A day with a baby

If the day goes well, it looks something like:

1am: contemplate sleep, get last feeding ready
2am: feed last feeding upstairs in Tristan’s room, burp him, fail to burp him, change diaper, succeed in burping him, hold him as he fusses
3am: lie down next to a snoring James with Tristan on the other side, convince Tristan to go to sleep
3:20am: stick sleeping Tristan in his bassinet and tuck a blanket around him, try to fall asleep
8am: hear the telltale fussings of a hungry baby, get up, get bottle and baby, retreat to Tristan’s room, feed/burp/diaper
9am: repeat convincing baby to sleep, get him to bassinet, go to sleep, wake up for James’s alarm, snuggle with James until he leaves for work, go back to sleep
10am, 11am: wake up as Tristan sleep-fusses, rejoice as he settles back down
12:30pm: wake up as Tristan fusses and get him a bottle, go downstairs and feed/burp/diaper
2pm: put Tristan in bouncy chair as he alternately giggles and fusses, pump milk
3pm: hold Tristan as he practices lifting his neck and fusses, write journal entry, debate getting shit done

..and this is a day where everything goes well!
