Time flies

I can't believe it's already been almost two weeks since Eggbert was born. Time really flies. We haven't slept in days, but these have still been the happiest days of my life. Being a mom is absolutely wonderful. Words fail me.

I don't have time to post a real update, but just wanted to check in and say that we're still alive, still doing great, and that Eggbert is an absolute joy. She is a creature of many moods, including hungry, clingy, whiny, chipper, and sleepy. Well, I guess that's not so many moods, but given that you never know which you're going to get in the next minute, it feels like a lot. She keeps us on our toes, never lets us sleep, and enchants us anew with every passing moment. I can't imagine how I lived without her. I remember that living without her pretty much sucked, though.

I'll try to post the birth story in the next couple of days. Really.

And just imagine that each day is full of surprises (most of them good) and that physically, it does get a lot easier as time goes by.

I'm so glad you're enjoying your little Eggbert. How's she growing?

So glad all is well, Sara.

It sounds like the sleep deprivation is totally worth it, and that long-awaited motherhood suits you to a T!

I'm just so very happy for you all!

Thank you for keeping us updated. The first few weeks are very demanding.I hope you are recovering well form the birth ordeal and that you will get some sleep soon!

Good to hear you're doing well together!

I've been working on a new post for 2 weeks. Every morning I tell myself I'll finish it that day!
