But I've got this little nugget all snuggled up for my sewing companion. The pillow on top of her is my heat pillow for sore muscles; I've found that if I heat it up to just warm and place it on her, it keeps her asleep as if my hand was there instead.

Miss Maia just refused to go to sleep after about 5 o'clock yesterday. I had to hold her and walk around or rock her for about 4 hours until Rene got home and took over. She was a little fussy but not incredibly; she just wouldn't stay asleep! As soon as I stopped singing her lullabies she'd wake up; my throat got so dry I had to record myself singing and play it back over and over again (thank god for smart phones, don't ever have a child without one). Finally this morning we had an appointment so I had to strap her into her car seat and she's been asleep ever since. I drove around for an extra two hours to keep her asleep, and that was 4 hours ago. I can't bring myself to wake her up! Grandma has taken over so I could finally get a bit of sleep.

So cozy, in bed reading a book, Maia sound asleep on my chest, wonderful way to spend a winter morning. (Nevermind that I'm supposed to be cleaning the house for company tonight, how can I do that when today she only wants to sleep with me? Dear Maia, thanks for giving me an ironclad excuse to not do chores. 😊)
One thing you discover while taking care of a newborn is that you have more appendages than just your arms and legs; your hips, your chin, your nose, all become incredibly useful when it comes to completing tasks one-handed. Also, I've found that I am surprisingly dexterous with my toes

This blog exists to document all the shenanigans that my new baby, Maia Rose, and I get up to here in SoCal, and to satisfy the demand for updates and photos. I'm going to start off this first post with catching everyone up on her newborn pictures. She was only 5lbs 11oz, a tiny little nugget of a baby. You can see how small she was in the picture with Rene holding her. She was so wee!
