My body

It's not back, exactly. But some major milestones accomplished.
  • I tied my shoes from a standing position. I bent over at the waist, tied my shoes, and stood upright again. No leaning on anything, no sitting. It's the first time since... Christmas? Thanksgiving?
  • I washed my feet in the shower without being short of breath, nearly falling over, or just pretending that my feet didn't need to be scrubbed like the rest of me.
It's pretty liberating. I didn't mind being pregnant at all, and it was doubtless an easy pregnancy. Honestly until I started this post I haven't even thought about the lack of movements inside of me.

Newborns keep you busy. The only thing you accomplish is keeping them fed and changing diapers. Somehow there is no time for anything else.

So I don't forget

When baby girl was born, each nostril was heart-shaped. Within the first couple of weeks they had changed shape but in the beginning... we didn't find the camera for a couple of weeks so we only have phone pictures of those early days, and I never got a shot of them. The Hottest Computer Scientist in the Universe never believed it but it was so true. Beautiful little hearts.

I'm writing this now when she is already nearly 5 months but I am afraid I will forget. So I'll back date it to when she was just a few days old. :)
