Anytime I think about how hard it is to take care of a newborn, I almost immediately think about the single parents out there. I have SO MUCH respect for them, especially with more than one child. UGH.
Barry got called to a teaching job this morning so I have Alexsa by myself today. Just chilling at the house isn't a big deal, but we have to go out today, which means I needed to shower and make myself presentable. The thought of taking a shower w/ the risk of leaving Alexsa wailing scared the poo out of me and even thought about forgoing the shower. But I knew the day would have to come sooner or later, so after our morning feeding i laid her in her basinette and took a shower. She was SO good! I love how independent she is (and it scares me at the same time!) She just lay there all content, and I even had an extra minute or so to just relax in the shower before turning off the water. This is how happy she was when I came out of the bathroom:
Then I was able to get dressed and blowdry my hair before she was ready for some attention.
She's so great!
