Before Judah was born, I made a promise to myself that this blog wouldn't turn into a blog where I only post pictures of my kid and how much he weighs or what milestones he is hitting.
What I didn't know is that:
1. I don't go anywhere. At least not really. So pretty much all I do is feed him and eat. And take a daily walk. Yesterday I cleaned the bathroom and did some laundry. So there isn't much exciting going on. Except finding out how much he weighed.
2. Since I'm not working right now (which is wonderful) I don't really have any patient/medical stories to tell. Although I did go sit in on a c-section after his doctor visit on wednesday - one of my more special patients had her c-section and she really wanted me there. Thankfully, it was possible for me to go - and I got to see her sweet baby girl. It was a little bit weird being back in that room. But I realized I have a whole new empathy for my patients now that I've actually gone through a c-section. I know what it's like to be laying on that table, feeling like you have to puke, and feeling them push on you to get the baby out.
3. I can't even really post any recipes since we're still being brought meals. I knew I would appreciate meals, but it's been really wonderful not having to worry about cooking. Last night we got some super delicious chicken pot pie and frozen chocolate pie. Yum.
4. My kid might be the cutest ever. So of course the whole world wants to see lots and lots of photos of him. :)
So eventually, hopefully I'll get back to posting more substantive stuff. Until then, here are a few more random thoughts:
1. I talked to the doc who did my c-section and he told me I could start running as early as this weekend. If I want. I don't think I do, right now, but maybe in another week or so. I cannot wait.
2. I've never been one that has to shower daily, but these days I feel so gross unless I do. I get really sweaty (my sister in law tells me that happened to her to) and then with the breast feeding, the shower feels. so. good.
3. I don't know how people have babies without lots of help. How they do it if they're single. Or don't have parents/friends/ and a great church family. I think I'd be a puddle of tears without Jeff and everyone else who's been so great.
