Shasta is two weeks old today! We’ve had a really good week overall. Nuni went back to work on Monday, which was just fine. Every day was a little bit different – but I quickly learned that naps are super valuable, and I tried to have one in the morning or the afternoon, depending on what the little man was up to. We went to church together for the first time, and also to the grocery store! It’s amazing how much more preparation it takes to go somewhere! I’m sure we’ll get used to it though.
He’s actually sleeping really well… last night he slept for five hours straight! Amazing! Generally he wakes up every three-four hours in the night which I don’t think is that bad at all. He sleeps on and off through the day, it’s just finding the right moment to lie down at the same time, hoping he won’t wake up!
I think I experienced some form of baby blues during the beginning of the week, but some extra sleep and chats with wonderful friends fixed it pretty quick. I feel much better now, and am beginning to feel more myself… giving birth really does take a toll on your body and soul(hormones). I am trying not to be too self-critical about my body – it would be so nice if everything just popped back into place, and I was back to my normal self. Fortunately my feet are no longer monster-feet(for about a week it looked as if I was turning into Princess Fiona… the green one) and I no longer look pregnant(as two lovely people had pointed out to me), just have a little ponch. Anyways, the main thing is that I am healthy, feeling very good physically, my incision is healing nicely… I have to focus on these blessings! It’s amazing how much easier it is to focus on the negative things…
But enough about me, here are my favourite pictures from the week!
See you next week! 🙂
