Congrats! I've also been thinking about you and your lack of recent posts! Did you ever go to Peru?

How was labor and delivery? How big was Logan? Those pictures are great!


On another note, did anyone have implantion bleeding that was like a very light period? I'm having more than spotting but not enough to bleed through a liner every few hours? I've never had a period like this before

Oh, Karen, he's perfect! Congratulations! I am so glad you're both doing well!

My child is somehow 10 months old. How? HOW?!


She is free-standing a little now but so far has zero interest in walking. Perfect. Let's keep it that way for awhile.

Lucy may or may not like him because Zach put a treat on his forehead.

I was just worrying/wondering how you were doing yesterday. It's like you read my mind.

How is Miss Lucy doing with Logan?
I aim to please Lucy is ambivalent towards the baby, which is awesome. She has become SUPER clingy towards adults though, desperate for attention. It kind of breaks my heart, because I just want to snuggle her all the time but my hands are generally full She's being really good though.

Etsy is a wealth of goofy newborn dress up clothes. Thank goodness I cut myself off.

Yes! Peru was INCREDIBLE. Everyone should go. By far one of the best vacations of my life. We saw CAPYBARAS! And caymen, and macaws, and monkeys, and chinchillas, and hiked around Machu Picchu and it was just amazing. So glad we went.

L&D was great. DC was getting a major, major snow storm Sunday night into Monday, so of course my water broke Sunday night. We rushed to the hospital as it was just starting to freezing rain, so thankfully we beat the worst of it and spent the storm snowed in where we needed to be. (Side note: Nurses told us that storms often cause people to go into labor...odd).

Contractions never really started on their own (just the weak ones I'd been having for weeks), so they had me walk stairs for a couple hours to try to get things going. The sorest part of my body the next day was my legs! When contractions still didn't ramp up, they put me on pitocin around 11 pm, and I got my epidural around 2 am. It blocked contractions and made my right leg a limp noodle. Things progressed nicely, and by 11:30 am they had me push--15-20 minutes later, along came baby! 5 lbs 9 oz, 19 inches long (And ohhhhhhh Lordy, I felt ALL of the crowning and pushing and delivery!)

Somehow the nurses got it mixed up that I didn't want immediate skin to skin (I really just wanted them to clean him up a little first!) and they tried to put him on my chest right away. I squealed and put up my hands and said, "NO NO, EW, GROSS!" so now that's in the baby book as the first thing I said about him. Oops. The NICU team evaluated him and handed him back to me, and other than needing heat lamps for a few hours he stayed with us the whole time in recovery. They kept us an extra day because he was having trouble eating, but he's been doing well once we figured out the bottle. The pediatrician said he was in the 13th percentile for weight, and Zach and I did a little happy dance. With his scrawny chicken parents and being 5 weeks early, 13th percentile is a major win!

Sleep deprived and frazzled, but otherwise pretty good!

YES! I liken him to a hamster--I just feed/change him, gently pet him with 1 finger so I don't break him, and he's nocturnal. (He actually sleeps pretty well, but still). Glad your man has caught up!
