1 - Teresa Marie's birth story is now up. You can check it out below this post, or click here. Though by clicking you will no longer be able to hear this funky, groovy, perfect song. Thank you, Mr. Stevie Wonder, for writing this piece of music.
2 - Cluster feeding is happening. Milk is coming in. I am sore. She won't nap. Which means I can't nap.
3 - I listened to Johnny Cash while laboring with Teresa. I did that with Bennet's birth, too, and it's so helpful. Highly recommend it.
4 - How 'bout some pictures?
5 - Bennet LOVES Baby Resa, as he calls her. LOVES her. As soon as he saw her he asked to hold her, and when he did he immediately put his cheek to hers, kissed her, patted her head, commented on how soft her hair was, and then - waving his hand around her - he asked, "Where baby come from?"
6 - Lydia is very interested in how I feed Teresa. When we first came home from the hospital she asked if she could feed Teresa some babyfood. I explained she would have to eat milk from my breast. Lydia asked, "How will she do that? With hoses?"
7 - James doesn't know what to think of our newborn but he's pretty ticked that I can't pick him up right now nor hold him while she's nursing. Poor little boy.
Alright, friends. Thanks for all the well wishes, love, congrats, prayers, and general nice things you've said. We appreciate it! And now it's time to nurse! Have a fun weekend, and check out conversiondiary.com for more quick takes!
