I've missed you guys. I don't know where to begin.
Well....to back things up a bit. Me and hubby got up on May 14th around 5am and left for the hospital around 6. We were there by 7 and by 8:30 they were prepping me for the C-Section.
All went well...even the ever so painful spinal tap. But once the meds kicked in was a walk in the park. Kobi was born at 9:54am and shortly after I was waiting for them to finish tying my tubes.
((I can't remember if I told you guys or not but that was our final decision. NO MORE BABIES....at least none coming out of me.))
I was in my suite by 12 and they sent me home on Sunday May 16th.
Since then I've spent my time doing the usual. Tending to a recently circumsized penis, getting peed, pooped and spitup on. Changing diapers and waking up every 2 hrs to put my nipples through more trauma than they should have to bare.
He is a very easy baby. All he wants is to be fed...ON TIME. I had to learn the hard way that he also hates to be changed before or after a feeding so I have to change him in between switching boobs.
We are still getting used to having a new person around here. Lael has been a big help. She holds him everyday and has recently fed him from a bottle.
D hasn't had much time with him but she will be here for summer break so I'll be sure to teach her how to change a diaper or two.
Hubby is giddy. He stares at him mostly. Poking at him like he's a pet. All I can do is giggle.
I can't believe it's been 4 weeks. He was 7lbs 11oz when born and 7lbs 5oz when we left the hospital. I took him back for his 2 week checkup and he was already 9lbs. I think it's safe to say he will be one of those adorable, make you want to nibble on their cheeks, chubby babies.
As I sit here typing he is laying on my chest but it still doesn't feel real. I feel like I'm babysitting. I'm not sure when I will get used to him.
His is all sorts of awesome.
Here are a few pictures of the last few weeks.....
