It's been half a week since Suzy joined our little family. I'm so happy- it's hard to express in words. Everything is so much different from when Noah was born. I am enjoying it so much more- it helps knowing what to expect more or less. Although, I did think Suzy would be the same as Noah and I am finding that she is very different. For instance, she LOVES being swaddled, taking her binky, and nursing- all of which Noah hated. Noah is adjusting to having her around. It was hard the first couple days- he didn't want anything to do with her...or really with me either- he was scared of my hospital bed and IV. But yesterday, we caught him talking to her on the couch and showing her his toys. He also randomly comes up to her and kisses her head. I know they will eventually be best friends.
As for me, I am recovering better than I did last time. It still takes me a while to move around and I have to take pain meds all the time, but each day is a little bit better. Suzy is worth it.
