The Gestation of Blueberry*

Hello! Blueberry is 11 days old today. I have learned a lot about her, myself and Stanley in those 11 days. It was a roller coaster. I had to deal with extreme sleep deprivation, crashing hormones that made me cry with happiness at times and frustration at other times, and trouble with breastfeeding. But the hormones seem to have leveled off; now I just get misty sometimes, which is, I think, the appropriate response to my situation. I got 5 hours of sleep the night before last, and 7 or 8 last night. Not in a row, but I'll take what I can get. And breastfeeding is going great.

Stanley made this video of my belly photos. Enjoy! Let me know if you can't see it.

*Names changed

I love watching the scenery change behind the belly photos! Camping, Christmas stockings, more and more Christmas cards, then no cards - then a baby! Who knew she would come out of there! :)

I agree, I love the scenery changes! Fiona liked your slideshow and asked to watch it 'again' a few times, and danced to the song. I also discovered that she thinks all babies are named Adele :-) Glad you're all doing well.

I love babies. And bellies. And Christmas. And camping.
