Home, Sweet Home

We've been home now for almost two weeks and it is so wonderful to have little B in our home.  Our first week home, R was also off of work and it was just the best possible week (despite the lack of sleep and spending a lot of time worrying during the night if she had stopped breathing).  We didn't do much, but we were able to just hang out as a family and spend time together and take B for walks. We treated ourselves to a trip to our favorite brewery, we went out for oysters (I've been craving them for months), and we had friends and family visit (and bring meals - amazing).

I have a lot to learn as far as parenting goes, but I have never loved someone in such an all-encompassing way.  Wow, is it overwhelming.  I'll be home with B for 12 weeks and it already feels like it will be much too short.


Yup, I am already one of those moms who dresses her child like an animal.  I cannot get enough of this hat.  We go for walks each day and she rides in the Ergo with the infant insert and all you can see of her are the tiny bunny ears that poke out the top.

On a completely separate topic, I saw this really cool infographic about pregnancy and the development of a fetus that is worth checking out.

Sorry for the seriously random post.  I should be sleeping and then I might be able to write a more coherent post!

  1. so wonderful! Motherhood *is* random. Enjoy every minute with your little B! That graphic is cool. Every time I look at AJ I am reminded what a miracle life is. And I kind of live the miracle over again every time I read a blog. :-)

    1. Right? I can't believe I ever took pregnancy for granted. It is a miracle every time a baby is born healthy and safely. You are so right about motherhood being random, too. Whenever people ask me what we do during the day, words escape me. Change diapers, feed, walk, rock? Occasionally sneak in a chore here or there?

    1. I was on the hat company's website today contemplating other animal hats. A baby needs more than one, right?

    1. I do love the hat! It is the only one we have that fits her aside from the hospital hat, too, so it is getting a lot of use.

  4. Cutest bunny ear hat on and equally adorable baby. 12weeks won't be enough but all the time in the world won't be enough either. Enjoy it, it's fleeting

    1. Heidi, you are so right. Whatever amount of time I had wouldn't be enough. Going back to work is going to be tough...

    1. Thanks, Krystal. I love the hat, too (if you are interested it is from a company called Blueberry Hill and they appear to make MANY cute hats: http://theblueberryhill.bigcartel.com).
