You'd think that with Grace sleeping so much better, I'd be getting better sleep. But it isn't so. My body is very used to sleeping light and waking up every couple of hours. Sometimes it takes me a long time to get to sleep because I'm subconsciously waiting for her to wake up. Then when I fall asleep, I sometimes wake up for no reason. I'm pretty confident that I'll get over this though. It's just been so long since I slept well -- I have to relearn how to sleep. Who would've thought?
Although I'm still a bit on the tired side, I'm happy about Grace's improvements and am feeling good in general. I'm starting to feel the desire to take back just a teensy weensy bit of my life. Grace will always have 95% of my focus, but I've been feeling the itch to do things like dry and style my hair, exercise, have a coffee out, stuff like that. I think this is actually a good sign that I'm adjusting to motherhood.
I can't believe October is almost done. Time is really flying, just like people told me it would. Grace will be 10 months soon...wow.
