Whew! Well, it’s been a while! But anyone who’s had a baby will easily excuse my absence from blogging, because, well… a BABY! Having a baby doesn’t leave you a lot of time for things like blogs! But I figured today is The Day that I Must Update The Blog because otherwise it will get longer and longer and we’ll have more and more pictures and it will never get done. 🙂
So, Anna is finally here! Contractions started the morning of Wednesday, October 29th and she was born on Friday the 31st at 3:30 ish in the afternoon (not sure of the exact time..). So it was a long process for me! I progressed very slowly, and verrry painfully, so I’ll spare you the details, but we’re very happy to finally have Anna here!
Being a mom is the most exhausting but most enjoyable thing in the world! As Anna is our first, everything is a challenge because it’s new to us! Figuring out feeding, diapering (we’re cloth diapering which is an extra bit of a challenge!), sleeping, how to get from here to there (we don’t have a car! So we put her car seat in a taxi for places we can’t walk and take her stroller or the Ergo if we need to walk somewhere), etc., etc. We are slowly figuring out what her likes and dislikes are, how to comfort her, etc. etc. Lots of learning going on here! But we’re so in love with her! So I’ll finish up here by sharing some photos of her first couple of weeks.
Note – she stopped liking the swaddle after about two days. Hrmph.
There you go! I’m immensely proud that I managed to upload all these and it only took a few hours in between feedings and fussy baby comforting! 😀
