I'm so sorry for not responding to messages, and I want you all to know that you are in my heart always. I check on you guys every single day, and I am so happy to be a part of your exciting (and often taxing) pregnancy journeys! It has been incredibly difficult to find time to post messages here. Casey is quite a high-needs little girl, and it's taking all of Chris' and my time and energy to give her what she needs to be happy. Don't get me wrong; I am completely in love with my little girl, and LOVE parenting her. But she does NOT like to be put down, and since I'm breastfeeding her I'm on demand often. Luckily we are getting a good night's sleep, all things considered. Casey goes to sleep at about 10pm and nurses every 3 hours through the night until about 6am. Since she's in bed with us, that means I technically get nearly 8 hours of sleep. Realistically, it's more like 6 or 7 hours because I get up to change her and then have a little bit of awake time with each feeding. But overall we are doing awesome. Parenthood is quite a trip, and I wouldn't give it up for the world. I can't wait for all of you to be holding and loving your perfect little beans. I look forward to hearing your birth stories, and then the stories of your first days, weeks, and months of parenthood with them. Good luck to you all, and keep up the amazing work.
Attached are a few photos of Casey. They are in chronological order: The first one is shortly after coming home from the hospita (sorry for the up-the-skirt view) l, and the last one is from a couple of weeks ago (when Casey was about 4 weeks old).
OOps- sorry! I'm both incompetent and overzealous with computer images. That's a bad combination, and the result is that you got 3 copies of the same image and one dud image:)
