Holy Crap! I had a baby!

Christian Steven was born on Sunday, June 22.
I've started his own blog:

Motherhood is going well. I fell into the role smoother than I thought I would. Breastfeeding and 3 am diaper changings feel normal to me already. I am still adjusting to only 2-3 hours of sleep at a time. Richard thinks I'm pushing myself too hard because I don't take naps during the day. I've tried, but I'm not a napper. It's hard for me to sleep when Christian sleeps. Since I'm breastfeeding, it's not like Richard and I can switch off feedings. He does help me change him every few hours. Or he will burp Christian for me. Plus, I actually enjoy breastfeeding time with Christian. He is extra cuddly and sweet right after.

I hate diapers. I don't mind changing them. I'm annoyed that they don't stop the pee. They leak. This is how the couch, the bed, and me all got wet.

Mmm, can't wait to change those diapers. :) I'll be there soon. I'm so proud of you; from what I've seen, you are making a phenomenal mama.

PS: I'll nap for you. I'm really extra-good at napping. xo
