Either way I got no sleep last night, which is always fun the next day. My patience is about ice thin right now and the girls are skating all over it, trying their best to crack it. I just keep counting to ten with deep breaths. Kinda like you do in labor.
It was all for a good reason. David and Brenda had their baby girl, Moira Zabel this morning around 8:30, I believe. She was only in labor for five hours from start to finish. On the one hand I'm wowed by that, and on the other hand, the one that spent twenty plus hours in labor with all three girls, that hand is calling Brenda a bitch right now. But in the most loving way possible I assure you, because I do love Brenda. And she's been a big supporter of this blog from the beginning. Hi Brenda! Anyway-I'm so happy for them that their second baby made it into the world safe and sound, and as a present for her big sister, Brigid, whose birthday happens to be tomorrow.
The other reason I'm okay with my lack of sleep today, is because I know the girls will sleep better tonight. Therefore, I should sleep better tonight. Brenda and David now have a newborn again. They will not have sleep for at least six months. If this baby is like Lana, maybe two years. As much as I sometimes miss those newborn days, I do not envy that kind of sleep deprivation.
Good luck guys and have fun! Now the real craziness begins since you have two. If you have any doubts go back and re-read some of these blogs. Most of all, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Everything will be great, and I can't wait to see my newest niece. Oh, and really most importantly remember, breast feeding is NOT birth control. Again-if you have any doubts...
An aside to Brenda-I promise I'm okay with you guys calling last night. No worries!
