It Ain't Glamorous

This is what a night of little sleep looks like. If I get a shower today I'll be happy :)
Connor will be a month old tomorrow and time has just flown. I go back to work in a month and I'm sure it will be hard. He's started to smile a little bit this week and it's so cute! The last couple of nights have been rough because little mister has been crying and throwing fits. I think he's just hungry so we've upped his milk again. I don't know what the normal amount you are supposed to feed them at this age is? I guess just until they are full....

Pumping is going well and I'm able to keep up with what he needs! Thank you Lord! I'm already looking forward to the end of May when my ENTIRE family is coming to visit! Bonnie, Jason, Jarrett, Mom, Dad, Nannie, A. Karli, U. Gary, & Lindsey!!! Yeah! We will get to see each other's babies FINALLY and celebrate our 29th birthday together!

Terence and I have been watching Lost and finally caught up to the current season. That show is CrAzY! I am sad that Locke turned into a bad person! :( I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

No, it certainly isn't! The first few months - if I got a shower before Dan got home from work, I called the day a success!

Girl, you are doing GREAT!! He is too too precious! Keep up the good work.

I am totally hooked on LOST too... it's just blowing my mind these days. Crazy.

As for a "normal amount" of milk... there is no such thing. I have nannied at least a dozen young babies and they were all 100% different... so until he's full, I wouldn't worry about it!

Go mamma go!!

I'm kinda digging the messy look on you Becky! :)

Becky said...

Down side: you're tired. Up side (besides having an adorable son): you can totally rock the bedhead look.

What a cutie!

Karla said...

Becky, I completely agree with Classy Fab Sarah, just feed them till they're full (you'll know when it's too much!).

It's ok to let him cry while you shower. Just bring in the boppy and put him in it. Gooner actually liked the sounds of the shower and the steam. And after a shower the day seems SO MUCH more manageable. Let me know a good day for us to pop in!

Aww! Good thing you have such a handsome little man!! ;-)

Elle said...

Hang in there! Things will feel so much better when your sister gets there. They always do!

Katy said...

OMG! Connor looks so much like you in this picture! Up until I've seen Terence, Terence, Terence but today is ALL BECKY!

Lindsey said...

Oh my goodness you are so cute!! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. That's so fun that your parents went to good ol' Kansas State. Too bad we didn't make it to the final 4. :(

It's crazy to think its already been a month since he was born. And I'm sure if it felt fast to me, it must feel even faster for you. And Happy 1 month birthday to Conor!

Heather said...

But you wouldn't trade it for anything in the world right?! :) You look beautiful momma!! Congrats on your baby!! He is precious!

Jenn said...

A month already?! Wow, if it doesn't seem that long to me, it must really be flying for you. Also, if you saw me after no sleep and irregular showers, you'd know you're looking pretty good :)

Debbie said...
