With the weekend…. nooooo.
Seriously noooooo. There quality of life on weekends (aka having Ryohei around to help out) and weekdays is so different. Although I am absolutely exhausted after a 5:30 am wake up call from my little “angel” and going to bed soon I think – today has been fairly good.
We went to Ryohei’s grandmothers today and as per the course Sakura sort of freaked out. This might sound weird… but she doesn’t seem to like old people. Maybe its just their actions towards her or something but whenever her great-grandma or any other nosy old lady at the supermarket or starbucks etc.. approches her she starts to freak out. Not so much with younger people, she seemed to like my SIL a fair bit and she tolerated a few younger people holding her. My baby has a built in Ba-chan sensor… its interesting.
Anyways – SIL and MIL showed up with baby Iroha who seems to have taken over where Sakura left up and was crying most of the time they were there. Just like Sakura was a month ago… Sakura calmed down by the point they showed up and was smiling and somewhat in a good mood so I told SIL the crying all the time with no stopping will eventually pass. Sakura’s crying has also changed – I can tolerate it a lot better than when she was only a few weeks old… there is something incredibly desperate about a newborns cry and now at 2 months she just sounds pissed off when shes angry but not like shes going to die.. (which was what it seemed like in the beginning)
Anyways after escaping from the deep dark inaka with GMIL, MIL, and SIL (too many female Japanese relatives… cry) we went shopping at a huge super market one town away from Nagaoka and (small victory) I found Nutella there!! I had been casually looking for it during my shopping in Nagaoka and couldn’t find it so I was very excited to see it! Small victories. I am going to try my hand at making a lasagna tomorrow as well from a recipe that Lulu and Nay left me when they came up after Sakura was just born. I’ve NEVER made lasagna before so hopefully it will turn out well!!
Tomorrow we dont have any plans except cleaning and lazing around the house. It’ll be my last free time with Ryohei for about two weeks since he will be working over time the next two weeks including all three days of the three day weekend. I think I am going to be exhausted as it means pretty much no help with Sakura except for maybe 30 mins in the morning before he leaves…
Hopefully towards the end of the month we will have a bit more family time. Oh and just so I remember… Sakura pooped on Ryohei in the bath today. It was really funny.. we had just started bathing her when we saw these little bubbles popping up and then this explosion of yellow floating around the tub. It was pretty gross – I tried getting her out but she screamed bloody murder so she we just went along with the bath. She was sitting on Ryoheis lap so she pooped all in this tummy hair… I think he was incredibly disturbed but I couldn’t help laughing.
Anyways signing off with a picture of Sakura and Iroha from this afternoon… it almost likes like they are having a conversation but Sakura looks pissed!!
