Things are starting to get a little easier. We almost have a daily routine (though it's only a semi-established routine).
Lately Ayla and I have been sleeping in until around 11 (she keeps us up until almost 3 lately), we get up, get changed, cleaned, and dressed, have some breakfast, and Ayla promptly goes back to sleep! This is when I get to rush around the house like a crazy person trying to tidy up, shower, throw something in the crock pot for dinner, get laundry going, pump, get something to eat for myself, etc.
By the time any of that (usually only bits and pieces) gets done she is awake and wide-eyed, looking for lunch!
I discovered the greatest thing on XBOX Live... Last.FM! I can choose stations to listen to. Ayla and I prefer the Death Cab For Cutie station. It has all of our favorites, such as Death Cab, The Postal Service, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Modest Mouse, Minus the Bear, Mirah, Cursive, The Format, Brand New, Ben Kweller, Vampire Weekend, and soooo many more!
I honestly believe that Ayla recognizes music that I frequently listened to while I was pregnant with her. Mainly Rilo Kiley and Ben Kweller. I listened to them the most towards the end of my pregnancy and there are a few songs that I would put on repeat that seem to soothe her when nothing else can! ESPECIALLY the songs "With Arms Outstretched", "A Man, Then Me, Then Jim.", and "More Adventurous" by Rilo Kiley. We love Rilo Kiley. :)
