The post you’ve (or at least me!) all been waiting for…

He’s here, he’s here!  Sweet baby Aidan came at 39 weeks and we feel so very blessed!

I may get around to publishing his birth story on here later, but for now I’m enjoying snuggling my precious newborn and trying to pull my very excited little daughters off the walls.  Sleep has become a hot commodity.  I miss it.  :)

I’m relearning the dance of breastfeeding and wondering why nobody has made infant ponchos during these first few weeks as mother’s milk readjusts to something that doesn’t resemble a horizontal Old Faithful.  That, and boy diapers.  Oh. Boy.  First I was terrified to even touch and once I got over the need for ointment and gauze, I quickly learned the uncertainty that comes with each change (Will I need a change or clothes or won’t I?).  And today I had my first miss overall – Changing a dirty diaper only to have him begin “dirtying” a new one mid-change as I scrambled to catch it all before it hit the bed.  Then, my premature breath of relief as I reached for the wipes to clean him up and pee began spraying EVERYWHERE!

What I’ve learned:

1.  Use a changing pad
2.  Make mom change all of his diapers
2.  Use a “shield” and stop being so darn leisurely!

Also, I forget how much laundry comes with having a newborn AND breastfeeding.  Sheesh.

Did I mention I need sleep?

Blog posts may get quite interesting over the next month or so with this whole sleep deprivation thing.

    Yeah Nana tried to change Steven once on her lap in the van. Changing pad was definitely needed. She learned her lesson and we had to return home for a change of clothes (for her, not Steven). lol

    And the shower all little boys love to give people, yeah I don’t miss that. :-)

    I’ve been waiting for it! I check your blog regularly even if I’ve only posted a few times. Congrats on your baby boy!!!!! Can’t wait to see more posts about him in the future when you have time. My baby boy who will be 5 months in a week was born at 39 weeks also.

    What a sweetheart! And what a sweet heart on his little nose! Looks like you’ve already got hands-on help — the girls must be thrilled with a real life baby doll to watch over.

    You did good, girl! I love you and hope to come see you all in person, but I’ll give you a heads up before I do :) .
