still alive and feeling love in completely new places

hello!

do you know what happens in this house when you have a baby? you forget that you have a blog and that there are other amazing blogs out there to read. and then you sit down for a second, instead of doing the dishes like you should, and for a minute, you remember these things and you start exploring. and then the baby makes a noise and you stop and look up. he's squirming but he's still asleep. 

so you go back to the computer for a bit. but then your nipples start to hurt. yes, i said nipples. it's the weirdest shit, guys. boob madness all day, every day. 

when i see him, they hurt. 
when he cries, they hurt. 
when it's time for him to eat, they hurt. 

dear emotions - get out of my boobs! 

i have enough emotion and feeling and love everywhere else. the last place i need them is in my breasts. because let me tell you, these ladies are already large enough. 

as in, no vacancy. 
fully boarded. 
milk production in the highest, hosana.

for serious.

but milk must be doing someone good because he's gained over a pound since we left the hospital AND that ridiculously cute river slept from 830pm - 2am last night. and then i fed him and he went back to sleep until 6am. 

um, winners up in the hizouse! 

see that second photo...that's his champion sleeper arm stretch. 


dear river - i love you so so so much.
and so do my boobs, clearly.

  11. So this has to be said.. Around 6 months ago, I would not classify myself as a baby person.

    Now.. I LOVE BABIES! I don't even know. In particular, I love your baby. Even though to me, he is a virtual baby, I love him nonetheless.

    Hope your nip nips hurt less soon! X

  12. Omg this child is too freaking cute. And I love your descriptions because normally women are all "ohhh everything is wonderful!" but you're giving me an honest view into the severe pain in the boobage. That is important to me!!

  17. Aw, so adorable! I have a 2 1/2 month old so I can relate to not getting stuff done and forgetting blogs! Right now I should be sleeping, but hey why not check out other cool blogs instead? With all of her health problems I wasn't able to breastfeed though so I don't have the boob problems, just the holy crap formula is expensive problems haha.

    As a fellow new mom I of course had to follow your blog (GFC and bloglovin), you can find me over at thedomesticgeek.blogspot.com

  22. Congratulations on your beautiful little boy, love his name btw. Your post was hilarious, I never experienced the whole breastfeeding thing as my girl was born with a cleft palate, but I can imagine it's challenging LOL and so worth the love :-)

    love from Belgium,

  24. Nipple pain should be illegal.

    Little River and your little legs, you are too cute. Come over, we'll each enjoy the boob and then probably nap. - Olly

  26. Just started reading your blog after following you on Twitter for a little while...oh my gosh, this post brings back so many memories! What a little squish you have. The newborn phase is so wonderful/gut-wrenching.
