The joys & surprises of new parenthood
New parenthood is definitely the most humbling of experiences. No matter how much you read, or how much people tell you or warn you, I'm pretty sure nothing could get a person ready for these first couple weeks with a newborn. You may think that you are pretty organized, accomplished and capable person, but within days of bringing your baby home you'll find yourself wandering around your house in your underwear, exhausted, unkempt, stomach empty, crying your eyes out because the breast-feeding is so much harder than you anticipated.
But it's also been the most amazing two weeks. We are loving every moment we get to know Finley better. He's such an awesome little guy with so many expressions, so much personality and ridiculously cuddly. It's sounds cliche, but true: he's completely stolen our hearts.
I've got alot to blog about; I want to share a little bit about the labour and delivery, grandma and grandpa's visit, and of course share umpteen million photos of Finley. But blogging and new parenting aren't that compatible for me, so I'll keep this one brief. For now I will let the pictures do the talking, and will post more once we are all a bit more rested (in 12 months or so!)
