Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Yeah, I suck. It's been a week.

Here's Rifle and "his" baby. He has to know where she is at all times. All hell breaks loose if she cries too long. He rushes to us and whines as if to say "CLEARLY, you are not doing your job. Would you handle this NOW!"

Apple and punkin picking, kisses from big sister and a big smile from daddy.

Dude, the FAN

Natalie smiled for real today. First real smiles. At the ceiling fan. She's been fascinated with it since the day we came home. It's her friend. She loves her fan...

Catherine, I got the most amazing gift today. The cutest little sweater and matching hat. Just adorable. And the smelly bath stuff....mmmm. Such a great friend. Thank you.

Pictures coming soon.

Hi! Remember me?

Yeah, you might not, it's been forever. Sorry. Things have been nutty. I am still working on how having a newborn affects our "normal" schedule. Turns out it's a big deal just getting out the door. Thankfully, she's a good sleeper. As in, she sleeps quite a lot. I change her, feed her and she sleeps. Rinse, repeat.

I've had a slight setback with my incision. I woke up for our 2:30 am feed on Friday morning to find my PJ bottoms soaked in the front. Bleary-eyed, I wandered to the bathroom and realized I was soaked with yellow goo. Nice, huh? I proceeded to leak said yellow goo the rest of the morning and when I called the doc, was told to get my ass to their office...stat (ha!).

Turns out I have a massive infection. So far it's only in the top (read:fat) layer. But, it's nasty. They mashed and pushed on it and drained what they could. Oh, and they opened more of the incision to let it drain. They also stuck a long q-tip insode so they could get a culture. That was all fun. NOT! Hurt like hell.

I didn't feel too bad until I got home that night. At which time, I felt like I got hit by a truck. For the next two days. I am just today feeling sort of human, but still pretty damn sore. My middle feels like my section was yesterday instead of two weeks ago. Good times.

So, pardon my lag in posts. I swear I had a good excuse.
