Today Benji has been with us for two weeks, although I would swear it’s been two months, or even two years. My time sense is all off from getting up at crazy hours day and night. I have no conception of what day of the week it is or what the date is; Benji doesn’t know or care, and I’m on Benji time.
He has started opening his eyes more after feeding, entering a quiet alert phase that is fun for us. Open eyes make him seem much more human, somehow, like you can see the little person who’s in there peeking out now and again. I look forward to getting to know that little person as he develops.
By the way, I continue to enjoy non-pregnancy SO MUCH, it almost makes up for some of the screamy bits. Clearly I’m not one of those people who miss being pregnant, or enjoy it and treasure every moment. Pregnancy was a means to an end, and now we have achieved that, I’m not nostalgically looking back on those months – I’m enjoying the moments we have with Benji as he is now, and looking forward to finding out who he will grow into in the future.
