our first days with harvey...

 i'm feeling so behind in life the last couple of weeks! i know things will adjust and there will be a new normal soon, but right now i just feel like my mind is going in a million different directions. we were very much in a newborn haze those first days- i felt amazing for the most part (other than the boobs. i. hate. breastfeeding.). mike was around. we had our moments of tears and sheer chaos, but week 1 was a-ok compared to week 2...

my parents surprised us and came out for a visit earlier this week- the kids were in heaven. i came down with my worst case of mastitis to-date (and i've dealt with A LOT of mastitis over the years)- it's been awful. it just wouldn't break. breastfeeding in general is really difficult for me physically and mentally, but the aches, fever, chills, and extreme headache that never goes away on TOP of the constant feeding, pumping, and trying to survive has been incredibly taxing. the best way for me to feel like i'm regaining control is to get things cleaned up, and organize some of the pictures i have from the last couple weeks- there are SO MANY! here are a few from the days around harvey's birth...
this is what life looked like the morning harvey was born- jude in his undies at 5am. watching the ipad with his feet. laying on the floor. below is while we waited for friends to meet and grab the kids, just before heading to the hospital...
 just after the taxi brought us home from the hospital, i grabbed the ergo and we went on a walk to pick up the kids from the park.
 harvey had his first subway ride, took his first uber, visited times square (not really intentionally), visit to bryant park, and chick-fil-a experience at 3 days old. busy day.

and a little look at what our spacious apartment looks like in the mornings... all that ROOM (compared to a uterus)! ;)
