Thanksgiving weekend was a much needed time of family bonding and rest. Adam had a few days off, and combined with the weekend, it was a HUGE help to have an extra set of hands around. I’ve noticed that whenever I know he’s going to be home during the day, I feel much more relaxed and at ease. I do feel much more confident now though during the days that I’m on my own, but there’s still that little bit of anxiety that seeps in and makes me feel overwhelmed. We’re almost 6 weeks into this whole “mom” thing, and everyday I learn more and more!
Today I had my 6 week postpartum checkup with my doctor, and I’m officially cleared of all things maternity! Bring on the marathon training, sex, and booze! HA. Just kidding. While I feel muuuuucccchhh more like myself than I did a few weeks ago, and physically I feel like I’ve just about healed, it’s still going to be a while before I feel like I’m 100% back to normal! It’s almost like I feel like a totally different person.
Anywho, I wanted to stop by today and share my favorites from Adeline’s Bella Baby hospital photos and newborn photos! The Bella Baby pics were taken the second day we were in the hospital, and she already looks so different! Then we took her newborns when she was 12 days old, and I’m thrilled with how they turned out. I wish we could have taken them sooner, but physically there’s no way I would have been up for it! Even on the day we took them, I had a 100 degree fever, two plugged ducts, the start of mastitis, and was still baby blues-ing it up big time.
I ordered a few canvases on Black Friday, and am itching to have prints made of all the photos! I’m thinking a photobook of her birth photos, bella baby hospital photos, and newborn photos is in order.
We think she’s the most beautiful thing on the planet.
