wow

Charlotte, C and I are doing well. C started working exactly one week after Charlotte's birth, so the baby and I are on our own during the day. She had some trouble latching, so we spent two whole weeks pumping every drop I could and feeding it to her from a bottle. Between pumping, feeding, washing pump parts, and staring in awe at my daughter, I haven't slept much. Latching isn't perfect yet, and I still pump about half the time to give my extremely sore nipples a break, but things are improving. Birth story soon... I promise. After a nap, maybe.

Love love love to you, C, and Charlotte. It's worth every minute of it all, isn't it?

I've been thinking about you so so much, and it is so good to hear from you! I cannot imagine the TIRED, but am happy you are finding your way through the feeding quagmire- I hope you'll be able to sleep a little in between, read about breast feeding while lying down to at least "rest"-- not sure if that is possible if your nipples are on fire or bruised to the core-- but wanted to pass it along.

Sending lots of love,
xoxo
