I just can’t decide what to do with this silly, slightly embarrassing blog. I have thought about deleting it but then realized that I need a place to share the one thousand pictures I take of my child and my dog. So instead of being an oversharer/poster on Facebook I will just be one on here! Lucky you.
Updates: in case you missed it- we had a baby and we are kind of crazy about him.
I’ve thought about posting his birth story but it would be a million pages long and might make me sound slightly dramatic. The short version: I was in labor for 12 hours and then we realized Colin was breech. He was born via c-section on March 10. He weighed 9 pounds 1.5 ounces and was 21 1/2 inches long. Between a stomach virus and dehydration, his birth, and an infection afterwards we stayed in the hospital a total of 9 days. For the love.
It’s true what they say- that you’ll find yourself a few weeks after they’re born and you’ll be so in love with this tiny human that you say you’d do it all again in a heartbeat.
Don’t you worry about Elaine- she is adjusting just fine. She does, however, think that some of Colin’s stuff is for her. Is this a play mat thing or Elaine’s new bed?
She loves him as long as he doesn’t cry. Crying scares her.
I think they will be the best of friends.
So there you have it- Colin was born, Elaine is her same spazzy self and our hearts have never been so full.
