I had my first Mom of Two Initiation last night. Both of my kids up, at the same time, refusing to sleep. It was so super fun. Thank God for my husband, seriously. I am a zombie mom today, and I am still so grateful Declan is home from work.
Nevertheless, that was (and still is) bound to happen. I better get used to it.
Did you see I posted all three parts to Lucy's birth story last night? I know, posting at night is suicide---but please make sure if you're interested that you read it. Also--I really, really like seeing your comments about it. I just feel like--if you are reading the details of my vagina, you could at least let me know you did? Too much to ask? Okay. :)
And after reading the birth story, if I traumatized you from ever wanting children...just remember, this is the light at the end of the tunnel. A squishy newborn.
It truly is all worth it. Sleepless nights. The spit up. The billion and one diapers you have to change just after swaddling your baby for the millionth time. Their sweet, adorable faces--these little people. They really are worth it.
(all photos taken when she was 4days old, at home, in my living room by me--I hope to get a few more newborn photos, you know, before she grows up)
