He’s here …
It’s taken me a while to get online to share the news with you, my dearest readers, but I’ve been BURSTING to tell you that Baby Boy is here, and he is absolutely perfect.
I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve touched a computer since Saturday afternoon — definitely a record for me. It’s a perfect example of how much my life has changed in just six days. You know those commercials — I think for Johnson & Johnson — with the tagline, “Having a baby changes everything?” I now totally know what they mean!
It feels like everything pre-baby (well, everything from before Saturday evening, when my water broke) is a dream from a long time ago. I can hardly remember what is feels like to be pregnant — good thing I have lots of posts
to remind me in detail! I can hardly remember what it feels like to not have him here with us.
He is my entire world now. I knew, in an abstract sort of way, that he would be my whole life. But actually living it is a different story. In the same way that I knew he would be a lot of work, and that I’d be tired — but actually doing the work and feeling that tiredness is so much different.
Baby Boy is crying now to be fed, so I have to run. But I have SO much to tell you, and I promise to sneak to the computer whenever I can to share the birth story (teaser: HOLYCRAPTHEPAIN), my recovery from my emergency C-section (teaser: OW) what it’s been like breastfeeding (teaser: scabs galore), and every detail of my angelic little boy (teaser: perfection).
