So. I'm learning new skills as a new mother.

How to get 8 hours of sleep 2 hours at a time.
How to sleep without your husband in the bed, because he can't sleep through the baby crying and so has moved into the living room.
How to do household chores one-handed while the other hand is holding the baby on your shoulder because she won't sleep anywhere else.

I'm loving it though... especially the morning feeding, when I get her out of the bassinet and feed her in bed, then we doze back off for a few hours... It's been cold here again, and so her little hands are like icicles when she wakes up... but when she sleeps right up next to me she stays warmer...
