What a whirlwind week. I'll do my best not to make this heretofore a "mommyhood blog", but you're going to have to humor me for a little while. For the next few months it will be hard to think about anything else. After that, though, I promise I'll write about life outside of our four walls. I'll try to, anyway.
In the meantime, guys, he's perfect. He has black hair and dark blue-gray eyes. He makes this cute little squeaky sound when he's cold (I know that I will not always think his cry is cute. But for now, the new hasn't worn off, and it still is). And he knows who I am! He knew me the first time he heard my voice.
The whole experience is really amazing.
All that I will say publicly about All Things Medical is that none of it was as bad as I expected. If you've read this site at all in the past month, you know that I was pretty apprehensive about labor. I'll talk privately in more detail (but only if you ask!), but I really didn't need to be so afraid of it. There was never a point, either in labor or surgery or post-surgery, that I felt like it was more than I could handle.
Christmas came early to the Gates' house this year.
Good night everyone.
