Today has been amazing. Brendan had to go into get some stuff done at work and it didn't freak me out at all! Ingrid and I ate breakfast, I got in a shower, Otis is now nursing thanks to the help of my new best friend, the nipple shield. Things have gotten a lot more relaxed around here. Phew!
Ingrid and I wrapped presents for Daddy and Otis, we folded laundry, listened to Christmas music, and ate snacks. I put Otis in the sling for the first time, but before that Ingrid wanted to see if she still fit. She does, but man, after holding her chunky monkey butt in it for five minutes, Otis seemed even more tiny! He just snuggled right in and fell asleep as we went about our business.
And speaking of tiny: one of my favorite newborn pictures of Ingrid was her in the bouncy seat. Looking back at the seat now, it's amazing she ever fit into it, you know? So I had to take one of Otis, too. He's such a papoose in his swaddle blanket, a baby burrito barely taking up any space in his seat at all!!
Someday we'll look back at this and sigh and say remember when he was that small??
