i have moments where i am filled with the feeling that i can DO this...and moments where i wonder how we'll make it to the afternoon. i'm grateful for o, our dear neighbors, my closest friends, our lactation consultant, and my mom (who has been with us for the past few days)...without them i'd be lost. they've sat with me in my low moments and helped as we adjust to this new way of life.
here is a quick photo of me and maeve from her first day in the hospital. my dear dear friend (and incredible photographer) christina wnek took the photos in this post and i adore them...i find myself looking at them over and over, almost as if i have to convince myself that they are real and that that is me...and my daughter! i do the same with the text of the email we sent out when she was born...i read it over and over. i'm in disbelief.
