Week 2...and 3

Man the weeks are flying. NJhusband's paternity leave is almost up and I get a little weepy when I think of him going back to work. My parents are here to help me the next 3 weeks until I get fully cleared by my doctor to care for E by myself, but I have liked our time together (and his HUGE HELP) on a daily basis. 

E had his newborn photo shoot this week and I think the photographer got some super cute shots. I can't wait to see them. She posted this teaser on her facebook page already:

The hat...I'm dying.

Recovery wise I'm doing better every day, but I'm still frustrated by my limitations sometimes. I find it hard to hold him for long periods of time, especially when he's crying and flailing a lot. A few swift kicks to my incision/stomach have sent me back to bed with my feet up a few times. It's a hard pill to swallow when you can't be the one to comfort your own child. 

E is already growing out of his newborn clothes and I can't believe it. I want him to stay so innocent and little and precious for just a bit longer. Also, thank GOODNESS for having a cousin a year older...Hello hand-me-downs! I have to buy him hardly any clothes which is great if he's only going to fit in them for 2 weeks at a time!

I'm trying hard to enjoy each moment, but it's tough work in these early days and there is an exhaustion haze that sort of clouds everything. I already feel like delivery and the hospital was a blur and it was only 21 days ago!
