From one mutha to anotha

Reflections on Two Weeks of Motherhood

To sum it all up, basically my schedule revolves around eating. Eva wakes up in the morning and wants to eat. I feed her. Then I eat. Then I bathe or shower. Then she usually wants to eat again fairly soon. I feed her. Then I have a nap. I nap until she wakes up and wants to eat. I feed her. Then sometimes I have time to do stuff like blogging, but there is always something to do and email checking and picture uploading seem to not be so important. I eat or I visit grandparents. Or I hang out with Eva. Now she usually stays awake for a good part of this time. Then she wants to eat again. I feed her. Usually this is during our suppertime. Then I will try to eat something and go to bed and try to fall asleep as fast as I can. This is usually around 8 or 9. She sleeps, she wakes, I feed her. She sleeps, she wakes, I feed her. Then we start again.

So I do wish that I have been uploading more photos for you all and sending more updates, but little tasks like that sometimes just get pushed aside until there is time.

Eva is wonderful. She is so funny and fiesty and she has quite the little personality. You should meet her, if you haven’t already. She is growing and growing and changing every day.

Check Flickr for some photos.

    Not sure if you would know me. But I just wanted to say Congrats. My parents live in Estevan and my mom is good friends with your mom (Chelsey) and I knew Peter when he was younger when I attended WCC. Just came accross your blog when I was blog surfing. Your baby girls is so sweet! Congratulations again! There’s nothing more fulfilling than being a parent!
    Take Care, Laurie Bouchard

    Thanks for the update Chels and the pictures, they are really nice to see… but don’t worry all that much about pushing them aside for a bit either – I think maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be for you right now… thinking of you guys often.

    She is so beautiful. I love the picture of Peter holding her at the keyboards. We are so glad to hear you are all doing well. Our baby is due in two weeks and three days. We are so excited. Cyrus’ parents arrive on Jan 25th and will be here until Feb 28th. We can’t wait. Take care and give our cousin a kiss for us.
