eviction notice

Finally, FINALLY. I’m thrilled to introduce you to our new baby friend Codie Loren, aged 41 weeks, two days. She wrestled herself loose of my uterus on June 23 at 9:44 p.m. after 24 brave and inspirational hours of labor.

I had a really great screaming, bloody baby pic but out of respect for the baby, I'm using this cute one instead.

We got home late last night and may have had as many as two consecutive hours of sleep before we awoke to Codie’s first insistent, hungry baby squawks. My milk came in this morning and she’s been doing her damnedest to drain me of it by way of frantic clusterfeeds. I have no idea what I’m doing, again. I’m bursting with joy and hormones.

I’m bursting with zero fucks about your hormones.

Watching Kenzie interact with her baby sister has been incredible. She’s been really sweet and gentle, if somewhat frustrated that the baby can’t do more things. Overall she has really taken well to sisterhood.

Which spot shouldn't I push on? This one right here?

I’m writing the birth story to end all birth stories, but in the meantime i just wanted to check in and reassure you all that the fetus has, in fact, landed and that we are all happy and healthy and adequately medicated.

Here's me looking medicated.
