Being a mama is better than I ever thought it would or could be. We came home on Sunday evening, 48 hours after my C-section and Si's arrival. Having our family of three together in our home has been so sweet and I have honestly loved every moment. I was afraid of what postpartum would look like and now that I'm on this side of things, those fears are gone. Not saying it won't be rough, or hasn't been tough (that first night at home was LONG!), but I love this little boy more than I thought possible and being a mama seriously is so much fun.
Recovering from a C-section is no joke though. I think the hardest part is letting my mom and Chris do things for me that are pretty simple. My legs are ridiculously swollen (think StayPuff Marshmallow Man), so I've been trying to keep them up as much as possible. Having my mom here is literally a God-send. I don't know what I'd do without her. Not just for the essential, practical help, but she's such a great support for me.
I wasn't planning on sharing our birth story on here, but man, it's a doozy, so I think I'll be typing it up to share soon.
Off to cuddle my sweet Si and get some lunch!
