Baby Blues...

Fabulous Babe is coping with the tidal wave of hormones that has her a little off right now. I spoke with my Spiritual Train Brother today and he used a great term that I had never heard of: The Baby Blues.

It’s an apt term. Fabulous Babe had a few crying jags over the weekend and all I could do was hold her hand, wrap an arm around her and try to make things better.

Part of it is the lack of sleep we are both experiencing. We are trying to set a schedule with me taking the first shift and staying up late with Jack until she relieves me around 1:00-1:30. It’s getting better but we’re not quite set yet.

The Baby Blues are hard to watch. You find yourself worrying that they might be the start of post partum depression. Logically the odds are slim that this is the case so you then end up chastising yourself for being over reactive. In the end you just hope for the best and try to be as supportive as you can be.

I’m planning to take FB out over the next few days with Jack to try and do some “normal” things as a family. We could both use the time out of the house and according to my Spirtual Train brother it makes a difference. We’ll see.
