We are in love.
No matter what anyone tells you, you are never, ever fully prepared for this parenting thing. The last two weeks have been the most intense and challenging of my entire life. We've been on a sleep-deprived emotional roller coaster, with moments of pure joy, terror and sometimes, utter frustration. Also, breastfeeding is hard. But more on that stuff later. Above are some photos from the hospital. Poor thing's face is scratched up in the second one...she's like Edward Scissorhands, but freaks out when we try to put mittens on her. More to come whenever I come up for air again.
