Pregnancy Diary 3 || One Week Old

Henry was 1 week old 3 days ago, so I'm a little late in finally posting this!

It has been a very relaxing 1.5 weeks since he was born. I am so blessed to have such a great support system. Between an awesome husband holding down the fort, on top of still working, amazing friends blessing us with meals, and grandmas and papas willing to watch the 3 big boys I have been able to just stay in bed all day with Henry. I have always tried to do too much too soon after having a baby, and my body always pays for it. I'm sure all you mom's out there can relate to that! So, this 4th time around I was determined to make myself take it easy. I am feeling pretty well so far. My insides still ache and sleep doesn't come easy, but I am feeling great mentally. I just keep reminding myself that we've done this 3 times before, and we made it through. My body will heal. The sleep will come. My milk supply will be sufficient. Normal life will resume. But for now, we are doing lots of this...

Henry is doing great as well! Healthy as can be. Nursing all the time, as he should, and loves sleeping on mommy. Pretty much just all the newborn things. 

And to finish up this pregnancy diary, here is one last belly shot!

I can't wait share Henry's birth story with you all too! But for now, here is a sneak peak at Henry's newborn pictures:

  1. love you your approach to that you're enjoying this which is unique...and yet common to women...but how many really embrace/enjoy it?

    and btw...this is Herma, not Dave
