He also eats a lot, so that helps with the snuggling.
I snapped a few shots with my iPod though, just so I had something to share.
We've pretty much adjusted to Life With New Baby. I bounced back a heck of a lot faster than I thought I would. By Tuesday I was pretty much back to doing things, albeit slowly still (it took me two days to wash laundry and it's still not folded). A bit sore still and I'm not exactly running, but I have been making meals and slowly doing chores. I am glad I got some ready to cook/eat things frozen - it helped a lot the first few days.
Ben went back to work Friday and changed his schedule a bit for this week to facilitate being home more during the day, which has been a tremendous help and relief. He takes such good care of us. We are both ready for the normal schedule again though, which we'll go back to on Monday.

Duder is adjusting better than I thought he would. While he's been a bit more snuggly and slightly crankier than usual, he isn't as upset as I was expecting him to be which I am thankful for. He likes to tell me "That's the baby" and that "those wipies/diapers/clothes/etc. are for the baby". They all like to tell me that the baby is "so cute" and they want to pet him and give him kisses. It's very sweet and I'm so glad it's not "Kill the intruder!".
I feel like I have so much energy and there are so many things I want to do, but I am telling myself to take it slow and let myself return to completely normal and recovered before I try to go crazy. I tried doing too much too fast with Duder and I think it took longer to recover than it should have. So I will just enjoy the time to sit and "relax" with this little guy. I really want to exercise though, but it's only been a week.
I have been reading a lot (not much else to do while nursing :) ), and knitting a bit. I am working on a shawl design that I started before Corbin came, and I am so very excited about it. I am hoping to find a tech editor for this pattern though, so it will probably be awhile before I release it. Especially since it's slow going. I also put a few rows on the blue blanket when I get a chance. It's just funny how knitting is so not a huge desire right now when I have a baby to sniff (gosh, he smells so good). I have a ton of ideas for new designs though, so hopefully you'll be seeing some new stuff over the next few months.
Is anyone else excited for Easter? I have been waiting for Easter since January. I don't know why I'm looking forward to it so much this year, but I am. Also, I want to plant seeds something awful, but something tells me I should hold off just a bit longer. Maybe I'll start some seedlings on the windowsill though...
