One Great Week.
This morning I was up nursing Audrey and looked at the clock and it was a little before 3:00am and I could hardly believe that exactly a week ago I was in labor pushing this little blue angel out! What a fabulous week it has been and we are seriously in heaven. I will definitely share my labor story next week because I want to write it out while it’s fresh in my mind, especially the timeline.
Lillian is absolutely loving being a big sister and is so loving. We are just trying to get her to be a little bit more gentle when she touches Audrey’s face. Why do toddlers always go for the face??
Both girls are easy babies with calm temperaments. Audrey is definitely a lot louder than Lillian was. She always grunts! It has been so wonderful having Lillian in school full time because I can focus my attention during the day on Audrey and when Lillian comes home from school we can be together. I haven’t been feeling guilty (knock on wood) about dividing my attention.
We still have a lot of things to do to get the nursery done!! Audrey’s due date was the 18th so I thought I had some time. Guess my tip is get it all figured out by 37 weeks!
I am taking my recovery very seriously. I stayed in bed all day yesterday and watched Book Club. And I haven’t been out of the house for more than ten minutes to walk a few blocks. I was really, really fortunate that I had no tearing so my recovery has been great. My muscles are sore and my ligaments feel weak so I am just taking it easy.
All I can say is how grateful I am for our every aspect of our experience. From the labor and delivery, to our hospital stay, to our time at home- it has been nothing short of magical. I am loving spending time with Jesse, although he has had some meetings here and there that he has to pop into the office for.
And the question I have been getting frequently— literally two minutes after I delivered Audrey (from all of the nurses who were like YOU HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY THAT WAS SUCH AN AWESOME DELIVERY) is if we are having a third. For about thirty minutes after I delivered I was like SH!!!!T I don’t think I need to do that again but then thirty one minutes later I was like yessssss, we’re definitely having a third!!!!
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support!!! The best way to get in touch with me with questions is to message me on Instagram! @carolinemcurran
