MIA

Quick, before she wakes up from her nap!

I haven't read a news site, watched a news program, or followed any current event at all this whole month.  A few days ago, I asked my husband, "Is Corey Haim dead or something?"

I want to get back to my hobby, but it's just so low on the totem pole.  But I do need to get back to at least reading the news.

And maybe once I know what's going on, I might have something to say here.  In between feedings.

1 I'm glad you're getting the chance to just be with your little girl. But I know having waited long for these moments doesn't make the hard ones any easier now. Hang in there!

Take a break Sarah!  You have more important things to do.  The world will still be turning even if you're not paying attention all the time.  ;o)

 

I just started back to school this week for the first time in 20+ years and my attention span to the web is very constricted.  I miss it, and squeeze it in when I can (this is the first place I went today--and every day), it's an adjustment in my time I have to make right now.

 

Baby Time is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much more important than school, so believe me, no one here begrudges you at all!  [Cheers from the crowd!]  Infancy goes so incredibly fast, soak up every Blessed second of it you can get.

 

I've been holding off 'til the right time, and since I'm posting, this must be it.  The BEST advice I got being a 1st time mom was this:

 

Night time feedings are just that.  Just feeding.  Don't turn on the lights, don't play and talk with your angel.  Just feed.  Full tummy, back to sleep.  (I always did it in the recliner, just so I wouldn't be tempted to fall back asleep with baby.)  The very first day I started my boy on cereal he slept through the night.  (3 mos.?)  My sister had her kid sleeping in Mom & Dad's bed until he was five.  Didn't want to go there at all.  Bed time was never an issue from the get go for me and mine.

Thanks for taking the time to share what you have.  I wouldn't have been disappointed if you didn't post for weeks at a time.

Bless all of you!  Enjoy this wonderful beginning of your family!

3 When I first saw the title, I thought, "Who's Mia?"

Then I realized you're Mia.

You haven't missed out of much. I'm sure that if the USA became the USSA, your husband would have told you.

4 Ditto what everyone else said.  Good advise about feeding and back to sleep for nighttime.  Really, you'll look back on this time and realize just how fast it went by...you are doing the most important thing for now!  Continued best wishes for your family.

MIA stands for "Mom in action," right?

6 Above all, DO NOT WATCH THE NEWS, it might spoil your milk.

7 Trust me, it will all be there when you finally do have time to get back to it.  Not to worry. If anything hugely major happens you'll find out without having to watch anything - someone will call or email you. 

I think I missed most of the 1980's because of the kids.  Heh.

Wow this is what I get for finishing grad school and not touching a blog for almost a year?  Maybe I should stay away from blogging a little more often.

Congrats to you and dad!  What a beautiful little chub chub.  I'm so very happy for you all.
