Well you got a good sleeper!! Lucky you! My baby, I think she was about 6 days old, actually stayed awake for 10 hours, I phoned the hospital sobbing not knowing what to do!!
I don't think it gets real for a while, despite all the chaos, you can gaze into that little face and the world vanishes and its the most magical experience ever. That can never feel anything but special.
I did struggle a bit at first, establishing breast feeding was very hard work, but I was a stubborn madam and I am so glad I was, we are still enjoying feeding now. My daughter is a whirlwind of chaos, a million miles an hour, every hour she is awake, which is most of them! She walked at 9.5 months, just as we put up the Christmas tree! She is just learning some words now, and got the important ones down, like "duck, shoes, waffles" *laughs* 518 days ago
