the first week at home

Tummy time with daddy


Sweetness


Milk-drunk baby, sleep-deprived mother


Getting along


Did I mention that I have a killer case of postpartum edema (fluid retention and swelling) in my feet and legs from all the IV fluids I received? Can't wait for that to go away ... it's more bothersome than my c-section incision.

Oh, he is just so cute! How are you doing mom? Are you getting some sleep and healing ok? I hope parenthood is everything you'd dreamed of!

Thanks for taking a min. to post new pics... Daniel is so sweet.

My feet were BIGGER. Eww! I hate the swelling, too. It will go away soon!

He looks even more beautiful in these photos!

I hope you are feeling better and better. You look happy in your sleep-deprived photo.

My legs swelled like that too. We were still at the NICU, although I had been released the day before, and I asked the nurses if I should go down to the ER because my feet were so huge. They laughed at me, but I didn't realize it would happen.

What a doll! And you look fantastic (feet notwithstanding - ick, you poor thing!).

Thanks for sharing. What a precious little family!

Em, I just can't get over how adorable he is. The pic of you holding him and you can see his toes, and of course the one with Ingrid! And that red hair! Like Andrea said, you two will be another set of very special parents.
