One Week Old

November 2, 2008

It’s amazing that he’s already a week old. I’ve heard that they “grow so fast”, but seriously!

For a few days there, I gotta admit, I felt frayed around the edges, but these last few days have been completely wonderful. Binary Boy and I have found our groove, and because of that, I’m happy to report that he barely cries.

I had read “The Baby Book” by Dr. Sears during my pregnancy, so it was nice to use what I had learned – about catching their signs of discomfort before they start crying.

It’s not really hard, really, as I still can’t stop gazing at him constantly. And I guess my mothering instincts have kicked in because I know what he needs by his facial and body language and can usually cut off a cry before it kicks into high gear.

I know parenting is a constant learning process, but I’m happy that he and I work well together already. Kevin is learning, too, but I know it’s a slower process for dads, so I’ve been trying my best to be patient. That’s been harder than learning Binary Boy’s cues, though! Heehee!

It’s rare that I have the time to write at any length, so his birth story might be another week or two – but I have started it. I want to get it recorded before I forget the whole thing!

Also, I wanted to thank everyone here for the comments, emails, ecards and gifts. They make me so happy and I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family! :heart:

Looking at your picture.

Photoshopped? Can anyone look that good that fast?

it’s been a while since I last came and read your posts here. you were like in the middle term of your pregnancy and look at you now, you’re now holding and nursing your binary boy! he’s sooooo cute and handsome.

he weighs the same as my girl 9 months ago and so as the height..

I am sooo happy for you Chandra! So many things have changed in your life since I ‘met’ you. I regret that I didn’t keep up better with everything that’s happened.

Much love to you and your little family . . . Ronnie
