One month later

I just lived the fastest month of my life. Exactly one month ago, I was in the hospital, having contractions, hoping they would stop, but somehow knowing in my gut that I was having a baby that night. I can’t wrap my head around the fact that this didn’t all just happen this past Friday.

Ian is doing great. Having him here is fabulous. We’ve had a few nights of him not sleeping at all, which subsequently makes me a zombie, but it’s such a fabulous problem to have.

He’s growing like crazy. His newborn clothes finally fit, and at this rate, they’re not going to fit for long. His weight was 6 pounds, 7 ounces last Tuesday, which was exactly a pound over his birth weight. He has another pediatrician appointment tomorrow, and I’m excited to see how much he’s gained. I’m confident that he’s over 7 pounds at this point.

I wish I could come up with more to say at this point, but I’m so exhausted I can hardly keep my eyes open. Last night was one of those very special nights. 🙂 We’re still having a blast with our little guy. I can’t believe he’s here and I can’t believe he’s ours. Thanks for all your well wishes.

  1. Up all night and he’s confused about days and nights? Sounds like everything is perfectly normal. And, I’m not laughing at you, but laughing because I remember those days, so long ago. LOL Enjoy and hope you get some rest soon!

  2. You have no idea how many times I’ve come here to check up on you four. <3 Much love. SO glad you're having an amazing albeit fast first month. <3

  3. Happy One Month Old Birthday, Ian! Loved your picture with the sock monkey. You are so handsome. Can’t wait to hear the weight check today!!

  4. Congratulations for a million time! I’m glad you are enjoying Ian, that he is gaining weight like a pro. I didn’t get to see a picture of him but my heart tells me he is beautiful. The first 6 weeks are the hardest but it so worth it. Keep up a great job, mom!

  5. So happy he’s home. I really agree with you about coming home. It wasn’t as emotional as you think it will be. You just keeping moving forward. And as much as I wish I could sleep more I wouldn’t trade the sleepless nights feeding and crying for the sleepless nights while my child is in the NICU.
