It’s been a whole week since little Charlie James made his debut, and what a week it has been! I’m glad that Brook has been able to keep everyone updated on this amazing week, and I’m also glad that I’m functional enough now to add my own thoughts to Charlie’s blog! 

Having Charlie at home has been a huge change, but one that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Since Brook and I were released from prision, er, the hospital on Monday, we’ve had a great time getting to know Charlie better, and getting in practice being new parents. While trying to heal up from the c-section is a major drag, there are enough distractions with Charlie to make the week quite interesting.

Among our distractions? The mystery of diaper engineering. Last night, as Brook has mentioned, we realized that Charlie had sprung a leak. We went through a lot of baby clothes, trying to figure out why on earth our baby just kept soaking through all of his diapers. This morning, I took it upon myself to try to figure out why the diapers weren’t water tight. So far, the only conclusion I’ve come up with is that we weren’t putting the diapers on tight enough. We were somewhat nervous about making them too tight, and in our caution, ended up making them too loose. So far the problem SEEMS to be mostly solved, but we’ll see what happens as we progress through more diapers.  🙂

In other news, Charlie is so incredibly adorable. I have never found any other little person or creature more captivating! Being a mom is more fun than I would have imagined, and while I am tired out and sore right now, there is still utter enjoyment to be found in changing tiny diapers and clothes, and talking to a tiny person with big, bright eyes and a sweet baby smell. I am entirely looking forward to this wonderful parenthood journey with Brook, and can’t wait to experience everything that is waiting for us.
