Slowing Down

Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.

-E.B. White, Charlottes Web.


I have been blessed with no morning sickness thus far, but am really tired. It is as though everything I do is underwater, in slow motion, with a thickness to it. I definitely don't have my usual energy.


I think deep inside me, perhaps, I am mourning my future sleepless nights in advance. That is the one thing that I found the hardest about being a new mother, the lack of sleep.


The double whammy, of course, is that you are not supposed to drink coffee, right? Well, I have cut back but I would be in dire straights if I had to give it up entirely. I drank a lot of coffee with Babou because my life was very busy back then, moving, working, lots going on. It is my one vice and I am keeping it. We all have to survive, after all.

Those first few months are rough. Take care of yourself. Just think how hard your body is working right now, which explains the fatigue early on.
Hang in there - 2nd trimester energy will come soon!

You've got to get the rest while you can--I'm a big believer in listening to your body and giving it what it wants.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Your getaway looked divine, BTW--just catching up with some reading and how thrilling! A baby for you and Babou!
Enjoy this time of rest.

Hi Jo!

It's your new friend from Hole in the Fence. I finally got a chance to check out your blog. That photo blows me away. Yours? Love, love, love b&w.

How cool! Two is SO much fun. We thought we were having one, but...I'm so glad we got two.

You're on my feed reader now, so I'll be stopping by on occasion with more useless tidbits.

Cheers,

Samson
