It's incredibly hard to get anything done when you have a baby! There's lots of things that go by the wayside until there's a moment of calm- where the baby is fed and changed, the parents have had a decent amount of sleep (1 or 2 hours?- yeah that's plenty), we've eaten something to nourish our bodies, the kitchen is clean (we can see at least some of the counter top), AND it isn't time to start the whole process over again. Here's that moment. I thought about laying on the couch and blankly staring at the TV but, then I thought better of it and wanted to post a little something here.
I don't think I have time to go too deep into the story yet. I might start and then get called away by my little sugar plum. So, I will write what I can...
Life with Cooper is an adventure. Bryan and I have been students of baby care 101 all week long. Each day brings new challenges, new successes, and new love. By far, the first day home from the hospital was the hardest. I still was recovering from delivery pretty seriously and we had to learn how to take care of our newborn while sleep deprived and hormone-crazy (me). Every day we seem to get the hang of parenting a little more. I have no idea how any woman can do this job on her own- especially in the first week. I am the luckiest woman in the world to have a husband that takes care of the baby just as much as I do. He's a natural- Cooper loves being held by his Daddy. And how many women can say that their husband has changed just as many diapers as they have- possibly more? I can! Yay! Bryan is my rock- in this situation as in any other. Holding my hand and gently reassuring me as a new mother.
There's no way I can describe how much we love this little guy. He's just an amazing little thing- his perfect little body, his curious eyes, his flailing hands, his little bird-mouth (ever searching for food, fingers), his sweet yawns and coos. It's enough to just sit and hold him. I miss him when I'm napping. I love him so much. So, without further ado, here's some more photos of our son. Enjoy!
