I began typing this entry with one hand while I fed Bingo, on her one week birthday. I’m trying to finish it today, a full week later. Bingo’s first week disappeared so quickly that it’s already becoming a blur of emotions and new experiences. An attempt to document:
Thank you all for your welcomes to Bingo! I did, in fact, write updates during much/most of labor and will post them in the form of a birth story once I have a chance to edit.
Bingo is, in my totally biased opinion, the cutest baby on the block. This doesn’t negate the fact that I definitely spent a good amount of time this morning sititng in bed sobbing on to the baby after she went twelve hours last night constantly nursing, with the longest stretch of sleep for either of us being five minutes.
Luckily we have amazing friends and midwives, who bring food, laughter, hugs, advice and support. After a visit from the midwife this afternoon that included a crash course in improved breastfeeding, Bingo is now sound asleep and– of course– totally worth it all.
