Jackson has been holding his head up most of the day now, unless he is tired and fighting sleep. I think it's still too early to introduce the bumbo or the exersaucer, but it definitely won't be long now.
|Jackson says, "Thanks for dinner, Mom."|
My doctor told me I'm free to exercise and have sex as much as I want, but to go slow if either hurts. I can't tell you how much I want to do both of those things, but I don't know when or how anymore. I can't just go to the gym for an hour after work or go for an impromptu run anymore. I haven't really worked out in nearly a year and I am at my heaviest weight (as my Ross shopping trip reminded me yesterday). I just want my body back to where it was last May. As far as sex goes, I desperately miss the intimacy but flabby skin and stitches does not increase anyones sex drive! Sex would solely revolve around Jackson's schedule. I'm nervous about my breasts leaking or Jackson waking up screaming. I can't imagine that would go over well in the heat of the moment!
I am especially tired tonight, but not sleepy. I've cooked, cleaned, washed and hung the laundry, and dealt with a fussy baby most of the day; now I want to unwind. Jackson sleeps the best and longest between 9 p.m.--1 a.m. I know I need to sleep then, but I just want to relax by myself late at night. I'm so sick of people telling me to sleep when he sleeps. It just doesn't work that way for me. It drives me crazy when people assume since I stay home I can just nap all day. Not hardly...
