Happy Monday! Happy week of christmas! WOW! I can’t believe christmas is here already, and then 2017 comes! Honestly, it has been so busy, I haven’t focused on christmas. I have most of my shopping done, except for gift cards, but it’s just not feeling like christmas yet! Since we can’t go to my parents, it will feel a little different this year. But, I am so excited for the boys to open gifts and for Elisabetta’s first christmas!
So, it has been nuts over here as you can imagine! Rocco still slowly adjusting and just having a newborn. I am SO grateful Mike is home helping, as Rocco’s struggles are hard right now. It would be very difficult if I didn’t have him here to help with Rocco. Rocco is adjusting though slowly, and when Mike goes back to work we will be fine. Good thing too is that he is at therapy a few days a week, so that helps me out, since he is struggling to be near baby.
Our weekend was just a whirlwind, as all the days are! Haha! I am so blessed but so tired! Sharing some weekend highlights for MIMM!
Friday night Rocco had therapy, so Mike took him and when he picked him up, he picked us up Chipotle!
Baby and Chipotle = Heaven
That night we watched some christmas movies like ELF, and just relaxed. As I mentioned before, the baby can’t go anywhere really. Colds and pneumonia are bad right now in my area especially, and that is not good if she would get either.
Saturday, Mike and Rocco went to Target to get some things we needed. ( I haven’t been to target in two weeks, crazy! ) and we had some amazing dinner plans that night at home.
WINE! So happy I got my first glass post baby, it tasted so good!
SUSHI! Heaven it was, missed it so much!
Excited parents! Wine just calms the nerves, and our nerves are shot with baby girl’s lung issue.
( my hair, lol! )
It was so mice to have sushi and wine, and I can’t wait until we can go out and have some again some day!
Sunday was donut Sunday! Rocco and I headed to Dunkin to get a donut for him! Our tradition! We like to go to Tim Horton’s for donuts, too!
Snap chat had us in the holiday spirit!
A happy boy with a sprinkle donut <3
Overall the weekend was exhausting, busy, and beautiful <3
Newborn Mom Life is tiring, but worth it all! I am doing very well, and getting my sleep at night when she is sleeping. I feel great, but I do have moments when thoughts race through my head about her lung issue. I get scared and worry, I cry and break down. But, I am grateful to have so much love and support, and GOD to get me through the down times. It’s hard not to worry, but I really try to focus on positive and know she’s going to be ok. Just scary as hell, my nerves are shot. Little things set me off, like last night she wouldn’t eat at one feeding and it freaked me out. I then thought something was wrong, but she really was just in deep sleep and not ready to eat.
Guys, I have to say I have never been on such pins and needles, and I can’t wait until this lung and heart situation is all fixed. Then I can breathe again, and not stress like crazy.
Daddy is adjusting well, he is stressed too about our little girl as you can imagine. He is so excited he has a little princess now, and its so sweet <3
I know my little guy will adjust a little every day, as long as he know mommy loves him and will do anything for him, that’s all that matters. <3
Happy Monday, friends! Today we have therapist coming over this morning. Not doing much today besides some online christmas shopping, setting stuff up for upcoming accountability group I have next month, and maybe wrapping some gifts!
See you tomorrow! Unless shit gets too cray and I don’t have a chance to pop in!
How was your weekend?
