It's official after 38 weeks of pregnancy our Little Man had decided he'd been baking enough and wanted to make his move into the world! Monday, April 20th at 3:57 P.M. after 64 hours of "signs of labor" and 21 hours of actual labor Nathaniel decided to grace us with his presence.
Labor was no cake walk by all means but I'll get into that in another post though. It's crazy to see how much my life has changed since having him. We knew it would, I mean how could it not?! There are days I want to scream and pull my hair out I'm not gonna lie, but the joy of having a little person you know is created out of so much love and looks as cute as he does (I may be a bit bias.. LOL) makes up for the late nights and screaming/crying cause you don't get what he wants right away and that's his only way to tell you.
Eleanor at first was weary of Nathan but now at four weeks old she watches him like a hawk and if he cries comes running to make sure he's okay.
We've chosen to cloth diaper him and my game plan is to breastfeed him till he's at least a year old. The older he gets the more adorable he gets I swear! I also think he is starting to look more and more like his Daddy which isn't a bad thing at all! Everyone else says he look's like me but either or he's adorable.
I only have 8 weeks of leave to spend with him and while some moments 8 weeks seems like a very long time but more often it's makes me kind of sad to go back to work and miss out on any moment or development he does. It's a learning curve but it's is definitely a blast!
