I forgot to add how surprised I was that breastfeeding went so smoothly for us. I’ve heard horror stories about sore, cracked nipples and babies that just don’t latch on, but we’ve never had that problem. I was sore up until day 5, then it was fine! Claire is a great latcher, she’s clearly getting what she needs (last Friday she weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and the day before yesterday she weighed in at 7 lbs 12 oz!), and she’s pooping like a champ now (and to believe I was worried that she’d never poop – ha!).

Her latest comical move? To poop and/or pee on Mom’s hand when she’s getting a fresh diaper put on her. Thanks, kid! She did this in the Drs. office on Friday after her appointment. I’m sure the nurses outside of the room were wondering why Huz and I were laughing so hard in that room by ourselves. Oh, and the day before that? Little comedian Claire puked (like projectile – as in big ol’ arc over herself and onto me) the entire contents of her stomach onto my nice new nightie. N.I.C.E.

Ah, the joys of parenting. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Life is good
