So, so say a lot has happened since I've last updated here is a bit of a gross understatement. My last entry was chronicling the final hours leading up to the big trip to the hospital. At this moment, I'm typing with my 1 month old daughter sleeping (snoring) in her sling hanging from my neck. I feel that there were too many experiences to try to recap them all now. I've just been too busy to fill in the blanks over the past few weeks. Too many emotions, too little sleep - - and when I do have the free time, I didn't want to be strapped to the keyboard. Most know my "delivery story", so I really don't feel the need to recap that once again, and I'm eager to start updating on our present-day life. We're learning on our feet and Leta seems to be thriving, so we can't be screwing up too badly. :)
Leta's pretty much amazing. Her little personality is coming out more and more each and every day. Her physical abilities change from day to day as well, which always leaves me wondering what she'll blow me away with next. I'll deal with a few hours of crying just to see one smile creep across her face (which, luckily, we don't have to deal with that often, incidentally). I'm heartbroken that a month has already gone by, because I can only imagine how quickly the rest of them will go as well. Never has my life seemed more meaningful to me. Let's start there. I'll try to start updating again regularly, as I'd like to start chronicling Leta's life with us for my own memory. In the meantime here are the vitals and some pictures of how she's grown over the past month:
