So the first two weeks home with my new daughter were pretty easy. She sleeps a lot of the time and when she was awake, she was typically happy. I would talk to her and tell her about our family and she would look into my face and be cute. However, she has started being fussy whenever she is awake. This frustrates me. I feel like a bad parent for hoping my child stays asleep all day, just so I don't have to deal with the unhappiness. I realize its just a stage and that she will probably grow out of it soon, but its not fun in the moment.

The adjustment to being at home isn't too hard. I still think about work sometimes. I e-mailed my boss yesterday to wish her a Happy Boss' day and reminded my teammates about it, since I'm the one who typically took care of that type of thing. At the same time, I don't really miss having to get up early to leave the house. Besides I can't get my hair to not be a mess lately and I'm leaking everywhere! I can only manage to look presentable for a short time and I can't imagine not being with my baby all day (even when she is crying).

We visited the doctor yesterday. She has gained 10 oz and grew 1 1/2 inches in two weeks. That's crazy! She is growing so fast!
