Blowing Dust... this dusty corner, at least for a quick post :) (thanks for the poke Rachelle ;))

Also...typing on my phone, so beware of errors!

So...its been a busy year plus...with the most obvious big thing being the new addition.

This guy.

Nicholas Maxwell came screaming into our lives at 12:59 pm on March 5th. It was a day that has changed my life forever.

A few things I have come to learn in this short term:

-Maybe I got lucky, but the actual labor process wasn't nearly as horrific as I was expecting. It was really pretty smooth sailing!

-Post partum, on the other hand...has been much harder than I expected. These little ones change your life so completely its hard not to feel overwhelmed.

-I actually miss being pregnant a little bit! Mostly the kicks :)

-I am totally good giving myself a few years before cooking up another one of these ;)

-Sleep is overrated.

-Good thing this kid definitely has the cute factor going for him ;) I mean, seriously:

In short...its an adventure you really can't prepare for until you are thrust into it.

Its been hard on me, I won't lie. But...hoping it improves soon, and I continue to grow in love with my little guy :) One day at a time.

Here's to new life...literally :)

Yay! He is so stinking adorable Robin. Seriously. I love his little face! I still can't decide if he looks more like you or Mark...?
Anyway, I'm glad labor was better than you expected. I think everyone loves to tell labor horror stories...and so it's easy to get freaked out.
I'm sorry about the post-partum stuff. Ugh. Just know that it WILL get better! Promise!
I love how you summed it up at the end...there's no way to really prepare for it! So true. :)
