oh, babies...

So I had a baby girl four weeks ago. It was an amazing experience. I can say that now, but at the time I was pretty sure I would never go through it again.

But, as my mom used to say, you forget about it and want a new one as soon as you do. I think I forgot about it forty eight hours post-birth this time, rather than two-weeks last time.

It was a much better experience... mostly because I have an incredibly supportive husband who was extremely dependable and self-sacrificing... and continues to be.

OK, up and at 'em. Four weeks... now I can do my visiting teaching, parenting, relief-society presiency-ing, reading, homeschooling, cooking, and scripture study again. Right?

Sigh. I wonder what I'm going to do next time... they will outnumber us, and I won't have four weeks to laze around healing. I'll have to be up and at em even while doped up on ibuprophin.

Motherhood... gotta love it.

I really do love it. And I already want another one. I guess this ibuprophin is working a little too well.

I only have baby girls, too. They are sweet.

Maren, Thanks. It's fun to see what others out there are thinking.
