I cannot believe we have had a cute little newborn for 11 days now. It is still surreal to us that he is ours, that we created him and that he grew inside me for almost 10 months!
Every day/night seems to get easier and easier, and I honestly can say that I could not imagine our life without Ethan. He seems to just fit right in.
He had his first doctor's appointment yesterday and passed with flying colours. He gained a 3/4 lbs since last Wednesday, so he is definitely getting enough food. He has completely recovered from last weeks mishap and he is starting to nurse as well, which I am so delighted about. I will do anything for our baby, even if that means pumping 24 hours around the clock, every 2-3 hours, but if I can get a couple nursing sessions in there, it would just make life a little bit easier!
I will try to update weekly. It depends on when I can get to the computer for any length of time. Usually when he naps I am either pumping, catching up on sleep, showering or tidying up. Currently Grandma Dufour is here so I am able to do a few things, including this!
I am also considering making this blog private, so when I do decide to do that, I will put a post up a week before so it is known that you have to sign up to receive updates.
Time to feed the peanut!
