I'm just stepping in to say hi and to let you all know that I'm okay and Jack's okay….

But let's be honest, I'm in the trenches in the Newborn Days.  Anyone who's had a newborn understands the Newborn Days without me elaborating!

These days are sweet and awesome and fabulous and hard and grueling and for the first 6 weeks or so, it kind of feels like you're living in a cave and it's pretty dark in the cave and you haven't showered or bathed or even washed your face or changed your clothes for days and your teeth feel like you need to shave them….forget about even brushing your hair or even thinking a coherent thought during the first 6 weeks of Newborn Days.

Can you relate?

Jack is now officially one month old as of February 3rd, and he's seriously the best gift we could ever have gotten.  I could sit and hold him all day long….

Wait, I do! I DO sit and hold him most of the day AND night too….

It fills me up and I think he and I need each other.

Now, I wrote down Jack's Birth Story because I want to post it for you all to read, but when I got finished, I realized that it was about 10 pages long!! Do I need to edit it or do I need to post it in parts???


I guess I'm just wordy.  TOO wordy!

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that we're okay and now, I'm going to snuggle up with my newborn son!

More posts and more pictures forthcoming.

Stay tuned!

Hi, I am loving my newborn days with my two week old, Abigail Rose. She is in her sling, sleeping on my chest as I type! She was born on the 20th of January. I wrote her birth story (only one page) and you can read it at my blog, if you like. Enjoy your baby and this time!
