I’ve been at a total loss for how to sum up the last two weeks. Like, I try to start typing but nothing sticks on the screen. I think that a) I’m really emotional b) I’m not sure words can express how I feel and c) we have a baby, WHAT?! (And thank you for all of the sweet congratulations!) 

I can’t believe that she’s been part of our life for two weeks and at the same time, I can’t believe that it’s only been two weeks.


What a ride life with a newborn is. What they say is true: your heart explodes with love you didn’t even know was possible, all you want to do is stare at the most-precious thing you’ve ever laid eyes on….and of course, sleep is severely lacking. (Though I will say that I don’t at all mind waking up to look at her sweet face in the middle of the night.)


We’re settling into a routine which sometimes means all we’ve done before noon is eat (mostly her) and after a somewhat rough start with breastfeeding (she lost too much weight, my milk wasn’t in yet and we had to supplement with formula for about a day) we’ve really hit our stride and it’s getting easier each time. (Side note: I really expected breast feeding to be easy, but we both had a lot to learn. AND, a visit from a lactation specialist was priceless.)


Simply put, it’s been amazing. Before she came along, I thought we would bring her into our world. But it turns out she brought us into hers.
