1 Month

I cannot believe Sophia is a month old already! The time seems to have flown by, but at the same time seems to have stood still.  It hasn't been the easiest month for any of us, that's for sure, but hopefully it will keep getting better.

The First 2 Weeks

Wow, what a crazy couple of weeks it's been.  You cannot imagine or prepare yourself for what being a parent is, especially of a newborn.  It's been sleepless nights, tears, out of control hormones, and this feeling that you have absolutely no idea what your doing.  It's been hard, but I love this little girl more than anything.  I love her more each day. We were lucky that my parents and sister were here to help for awhile. I don't know what we would have done without their help. It's amazing how much she's changed in just a couple of weeks too. Her face is filling out and she's definitely gaining weight with all the milk she drinks.

I plan to post my birth story if anyone is interested. It was definitely not anything like I had wanted or planned.  Actually, a lot has been this way and it's something I'm dealing with.  I think I've had a bit of postpartum depression as well.  It's all been very overwhelming. I'm glad Cary has been here to keep me sane and take care of Sophia too.  The one thing I am certain of is this little girl has been worth all of it.
