That was before I was connected to IVs for the Pitocen drip. I was calm and ready to get the show on the road. It was around 8am, which at the time was early for me. I really like the picture because even though my birth story didn’t go as planned, it captures the happiness of the day. Wish I had straightened my hair though. ^_^
So full of personality. Every day I learn something new about you. Watching you grab Sully or play with the animals on your activity gym never gets old. You have been holding your head up since day five and hopefully that’s a symbol for how you will live your life.
At one month, I’ve learned that sleep is hard to come by but I can manage on five hours a day. That pumping can provide pumpkin with the breastmilk I so want to give her and that my efforts of trying to breastfeed are still not finished. I’m amazed at how I am not fazed by some of your diapers. My largest concern is just making sure you are clean and comfortable. I’m still healing every day. It amazes me how slow healing takes and how I can be okay one day and in pain the next. I’ve lost 26 lbs and have a belly still. But I don’t really care about that.
I cannot believe we are already at the one month milestone. Here’s to more learning for both of us every day. I love you.
