Two Weeks

It's been two weeks since baby was born-- two weeks that have flown by in a blur of late nights, soft skin, downy hair and scented baths.

He has been such a dreamy, mild boy. We've waited with dread for the signs of painful reflux that have afflicted each of my other boys, but his have been few and far between. At first I was hesitant to acknowledge our good fortune {didn't want to jinx it} but now I find myself saying things like, "He sleeps! He smiles! He lays on a blanket and kicks!" with the same degree of awe one would reserve for statements like, "Unicorns are real! They can heal you with a touch of their horn!"

I had no idea babies could be like this. He's so perfect, it's surreal.

In other news, I'm thrilled to have ankles once more; I've been seriously tempted to send the older kids to public school until I have the energy to start up homeschooling again; Little Miss C is planning her birthday party with her Nana; and all the fall catalogues have me excited to wear real clothes sometime soon.

Life is good. :)

He is so adorably delicious. What a delight to read this post and know that all is going well with this sweet new boy and his mommy. Happy tired days Melancholy but ones to be treasured and enjoyed. Life is good, you are absolutely right.

He looks like he's got an extra dose of wisdom. Seriously a beautiful boy. I'm so glad he's healthy and you are enjoying him so much! Last night before bed I determined to email you this morning and tell you that I hope the joy of the early weeks is far outweighing the hard parts (it always does outweigh them, but sometimes not by a lot). So glad it sounds like it is!
