The Baby Boy

He is finally here!

The first few days have been so challenging and yet rewarding.  Holding this little guy and looking into his eyes makes time stand still and my heart flutter.  Staying up all night trying to navigate the challenges of breast feeding makes time stand still in a totally different way.  We are elated and exhausted wich is a combo that keeps us going hour after hour when all we want to do is sleep. Today was our first visit to the pediatrician and things are good.  Now, it is a matter of adapting our schedules and learning his routine and how we fit into it!  I am so excited about what every day holds now.  When will he smile at me, when will he start making fun sounds, when will he start discovering his hands?  All of this excitement and anticipations outweighs the misery of 3 am diaper changes and crying jags.
