I use the term miracle in reference to Ryan himself, as well as the fact that he has looked like this for the past hour. I sat outside in the sun and read 2 entire chapters in a book, put away laundry, and tried out my new breast pump for the very first time.

Whenever Ryan sleeps like this during the day, it actually stresses me out because I fear he will be up all night. But this past hour was a much needed break for me, so I'll take it.

There is so much I have wanted to post, but so little time. At least, so little time that my hands are available to type.

Ryan's 2-week checkup is Friday. I'm hoping he has gained back most of the 14 ounces he lost. My checkup was today, and I am happy to report everything is healing nicely.

Again, so much more I could say but it's time to wake Ryan up to eat. It's been a tough 12 days for me, but things are slowly starting to get better.


  1. It will get better. It's okay if you feel like you're in a fog! It won't last forever. (Even if it kinda sucks right now) I'm not sure if you're breastfeeding or not, but I remember it being so stressful with Shea (my first) because I was always worried about something! Both of mine lost weight and both of them gained it back and I can say that it was so worth pushing through those tough first few weeks because things got a lot easier after a month or so.
