Even Ninjas need to rest....

I can't believe it has been 19 days. 19 days since my life flip-turned-upside-down (said like the Fresh Prince, yo). Look at my little guy! He is so tough and ninja that as you can see above, he even knocks himself around to prove how manly he is!


We have good days and bad days, but the worst thing is still sleep deprivation. It does wonders for a person who is as naturally crazy as me. Add that to painkillers... it's a daily circus. I have daily, even hourly breakdowns.... being a mother IS the hardest thing in the world. I am neurotic and anxious and scared....this is really, really, really hard.

I just have to say that the difficult pregnancy and labor gave me the biggest blessing ever, and Carter is a wonderful, happy, and pretty much easy baby. He hardly ever cries. He just snorts when he is hungry (which is ALL THE STINKING TIME). He tends to get a little pissed off when he is naked, because that is so un-awesome, but other than that, he is just curious, precious, and a hungry little pig. And I love him. As soon as he fixes the whole day/night mix up (he gets up every stinking hour at night!), we'll be good...
He keeps giving Jake and I looks (see above) like "Who the heck are you? I thought I was in Brangelina's line in heaven....." He also tends to squeak like a high-pitched dolphin, which some people might not perceive as manly, but I think it is a ninja warning call.
Yes, Cap'n CARRRRRRRRRRTER is still Captain Awesome.

Oh. My. Heavens. He is so adorable! Seriously!! And you will sleep again someday, and it's totally normal to be kind of psycho right now. Good job making an adorable little ninja baby!

What a cutie! Being a mom isn't easy, I had break downs at first because it seemed so overwhelming but it gets easier. It is hard too when you don't get much sleep. You are doing great! He will soon be into everything and being a "really" good vacuum that picks up everything- it flies by so enjoy it!! You're so funny, how you just tell it like it is!!

He's so adorable! I'm waiting for my chance to squish him with LOVE! Yes, being a mommy is H-A-R-D!! Just hold on to the good moments and try not to go crazy. That's all we can do. Call me when you're on the brink, I'll probably be there too. We can laugh ourselves back to sanity. Loves!

He's so cute. Hang in there! It gets easier, but it is the hardest job in the world! You'll be a new woman in about 6 weeks! :)
