So you may have guessed this, but babies sleep a lot. When they’re first born, they sleep upwards of 17 hours a day. You of course don’t feel this because you are feeding and changing diapers every one to two hours and adjusting to a total upheaval of your life. The first week I only got 1-2 hours of sleep a night, but Aria, even when she was awake she still seemed asleep in a way.
A week after Aria was born, I remember sitting there in a dazed stupor full of blissful love for my daughter as I watched her sleep. My husband came in and had to practically shake me to awake me from my daze and get me to eat.
Well a lot has changed in the last year, but one thing stays the same. Aria sleeps a lot and she loves sleeping best when she’s in motion.
So here’s to a year of sleep!
