already! Can you believe it? I can't. People told me it would fly by, but I didn't expect time to go this fast! I'm down to 6 weeks until I'm back at work. That seems impossibly soon.
We're doing fairly well on the Equipoise front. Zoe really is an excellent baby. She only cries when she needs something...she's not one to fuss for no reason. I've learned that she has her parents' lack of patience and inherited our stubborn nature. I've also learned that she's a sweetheart. She grins in her sleep and is a snuggler. We love her so much! She had her two week appointment today and has gained back the pound she lost after birth and then some. She is in the 63rd percentile for weight and the 73rd for height. She's right where she's supposed to be. Many of you have read of our troubles in breastfeeding early on. I'm happy to report that things are going much better. Zoe feeds regularly and hasn't had formula since she got out of the Bili bed. We're so happy. Also, I'm starting to figure out her schedule and might actually be able to shower and dress before 4pm most days now. Even with the lack of sleep and all the newness and change, I have to say that I'm really enjoying motherhood. My Mom asked me the other day if it was everything I expected or if it was better. People, it's better. She was definitely worth two years of waiting.
Tomorrow Love goes back to work. He's been so amazing, such a major help to me. I'm really going to have a hard time with him being gone all day. Fortunately, my sister and her husband are flying in tomorrow afternoon so it will help to take my mind off things. I'm dreading the day when my family leaves and Love is at work and I have to do this mother-thing all on my own. I'm sure it will all work out and I'll be fine, but it is a scary thought...
I'm slowly working on the birth story. It seems like such a daunting task to write about a miracle...but it's coming, I promise. Well that's all for now. I'll be posting more pictures soon. Someday I'll find something else to write about
