I found these photos on Steve's phone last night and I got that achy, happy, sort of nostalgic feeling. you know the one. How is it that having a newborn brings in so much craziness- the sleep deprivation, insane hormones, engorgement (ouch! just being real here...)- but is just so dang happy and magical at the same time? I'm sure my pre-baby eyes would look at this photo and say "wow, she looks beat and completely miserable- no thanks." I look at this photo and sigh, saying I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat to have that tiny, squishy, sweet-smelling newborn asleep on my chest. curled up in her happy place. mmm.
yesterday was a little crazy- poor Steve was up every hour throwing up (flu or food poisoning...who knows?!?!) and I was busy trying to take care of him and baby girl all while obliterating every germy surface with as much bleach as one could muster (being a mom has made me just slightly germophobic....not sure if that's a real word, just humor me here.) but we're on the up and up now! Steve is back to work and Clara and I are just going to quarantine ourselves for a few days to make sure we stay healthy! I say "no thank you" to the flu!!! I figure if I have to throw up every day for six ish months for every baby I have I shouldn't have to catch the flu. Isn't that in the "life by-laws" somewhere? Also, found out last night that I won the loveTaza giveaway for Kate Spade online!! Eeep. I'm still kind of in shock! Who ever wins giveaways anyway? So, moral of the story: don't feel too sorry for me!
