I'm going through a tough phase at the moment. The first few days at home were so exciting and I was running on adrenaline. I had no problem being deliriously happy and relatively stress free. The last few days, not so much.
I think I've broken down and cried 3 or 4 times today. Over small, inconsequential things. What has me in this state is that Violet has been more fussy than I'm use to, and I find myself quickly becoming overwhelmed when I can't figure out why she is crying. I know this is normal...but it still takes a toll on your emotions. I'm trying very hard to remember that things will get better, the crying will eventually end, and someday we'll be able to sleep better. I'm not depressed, but just a little overwhelmed.
My husband has been my life saver. He has been stepping in and taking over when I feel like I can't cope with my emotions and a fussy baby. He was up with Violet for several hours straight last night and let me sleep until, finally, he was at his breaking point as well. Thank God for him. I couldn't do this alone.
