First, let me address a few questions/comments about the Baby Bjorn post from yesterday:
1. Yes, I vacuumed with her right there and she didn't wake up. Personally, I think life should carry on as normal when a baby is sleeping and this includes not shielding her from loud background noises. I don't want a light sleeper; I want to train this kid to sleep through Armageddon! Also, I read that most babies find the normal white noises of machines (vacuum, washer, dryer, dishwasher, A/C, etc) to be soothing, not disruptive to their sleep.
2. Yes, bending over is tricky because you don't want the baby to slide right out onto her skull. When I had to bend down, I braced her head with my free hand. I also discovered that I am capable of picking up many items with my toes.
Okey-dokey, that's it.
Yesterday was a pretty uneventful day. Norah pooped on her changing table as I was changing her -- it kinda shot outta there like champagne pops out of a freshly uncorked bottle. It got on my hand and was gross. And that was pretty much the story of my day.
Well, that, and I cried when I thought my BlackBerry was dead (turns out the battery was just dead and needed a full recharging). These post-partum hormones are a real bitch to deal with: One minute I'm Sally-Happy-Pants, the next I'm Debbie-Downer. Oh well, the crying wasn't a big deal; turns out I just needed some Jer-Bear cuddling and a bowl of chocolate ice cream. Then I felt better.
