Oh friends!! How I miss blogging and connecting with you all. Baby girl is 12 days old and right now I feel like we are still in survival mode. Reality has sunk in and this mom thing is sure hard some days but so rewarding! I love looking at her sweet little face as she wails for the third hour in a row. Or a few nights ago when all she needed was her momma. But it is so not easy. Soon I hope to share with you all little Clara’s birth story (because it’s awesome!!) but I’m waiting until I have the birth photos so you can get the full picture. So stay tuned for that!!
But in the meantime I hang out on the couch knowing this too shall pass. I now have mastitis on top of a staph infection I already had. Little girl dropped over 14% in her first three days of life and now has only gained 2 ounces back. We are on a nursing/pumping/formula schedule every two hours. Difficult but so worth it!! I don’t say this for you to feel sorry for us, but it’s just reality. And one day I will want to remember these days. I will look back and laugh at how exhausted we were.
So until then, come share with us what you’ve been up to! Since I haven’t had much time lately for DIY, I need to live vicariously through you all.
