1 Week Postpartum

I can't believe it's been a week since Goldie came into the world!

Goldie so far: Nursing well (cluster feeding in the evening, sleeping for longer stretches at night)
                      Lots of poopy diapers
                      Starting to  be awake and alert more often
                      Waiting for umbilical cord to fall off

Noli (aka Little Toots) so far: Wants to hold Goldie all the time
                                              Struggling with being gentle and quiet
                                              Seems to be adjusting, although bedtime routine is taking much longer!

Mom so far: Down 14 pounds, 11 to go to pre-pregnancy weight (21 to pre-Noli weight)
                    Stitches hurt, and make it awkward to sit or stand (let alone go to the bathroom...)
                    Nervous about caring for two children by myself!

Dad so far: Good, I think, although he doesn't have mommy's skill at waking up in the middle of the night and not being miserable!

I wanted to do a weekly body/baby pic, but with no smart phone, it's hard to do that!  Maybe later tonight.

  1. Been thinking of you. I'm glad everyone is adjusting well. I would love to see a picture!
