My Sweet Thomas

Thomas Jeffrey Terzi is here!

He is one-week old today.  For his first doctor's visit, he has already regained his lost weight; he's back up to 8 ponds 13 ounces.  And it's no surprise; I'm nursing on-demand and his demand is high!  He nurses practically around the clock.

He's already doing well at night; he sleeps in two-three hour spurts, which I am extremely happy with.

I even drove to my kids' school to pick them up.  Not bad for six-days post-partum.

Of course, I've been having my ups and downs, but I'm being kind to myself.  I'm giving myself a break.

But for everyone who said adding one more child to two is no big deal, I do have to say an adamant, what are you KIDDING me?!

It is total pandemonium.  It is heartbreaking to see 21-month old Cole "jealous," although most of the time he is so good with Thomas--petting him and offering him food and toys.  It may just be an act to distract us so he can stick pushpins in him when we turn away.

I'm also happy to say that I've been feeling very creative.  I wrote my first poem in years.  Crazy!

Now I just have to keep up the momentum!
