6 week average

Today Emma is 6 weeks old. This is the "big date" that all the books talk about. It’s about this time that she should start developing a sleeping/feeding/playing schedule. It’s about this time that breastfeeding becomes established. It’s about this time that most new moms start to feel like they can make it. It’s about this time that most new moms put on makeup and and feel human since before baby. It’s about this time that crying peaks. It’s about this time that sex happens. It’s about this time that babies smile, gurgle, coo, find their hands. It’s about this time that new moms can think about starting an exercise routine.

So are we the textbook mom and baby? I’m happy to say we are since that means we’re average. Woopee. Never has it felt good to be average. Being above average is great. But being below average would make me feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But I can see the light, and it is glorious! Emma smiles, gurgles, coos, found her hands last week, and really doesn’t cry all that much. I am on the mend, getting out every other day or so, even putting on makeup once in awhile, and gently starting to put this poor saggy body back into shape.

So, yes, I am happy that today I am average.
