Today was my due date, but since my little princess decided to come a bit early, I get to cuddle my four day-old daughter instead of lugging about a big belly 😉
I still can’t believe that we are now a family of two!
Things have been going well with Charles so far. He likes to help out with the baby and has asked to hold her a few times. We are making sure to give him a lot of attention and he seems happy about everything.
Breastfeeding is going really well; she’s a champ nurser.
These days, Charles is obsessed with the Cars movie (Batman is still an obsession too, by the way).
It’s pretty hot and really humid around the house. It’s hard to know how to dress my little girl given that she needs to be swaddled to sleep.
I’m planning on posting Amélie’s birth story sometime in the next few days. Charles’ will surely follow afterwards. That’ll be two new birth stories to add to my Many Faces of Childbirth page. I’m still looking for more birth stories so If anyone wants to share their own story, feel free to check out this post for the details.
I was able to take care of a whole bunch of appointments for myself, Charles and Amélie this morning.
There are some evenings where Charles transforms from a sweet little toddler to major-tantrum-meltdown mode when it’s time for his bath and I have no idea why. Today was one of those days…
Wow, it took me a lot of time to write up these random thoughts! I started this post this morning and am just finishing it now.
