The last 4 weeks have been a complete whirlwind, and I am still delirious from the lack of sleep and emotionally exhausted from the difficulties breastfeeding. But one look at my little man makes it all worth it. Here's a few pics:

I never understood why parents no longer had any time. But now I know. When you nurse every 2-3 hours, and it takes about 45-60 minutes to nurse, you only have about 1-2 hours in between feedings to get anything done, including sleep. And when the longest you've slept at any given time is 1-3 hours for weeks and weeks... well, I'm sure you can imagine the deliriousness. But enough complaining... I mean, look at that precious face! I can't thank my family and friends enough for all the help we've received: meals cooked, errands run, tips given, house cleaned. We are truly blessed to have such a loving community. I am indeed a happy lady.
