Last night the most horrifying thing happened. Ok perhaps not the most horrifying but it was weird and it made me a little faint. I was going to the washroom when I notice some tissue coming out of my you know what. I called the hospital and spoke to a maternity nurse and she told me that if I could put it out it would be fine. So I went to the washroom and it was like 5 inches long. Dreadful. That was perhaps one of the grossest things that I’ve ever been a part of but also kinda neato too. It gave me that picked a really big booger feeling, kinda satisfying. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed that little story. Just to be nice, I left out the part of how it smelled.
My house is oh so very clean right now. Mom was brave enough to look behind and under things and clean them. Jill was a laundry nut head and even folded which she hates doing. My whole house is as fresh as a daisy now, it’s lovely and I’m so thankful. Brent and I are trying hard to keep it this way.
I hope I’m not speaking too soon when I say this. I was scared that Isaac would be a dreadful baby compared to how easy Silas was. I never thought for once that he might be easier but he is. Weird huh? He’s a better nurser which I didn’t think was possible but he is. He holds his latch really well and handles my spurting milk with ease. He does cough on it a little but that’s ok. His coughs are very cute. He has this one cry where he sounds just like Winnie The Pooh. He’s quite the darling and I’m feeling starry eyed about him already. That could be because he only woke up twice last night and went back to sleep after he ate. He slept better than I did. I was a little hyper still.
I’m just feeling so much better this time. Anything would have been better than what I had to go through with Silas. I was so bruised and stitched and swollen. Not to mention the horrible rash I had afterwards (crossing my fingers that it doesn’t come this time) and all the awful feelings towards Silas. I remember when Silas was over a month old I could still hardly sit. I really recommend not ripping or having forcepts bashing around inside of you to anyone who’s about to have a baby, it’s truly a delight.
Anyway, I need to eat some food and have a nap. I’m going to see if Isaac wants more food now too. He’s been so awake all morning. Except for having a nap with mommy on my chest, sooo nice.
Isaac curled up on Auntie Jill’s lap. Weird angle I know. We need to take more photos.
