I’ve been wanting to post, really, I have. Part of the problem is that I don’t quite have the time to do it. Sadie is a cuddle bug who very rarely is okay with not being held. I can do one-handed things on the computer while I hold her, but typing a post is pretty much out. The other problem is that I’ve got cold feet. I want to write about how recovering from a c-section I didn’t see coming sucks big time. I want to write more about how horrible the experience itself was (for my own emotional-processing sort of reasons, not to scare anybody). I want to write about how I love Sadie but it’s sometimes hard to be so “on-demand” all the time. I want to write about how Trevor is outstanding and how I can’t fathom doing this without him and how glad I am that we made a baby together. I just don’t have the emotional energy to do it.
So here’s some light stuff:
Sadie was two weeks old yesterday. We went back to the doctor’s office for a weigh-in, and she’s up to 9 pounds, 1.6 ounces. So it looks like our breastfeeding efforts are going to good (chunky) use. She’s getting much better at diaper changing time and even outfit changing time. Even with slow-poke mom. I swear, I must be the world’s slowest diaper changer. Then again, I’ve never really been known to be fast at much. I’ve been doing really poorly at taking lots of pictures of her, so I don’t have one of her at two weeks. Oh well. I do have some spectacular pictures to share taken by my friends Katie and Corrinne. I’ve been meaning to post these, but, as I said, I’ve been busy and tired and tied up. Here are just a few favorites.
