Hello! Greetings from Newborn Land! I am typing this with my little one snuggled in my Sleepy Wrap (LOVE this product!) trying to multi-task through minor sleep deprivation. Please excuse me if this post is short, but I wanted to share some pictures of our new little bundle of joy!
Morgan was born on July 2nd, 2009 at 8:47am, weighing in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and 20 inches long. She is healthy and all went great. I have been recovering from the c-section and each day gets a little better.
It has been a period of tremendous joy, excitement and exhaustion! We are slowly adjusting to the endless hours of nursing, rocking and trying to remember to eat. I remember before Emma was born moms would tell me how it was hard to find time to fit in a shower in the early days. I always thought people were being dramatic, as I couldn’t fathom how it could be that hard to find the time to shower. Then I had a newborn and I totally GOT IT!
So, here I am writing this at 2pm in my pajamas, NOT showered and I have not had lunch! The nice thing is that I know that someday I will shower and eat again, so I am trying to enjoy this period of time when they are so little and can snuggle up against you and sleep curled up like a little love bug.
More to come from our Adventures in Newborn Land, in the meantime, I hope everyone is having a great summer!
If you have any fun activities or events or summer ideas to share with me, please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
