and we came home today, on 12.11.10.

i'd have loved to stay in the hospital the extra day- but being home is easier on miss alex- so home it is.

i'll type out all the details later. but for now i rest, cry, feed, rock, change- etc etc.

and dear God- how could i have forgotten the pain of breastfeeding??? barely 2 days in & i'm dying. i've resorted to a nipple shield- need. relief. now.

but it's worth it. oh indeed.

Happy day. She's beautiful. :)

Also, I found something pretty amazing. I was browsing through some of your old posts, and 12/08 you posted a pic of embryo Alex, and now, a pic of your family of four.

Anyway, I thought that was pretty wonderful. Congratulations!

Congratulations!! She is beautiful!! For some reason, I imagined breastfeeding not to hurt the second time around. I guess I was wrong. Hang in there...sooo worth it!
