Life with the baby: Every night is a party

I was blessed with a really sweet baby.  However, after she had been home about a week and a half she started to sleep all day and wanted to party at 11 PM, 1 AM, 3 AM, 5 AM and 7AM.  I think that someone told her that her mama used to be a party girl.  They clearly forgot to emphasize “used to be”! 

When I was pregnant someone told me to get all of the sleep that I could.  Despite that advice I was not at all prepared for the extent of the sleep deprivation.  It was as if I was in a constant trance.  I slept. I nursed. And I thought about sleeping, nursing and sleep during the "break time". 

All in all, life was good.  I had a healthy baby who was acting like, a baby.  I didn't have anything serious to worry about. 

Eventually though the sleep deprivation, inexperience and anxiety of being a new parent made me more than a little crazy...
