Two Weeks!

It has been a crazy 2 weeks. My life literally revolves around my little Jack man.
Here are some quick random thoughts:

  1. No fancy masters degree or Ph.D can prepare you for motherhood. 
  2. Babies cry. And it is ok.
  3. I have never felt this inadequate or felt the strong urge to never screw up ever before. 
  4. Baby's daddy is wonderful - amazingly wonderful with little Jack man. He even took him last night out of our bedroom just so I could sleep. And man, I feel like a brand new woman.
  5. I am healing nicely - I think. I get around pretty well. And feel pretty good.
  6. Hormones are all acting up and acting crazy. Make me a little crazy too. 
  7. But thank goodness for a wonderful family and friends - they offer so much support and encouragement. 
  8. There is such a thing as projectile pooping.
  9. Some days, I don't remember if I brushed my teeth or not.
  10. The best "gifts" I have received so far doesn't come in a gift bag or wrapped up with a cute bow. It is actually someone bringing me food. It is someone sending me a text to make sure the hormones didn't boogey-man-caught me. It is someone telling me it is OK. So consider that as a baby shower present. These simple gestures go beyond any fancy cute outfits.  
I'll leave you with a picture of Jack-a-roo and me. 

P.S.: Sorry this blog has deviated from running. I still have plans to get back on the treadmill and run again once I get the OK from the doc. I'll probably start something like Couch to 5K when the time comes. Until then, I am just going to update probably once a week on how things are on the motherhood front. 
Bear with me. 
Thank you!
