These last few days have been full of a lot of firsts for us. There are the cute firsts like baby's first sneeze, and baby's first doctor's appointment and baby meeting gramma and grandpa for the first time. Then there are the firsts that just make you want to laugh and cry at the same time. Like for example wiping poop in your own hair. Or baby's first bath - I'm sure we traumatized him with that one. Or getting to the point where you are sure you are going to run out of your house in your meshy maternity underwear because you just don't think you can handle being so responsible for something so precious. The firsts are coming and going so fast I can't keep track. Tomorrow early morning Henry will be a week old, and while everyday that goes by my life gets exponentially easier I wish I could slow it all down to a halt and hold him in my arms forever.
