As I briefly posted last week, our baby girl came early, which I am thankful for because she weighed 8lbs 3oz! And I had a kind of miserable labor experience (no one warned me that some women get really nauseated and throw up the entire time). I won't get into all the details or complain because honestly, though I don't want to sound cliche, the end result more than overshadowed the misery. Truthfully.
So, I want to introduce you to our precious, little Claire.
The first week has been an adjustment with little sleep-plus my mom has been here helping, so after she leaves tomorrow, I am sure it will be another adjustment!
I don't intend to make this a mommy blog and probably will not post many photos of Claire, but thought ya'll might like to meet her!
I hope to get back to some form of posting here soon, since I enjoy blogging, but I'm in no rush since precious baby girl is my priority now. I hope that in weeks to come, I will figure out how to make the most of my time once I "get used" to being a mommy. If that ever happens.
I am learning that small goals help me feel better. For example, if I get some sleep and a shower-or one of those-I consider it a successful day. Everything else is bonus! So, being able to post this is a bonus today.
