744 Hours - Baltimore, MD - June 2010

I have been a mother for 744 hours (1 month). I don't think I've slept more than 100 of those hours. Sometimes I'm so tired that I find myself laughing at nothing and crying when I receive sweet packages containing little "happies" from our friends and loved ones.

I feel like I've come a long way in such a short amount of time. For example, I was embarthe first time I had to answer the door to the UPS man and sign for my package with a screaming baby in my arms fearing he would phone up DHS. Now I scribble my signature with a smile that says "what are you gonna do?" and he smiles back at me and says, "they do grow out of it, I promise".

Some people use a stuffed animal to show there little one's growth progress, but my mother-in-law gave El The Hungriest Caterpillar book and it came with a caterpillar with this butterfly blanket inside. That's what we're gonna use so you can watch our little butterfly grow.
