One week(ish) in...

Wow.  I feel like there is so much to say that I don't know where to even begin.  Being a parent has been totally surreal so far.  I think Kyle is better at this gig than I am--at the very least he's much more chill about everything than I am.  Of course I think that may have always been the case in pretty much every situation.  

Iris pretty much has two modes: sleeping and eating.  She does them both a lot and for long stretches of time.  So the sleeping part is great, although a little disconcerting when we're rounding out on hour four of totally zonked out kid (we wake her to eat, but I bet if we didn't she'd sleep for much longer).  The eating thing is not as neat.  Nursing for 3+ hours straight is not my kind of fun.  

I'm healing from the surgery quite well.  I am still taking some pain meds though so my thinking skills are pretty curtailed still.  I'll be back with more info when I can think a little more clearly.

Oh and Patty, she was born at 5:53 pm.

  1. YAY! I am so glad you are doing so well and she is giving you such an easy time! Paul is way better than me at it to...I just try to consider myself lucky.
