Things have been going okay with us. Not perfect but expecting perfect would be ridiculous (but understandable!). I have been struggling with the "baby blues" (what a stupid and insulting name for something that is very frustrating), Stella's recent turn for the worse and Gideon's possible milk/soy allergy in addition to normal new baby strife. My excellent husband and mommy friends have really been there for me and I am so grateful for the food, love, and support!
I expected Valentine's Day to pass without much pomp or circumstance but I was totally surprised by my wonderful husband who got me a throw I was admiring weeks ago, and then Gideon surprised me with a beautiful framed pic of himself. My father in law made my day by running out to the store for me so I could treat my husband to chocolates from me and an "I love Daddy" onsie from Giddy Poo Poo. That evening we gave up some valuable sleep time to lay in bed together and watch "Easy A" (excellent except for the stupid ending).
Emily Quattrochi came over last week for a newborn photosession and we could not be more pleased with the results. She even put together this awesome youtube video of our little guy.
I am currently terrified about Mac going back to work next week. I am scared of how much harder this is going to get and of how much strain it will put on our relationship. I feel like a need to set attainable daily goals for myself in order to stave off disappointment and regret. We will see how it goes. Everyone says that this will get better soon and we just have to get through it and while I know this it would still be nice to have a time machine right?
