To all the doctors and Internet posters who say that babies sleep 16-20 hours a day: STOP deluding poor new parents! It’s a lie! And the whole “It’ll be OK just sleep when the baby sleeps” mantra is BS! For example, right now it’s past noon and Evie has been awake (or close to it) since 2AM. Sure she fades out here or there, but deep sleep sessions are few and far between! Not that I’m complaining – yesterday Evie and I went for a very long walk and other than that my world revolves around the bedroom and kitchen. Poor daddy Packineau has to go to work and appear functional. But, he gets to drink coffee… I guess it’s all about trade-offs. I’ll take Evie-bean in exchange for sleep + sanity any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Speaking of Sunday, Evie will be FOUR WEEKS OLD this Sunday! Wow!
