Nine days in and completely in love...

So we've survived our first week with a newborn. 
It seems like everyday gets a bit easier, which is encouraging because it's been pretty hard. 
But the love I feel for this tiny little being is all-consuming, and beyond any other love I have ever felt before - There is nothing I wouldn't do for him. 
It amazes me how instantly attached parents become to their babies. I guess that's nature's way of protecting them.

I am completely overwhelmed with gratitude... that I have a healthy baby boy, that breastfeeding is going remarkably smoothly, that I have the world's best husband and an incredibly supportive family.
Life is very good indeed!

Have a wonderful weekend, and a very happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family.
