How can someone so small take up so much of your time?

It’s amazing.  He’s amazing.  For the first two weeks after we brought him home I felt as though I had been hit by a bus.  Every minute was spent taking care of him or helping my wife recover.  If I had a minute to rest, I usually fell asleep.  So here we were, tired as can be and all of this from someone 7lbs 6oz and 20″ long.  And on top of that he hardly even moves and sleeps a lot.  But he does require a lifestyle change on our part.  First, we’ve lost any type of sleep schedule we had.  He’ll be up until 11:30, then up again at 1:30 and 4:30.  Sometimes he’ll be up for an hour with us trying to rock him to sleep.   …and I thought I didn’t get much sleep before that…
