Wow, I've been swept away by motherhood.
But so worth it.
Baby girl has grown and continues to grow so well. She is already a pound heavier than she was at birth, and an inch longer. And she is only two and half weeks old!! The power of breast milk!!!!
I'm so proud of her!!!!
Our pediatrician is really happy with her progress and loves her to death.. which is so fab. I really like him. He is personable and great with her and understanding of how nervous and freaked out new parents can be. He is kind hearted and appreciates our daughter like we do. I wanted my pediatrician to be similiar or have much of the same values and views as T. Berry Brazelton....(my hero) and he does. woo hoo!!!
There is so much to say, about the whole birth exprience.. and what has happened since then.
Ate' went back to work this past monday... he was a bit glad to get back. Nights were pretty long around here for those two weeks.
She is such a fabulous being.. so well tempered. She's not a constant screamer... despite the fact that she has had tummy troubles.. she will scream sometimes, but not continuously. She calms herself fairly well and is such a happy baby. her little face changes everyday... she is growing so fast. I have to take pics every day.. she changes overnight.
I am sleeping more and sleeping when she sleeps... which is all the time. But, most days it is really hard because when i have gotten done nursing her, and I lay her down next to me.... all I want to do is stare at that beautiful face... that little face that we created... the perfect little being. She is just so perfect. I can't get over it. She's a snuggler, which is nice. Not suprising, but nice.
I do nothing but nurse her and carry her around all day. Which isn't conducive to getting anything else done. She's a momma's girl, which is nice.. and normal.. and not something I will complain about. i will learn to get over the urge to clean my increasingly messy house and just let things be as they are. The time I have with her now... will never happen again.. she will only be at these stages once. And she is changing so fast. I dont' want to miss anything.
I am able to write this now because Ate' is watching little miss and I have some alone time... time I should be using to get an essay done that is due at the publishers in two days.
But I have baby brain and it is too soft to form much coherent thoughts.
I had to send pics to the relatives and such other important people in her life.. so that took up some time.
Now Im ready to go hold my daughter again...
well, maybe I'll take a shower first.
Ok, I will post more later. Promise. It may be a few days... but I will get it done.
be well, MBB
