Wow, two years. I guess there isn’t a whole lot to write about when its just you two. Now it’s the three of us. Ryker Stephen Kainz arrived at 5:37 am on Monday, April 7, 2014. 8 pounds 3 oz and 20.5 inches long. Labor wasn’t terribly long, but I sure as shit didn’t do natural like I had planned. BRING ON THE DRUGS!! And I had a FANTASTIC epidural. Like “should my arms be getting numb” kind of epidural. They sat me up pretty quick after I mentioned that. The picture about is his poop face. He poops then makes a face that says “was that me”? Yes it was and usually in a clean diaper. It’s been 9 days and we are doing well so far. I managed to go to the grocery store yesterday with Ryker and I made supper while he slept on dad. It’s amazing how nice it felt to make supper, something that I sometimes find annoying. We are currently working on nursing and figuring out why he might be fussy or just letting him fuss for a few minutes. Hard on mom for sure, but when he only cries for like 10 minutes a day, that’s pretty good. It’s hard to get anything done during the day as I just want to snuggle him all the time. He loves a good snuggle! Can’t wait to see how he’ll grow and what kind of person he will turn into.
Two years and lots of change April 16, 2014
