I can’t believe it has almost been a month since we’ve brought little Jemma home. Time has been put on pause as the days and nights are filled with a never ending cycle of diaper changing, feeding, and then diaper changing again. Jemma’s favorite pass time is to spend her days, nights, and every moment in between, sleeping on her mom’s or dad’s chest. Anything else absolutely won’t due. Also, when putting her to sleep or comforting her, don’t for a moment think that you can grab your phone and catch up on your email or reading as she’s drifting off; because she will quickly let you know that you are being rude.
Irina has been amazing! I don’t know how she can do it with the miniscule amount of sleep that she’s getting. Really appreciate her and everything she does.
But its not always as bad as I’ve made it seem. There are times when she’s fed, her diaper dry, and her tummy is not bothering her. In those rare moments she’ll intently study her surroundings with those gorgeous sapphire blue eyes, and melt your heart with her amazing smile. In those moments nothing else matters and its all worth it.
Also, Irina and I have started practicing a new trade this month. Like vultures we’ve been circling Jemma with our iPhone’s in our hands snapping away. I think each day we take at least a couple of dozen pictures on our iPhones. But hey! The upside is if I ever lose my day job, I can always try out being a paparazzi.
In spite of all the iPhone photography going on, I was able to get a few shots on film.
