three weeks ago today.

so, news flash, probably surprising absolutely no one: it's really hard to maintain a blog while caring for a newborn! a few photos from three weeks ago today:

i call this one what 11.5 hours of quick, intense labor on 2 hours of sleep followed by a hazy, ambien-induced night of sleep does to a person:


(i was still so jumpy & on such a huge rush many, many hours after giving birth that i wasn't able to fall asleep that night, hence the ambien from the night nurse, leading to priceless quotes from me such as, "are we going to scotland?" [i had just been talking about outlander a few hours before with two of my friends who came to visit us, one of whom had recently finished the book] & "is this a competition?", this latter question i asked while nursing norah, which i have absolutely no memory of doing. i do have a memory of seeing two of everything for a few minutes: two clocks on the wall, two dinner trays, two norahs...high times at roosevelt hospital!)

i call this one what 11.5 hours of labor on 2 hours of sleep followed by a hazy, ambien-induced night of sleep does to a person, part 2:



look at that sweet squisher face:


i love how you can see the bandaid on my arm in these photos, because it's so indicative of the state my body was in at the moment: i had been poked & stuck & fiddled with in so many places on my body that even now i can't remember them all. 


let's pull in real close on norah eliot:


newborn smooches:


& her fabulous hair:


we love our baby norah, & nothing is the same. <3
