I'm Back and With Baby

It's been over 2 months since my last blog, but you know what, get over it! I am lucky if I get a shower every day with Sophia, so Tom is happier when I am clean than if I have time to rant about my day.

Let's start on October 16th when I was admitted into the hospital because the little munchkin was due on the 11th and was holding on for dear life inside my belly. It took 28 hours of sitting around doing absolutely nothing except being pumped full of drugs for anything to happen! The worst part, I could not even eat. Really? The doctors were afraid something would happen, hello, I wanted something to happen!

Epidurals are heaven! Once they get it in correctly. It took them 3 tries (3rd time is a charm), an hour and me screaming, "I told you idiots I did not want students doing procedures on me!" only to find out they weren't students, just not very good at it. It's time to push. Oh really? I can't feel anything, might want to back off the drugs just a wee bit.

Maternity Leave can be very boring. I watched so many Christmas movies, it was not even funny. How many Christmas Carol variations are even possible - Mickey's Christmas Carol, A Diva's Christmas Carol, Ebbie, Cupid Christmas, Three Wise Women. I watched them all!

I also took time daily to pose Sophia with different things (see picture above). She has now mastered the phone, the remote, had a cupcake, hosted a tea party, hung out at the beach with her tropical umbrella and parrot. My favorite was the tea party where she was hosting a pink poodle named Fifi with her poodle tea set!

I love her onesie that says "This is my little black dress." Despite my attempts, my husband would not let me add "This is my little black dress, bitch." I thought she needed some attitude!

Getting into a routine has been a challenge. She does what she wants, when she wants. She must get that from her father!
