Shabbos as a Mommy was amazing! It was so emotional lighting a third candle.
Rochel stayed with us to help out and bond with her new nephew. She was such a good help!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!
We put the bassinet by the table and he was chilling with us for the meal, no fussing, because he's good like that, ka"h.
The Sholom Zachor was at my father's house and Shuky went right away after the meal. He got home around 3, I think. He said it was really nice and alot of people came. (The people who ended up not making it made a special point to come and apologize to him in shul the next day.)
The night was a bit tough, having been spoiled by the nurses who would whisk him off to the nursery so I could sleep and bring him to me when he would get hungry. I would really like it if they could install a call button on my bed and answer to me 24/7. Am I asking for too much?? But, we made it through the night - it really wasn't too bad...
He ended up sleeping in my bed after the last nursing and I just watched him. He's beautiful. And delicious. And makes the yummiest sounds and faces and I wanted to eat him. But I figured explaining that would be hard so I just watched him and sighed. Oh, and I spoke to him alot. He's a great listener! He's very alert so he just stares at you as if he understands and really feels for you.
Mommy duties call. My baby is having a hard time falling asleep.
