Well, our brand new baby boy arrived a little more than two weeks ago, on August 21. Artyom Alexander D. weighed 8 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 19 and 3/4 long. I’ll post my birthstory later, it was wonderful!
Finally, I can sit at the computer comfortably!!! Despite not feeling truly miserable until the final three days of my pregnancy, I realize that the past two-three months were uncomfortable enough to keep me off the computer chair and ass deep in pillows on the couch. At last I hope to transfer my journaling online. Actually, I’m not totally normal yet, I feel like we have welcomed more than our new son into the household. My breasts have taken on a life of their own, including not only a size change that seems to be keeping pace with our baby’s robust growth, but also a fussy character that surpasses colicky witching hour awakenings. I’m just waiting for my nipples to burst open and start squalling inconsolably. That’s all for now.
