One Month In

It's been a little over four weeks this little person has been here. In that time:
  • We've been cuddling
  • We've been kissing baby head and cheeks
  • We are stunned by how much bigger Dan suddenly seems
  • We're thankful that Caleb and I were able to leave the hospital after 24 hours
  • We are rediscovering the joys (and occasional trials) of breastfeeding
  • My mom came for a few days and let me nap.
  • Toby's mom came for a week and let me nap. 
  • Toby's dad came for a week and let me nap.
  • Dan started creeping out of his room during nap time, waking me up from my naps.
  • Abi turned 10.
  • We went to the DC zoo.
  • I turned 35.
  • We went to Ladew Gardens
  • We went out to eat - a lot.

We are now learning the new normal. That tends to mean lots of tweaking, rather than all change. I am grateful for the systems and schedules I put in place before Caleb's arrival, but now it's time to adjust them to accommodate a nursing infant and sleepy mommy. I have a list of projects as long as my arm, but happy to tackle them when I'm able - life is definitely taking a slower pace. I'll endeavor to keep interested parties (all 3 of them) up to date!
 I'm looking forward to re-entering the blog-world, but don't be surprised if it resembles more of an elderly shuffle than a full-on run...
