Writing this from my phone as our sweet baby sleeps on my shoulder.
Our baby Charlie is a week old today, he was born by planned c-section on September 25. Everything went smoothly with no issues. He came out screaming but is generally a lovely quiet baby when he isn’t irritated by something like a diaper change (he hates them).
I’m still recovering but it’s not as bad as I was expecting. I just need to take it easy and rest as much as possible. We spent about three and a half days in the hospital getting constantly poked and prodded and we were all so happy to go home.
We are so delighted that he’s finally here and we love learning how to be parents. My husband is much more natural with him than I am and I love watching them. Charlie also looks just like him and I can’t wait to see what he ends up looking like.
