Here is the birth notice I just sent out:
I don’t really have too much new to add at the moment other then that things are continuing to go well. Here are some of the pictures included in the announcement:
And here’s some of dad. We don’t really have too many pictures of all of us together yet and none that are really suitable for public consumption. Soon we will!
“Schmick, schmick, schmick,” is what Frida was just saying here.
I love this next one because it took me way longer than this to get a good latch on her. She instantly latched onto Jonathan like a pro and then proceeded to mangle me (owie) while figuring out how to actually get some breakfast going. I am mostly healed now thank goodness.
We actually have bazillions of pictures by now of course. This is the weirdest one of myself that I actually really love.
Raspberry, in case you were wondering. Hopefully people don’t consider this picture tmi since I feel like that it kind of sums up what just happened in a sort of amusing way. I’ve never tasted anything so delicious in my life. Laboring from 4:30 am to 11:30am meant that I had missed breakfast and at this point I was suddenly extremely hungry. Frida is so fresh and pink and only about 45 minutes old. And of course there is Katie, my beloved midwife who was so, so amazing. She was staying with us for 3 days on either side of the birth (she is psychic) and was a support and help in a way I can’t possibly describe adequately. Everyone should be blessed to have a friend so amazing and knowledgeable around during and after birth to alleviate any concerns and answer questions at the drop of a hat. I especially can’t thank her enough for supporting me with starting nursing since that was something I was really worried about, and which so far is going great. Thank you Katie, I love you!
I’ll be posting more later but for now sleep deprivation is kicking in. Till next time.
