:: Update ::

So I’ve been told to do a blog post, but there’s not really much going on over here, so I guess I’ll just give a general update.

I’m fine, although extremely sleep-deprived. I’ve been reading a good bit when I’m awake and not being a slave to my tiny tyrant’s every whim; most lately The Girlfriends’ Guide to the First Year of Motherhood by Vicki Iovine. That book is awesome to read one-handed during the 2:30AM feeding, just because I’m a firm believer that laughter really is the best medicine, especially for postpartum depression (and anyone who isn’t feeling postpartumish when they haven’t been able to sleep all night because they’ve been reduced to a constant food source for a baby going through a growth spurt is just inhuman – or lying).

Arielle is doing well. I ended up saying “screw the doctors” and went ahead and did what I wanted to do, as far as feeding her, and the jaundice went ahead and cleared up on its own; she had her last blood test yesterday (thank god!) and her bili was 8.5, which is out of the danger zone. Now that she’s not jaundiced anymore, she actually woke up on Sunday and has been practicing psychological warfare on me every night since. Did you know that someone who hasn’t slept in 24 hours has the same lack of concentration and about the same response time as someone who is legally intoxicated? I can definitely believe it now.

In other news… My classes are going pretty well; my history professor should be committed, but whatever. It kind of sucks right now because my best friend is moving in less than a month – to Illinois! What the fuck?! But that’s okay, it gives me a good excuse for a road trip to a place I’ve never been before. (Anyone know what there is to do in Illinois?)
