Hey, Happy Wednesday everyone! I guess I'm sorta' recapping a weekend today.. but more like just recapping the past handful of days. Life is totally a blur and I honestly have to check what day of the week it is about 25 times a day. I just cannot keep track of time or dates to save my life.
Yesterday was officially my due date, which brought all kinds of emotions to the forefront. Even though you know due dates are just an educated guess, it's still the date you keep in mind for 9 long months while you're growing a baby and dreaming about what he/she will be like. Not to mention the half dozen emails from various baby subscriptions congratulating me on being at my due date--- while I stared at my almost 3 week old little man. Just such a mix of feelings yesterday. I'm happy to say I survived ;)

Visitors to the house have been such a blessing to Jared and I. Even though it sometimes feel stressful trying to time up feedings and naps the best we can, it's always so sweet to have visitors and see/feel their excitement over meeting our son. The meals we've received, the diapers that have been dropped off and even goodies like flowers and chocolates for this momma have meant the world. It is so nice to feel loved and know that your baby is loved, too. I can't even begin to thank everyone enough!
Other than that? I wipe booty, feed a mouth and stare at this little cutie all day long. I'm still in awe that Jared and I made such a cute, perfect human. Obviously we are biased, first-time parents but I can't believe he's ours. Amazing and terrifying to know we are responsible for this tiny person!
I hope you all are doing well! I haven't read blogs in almost 3 weeks but I hope to catch up with you all and your blogs in the near future. Life is slowly becoming "normal" so we'll see if I can utilize naptime to catch up soon ;)
