And my little girl seems to be waking up a bit! Her awake times are longer, and she's a bit crankier. Today I wore or held her all day. Nighttime sleep is hit or miss, she will do OK one night and keep us up all night the next. I'm starting to worry a bit about sleep once I go back to work - she will be 6 weeks adjusted age and could very well be up every few hours. On the other hand, nights might be the only time I see her - I will be out of the house 7:30 AM to at least 7:30 PM every day except Friday, when I will work from home. I hope we can make it work.
It's odd that my leave is just supposed to be starting but it's half over! I'm trying to focus on the weeks I have left rather than those that have passed. I still have mixed feelings about the birth - I am hoping my due date passing will help me feel like things are how they are supposed to be.
