Wow - what a wild ride this has been...
I haven't even had time to check my email since before we went to the hospital!
My world has changed - and I'm loving it. My doctor actually allowed me to come home Thursday afternoon since I was up and around and doing well...so less than 48 hours after surgery, our little family was in our own home at last :)
I don't think I can fully express how much we love this little guy - he's such a content baby and hubs and I are completely and utterly in love...not only with him, but with each other as well. Hubs is AMAZING - I swear, it's like he was born for this daddy role. He has jumped in with both feet and seems to be enjoying every moment...even the dirty diapers. I can't explain how awesome it is to see the person you love most in the world, take such loving care of the OTHER person you love most in the world. Gives me a shiver every time I think about it...and I doubt I will ever get tired of watching the two of them together.
Man, this motherhood stuff needs to come with a lifetime supply of kleenex because it's such an emotional roller coaster!
We had a rough first night home - a really rough night. But yesterday, we actually started to feel like we're figuring this kid out, and last night was AWESOME....we both got 7 hours of sleep believe it or not! I'm kinda thinking that's unusual for our second night with a newborn - but I'll take it. I'm interested to see how tonight goes.
Thank you to Alison for doing a blog update for me - it was really great to come home and read it and see everyone's comments. Thanks everyone for all the support and well wishes. So far, this has been an amazing experience - and I will post our birth story soon, I'm still trying to wrap my head around everything that happened...and have been unexpectedly emotional about it all.
I can't believe we have a son!
*oh yes, and I'll post some scrumptious baby pics as soon as I can :)
