Home at Last!

Well I had the baby! I am home with my munchkin. We arrived back at the homestead on Sunday. I am recovering from my third c-section, so I mostly stay on the couch. Except for today, I did way too much and now I regret it. I had to take the munchkin to the doctor, which then turned into a trip to the hospital across town for lab work. Don't worry all was fine. It was just a standard check up. Here are some things I need right now:

  1. Sleep
  2. Babies who latch on better (although I am a mom who nurses long-term, this is the third child who is giving me the business getting the process started right)
  3. Sleep
  4. Another pain pill (nothing stronger than motrin, narcotics make me crazy).
  5. Friday to come, so the project we have in house can come to an end (my husband is doing most of the work, but I've been doing a smidgen from my perch on the couch.
  6. To be able to sleep in my bed again (the bed is not comfy because of my incision).
  7. My older children to understand that it is NOT business as usual around here (the trips to the library are really at the bottom of my list right now--hubby took them though).
  8. Sleep.
  9. A bucket to contain all the love and joy I feel for my new baby, and our new family.
If you want to see him, just send me an email and I'll send you a link.

  1. Congratulations! I hope you're feeling all right and I'm glad the little one is happy an healthy as well. Much love, rest, and successful latching-on to you.

    We had all three (18 month old and 2 month old twins) grand-babies spend the night this week and now I remember why babies are for the *young and the restless* LOL. I've been spoiled by having an independent teenager around the house.

    I couldn't wait to deliver those little bundles of joy home to their Momma!
