Wow...it has already been almost 2 weeks since little Eliana arrived, and I feel like I am just starting to pull it together. Literally I don't think I've really gotten dressed in the past 3 weeks. I have barely showered, brushed my hair, or seen the sun. I mean my life has been Eliana. I know everyone warned me about this, but I really had no idea. Its really hard to get my own time. I don't actually mind it that much, but I know I probably don't look or smell the best. I can't wait to have more of a schedual.
And now I see why so many women don't breast feed. It is soo good for the baby, but no one else can help. I mean I am literally attached to Ellie because she needs to eat every 2-3 hours. So next week I am going to bust out the ol' breast pump...we'll see how that goes. I'm actually pretty nervous about it. I mean I already feel like a cow, but now I will actually have a machine milking me. Formula is already looking pretty tempting...
Eliana is constantly growing and she makes the cutest faces and sounds. Erik and I just stare at her a lot, which I'm sure makes her wonder if we have anything better that we could do. We love her, and are enjoying watching her grow.
Slowly I am trying to come up for air
