Baby Update!

Baby pics! I know you wanted them :).

She's doing wonderful so far. Breastfeeding like a pro (whew! I was a tad nervous about this, all those stories you hear...), sleeping 2-4 hrs at a time at night waking up to eat, and all over cute.

She was already up past her birthweight again at the 2 week appointment, so all is well there, and the pediatrician said she was "perfect"!

I have even managed a little knitting...I finished a lace scarf with some handspun paco-vicuna that I started the weekend before I had her (the true waiting for baby project), finished those suffolk-cross socks, and even started a new pair that I can knit while she nurses! So, knitting blogging up next.

The birth was amazing. We had a waterbirth, all natural, at a hospital birthing center attended by a midwife. I'm still processing it all, how crazy amazing women are, really. Nate was there with me the whole time supporting me. She came into the world, and our lives changed.

Cute and little. All baby.

Now, the fun part, the hard part, the scary part, the awesome part. Being parents. Taking care of a person.

Promise, little one, we'll do our best.
