's nice to have her around. Watching her sleep and making faces made us smile too. Yesterday I put her on my lap while I was updating this blog, she's sound asleep and suddenly she laugh, sob, frown and smile. It's so amazing how a little person can change our life. It might not be easy for us to go out now that she's here with us but time flies to fast. I know for sure that when she grows up we will miss the time when she's so tiny. My lady friends were talking about it that they miss those days when they have a newborn that's why they're so excited to see our little angel.

Now I'm feeling better as long as I won't forget to take my pain reliever or else I'm in pain and can't do anything. I ask my Pinay friend who work with my OB if it's okay for me to drive and she said yes as long as I don't take the narcotic pain reliever and that's what I did so I can shop around while hubby is taking care of the baby at home. I was able to go out last Friday, grocery shopping and shopping for Claira's clothes. She's so tiny that the newborn and 0-3 months clothes are loose for her so I bought preemie clothes. Claira is under quarantine for 2 months according to her Pediatrician so we can't bring her out unless needed. That really surprises me.

I still didn't have enough sleep because I want to accomplish some chores during the day while Claira is sound asleep. At night time when it's time for me to sleep, Claira keeps on waking me up when she's making noise which I thought she needs something or what but when I check on her she's just dreaming. Sometimes she asks for milk or has a wet diaper. It's tiring to be a mom but I enjoy what I'm doing. I'm hoping to have a good night sleep tonight so I can do more chores tomorrow. :)

Here I am with Claira while I'm blogging.

Claira and me... nose to nose. ^_^
