My stomach has gone down a great deal since I delivered Jr. It's no six pack, not hardly even a two pack, but I did manage to do my first few sit-ups the other day. Breastfeeding has been a huge help too, as I'm burning around 500 calories from that alone.

I didn't talk to my pops much during the time I was pregnant and going through all of the many changes of these past few months. I think maybe he had a hard time understanding and grasping all that was happening...it was happening so fast. I imagine he had many concerns that went unvoiced, unspoken. Hearsay lets me know it was harder than he let on to me. It couldn't have been easy for him to have me disappoint him by what went on. He still has a church congregation who look to him for guidance, and I'm sure he had a lot to deal with -- I'm sure he felt he had some smut on his face because of my choices.
All in all I think he just wants the best for me. I imagine any father only wants the best for his little one...I know me and Jr.'s daddy only want the very best for him.
My dad called the other day just to chat and see how we were all doing. We hadn't done that in a while.
It was nice.

There have been people who were concerned about how Bud would react to becoming a big brother. Understandable, as many dogs do have trouble adjusting when a new baby comes into the house. We were never worried however. Bud is not getting as many walks or as many pats on the head as before, but he is coming into big brotherdom nicely. Every so often he'll come and give Jr. a big lick on the head. It makes Jr. look a little guido like he's got gel in his hair. Guido or not, Jr. is the most handsome I've ever seen...well, other than his pops.

Jr.'s arrival and the hours leading up to his birth was a very private and intimate time for our new little family. There were many hard moments, joyous moments, and surprising moments. I couldn't begin to justly put into words all the emotions and experiences of those few hours, so instead I'll give you a brief and small glimpse - a few snapshots on the day the little boy who brought us all together finally met the two people whose lives had been immensely changed because of him.
The end of the beginning...

Did you know that when you get an epidural you also have to get a urinary catheter?? I didn't either, but it didn't really matter anyway. Initially I did freak out when the nurse informed me of this, but since I ended up completely numb I didn't really know much difference.

I don't have many pictures yet of me and Wyatt as I've not had much time to primp and look good for a picture pose. I'm barely finding time to eat these days. But tonight is my first date with the hubbs since having Jr. I hope I have time to shower first!

Believe me, our mornings are not as restful as this looks. But I just love having my handsome men around me. Sometimes after a morning feeding I'll bring Jr. over to Yo for some good cuddle time just like this. It's the most sweet thing. More cuddle time please!
