The first month  
It's hard to believe that it was a month ago today that my son was born.  It truly flew by in the blink of an eye.  I suppose I've gotten myself on some type of schedule and am coping with the changes better now.  He isn't sleeping through the night yet, but I usually get 3 hours between feedings, so its bad, but not horribly so.  I'm not as exhausted as I thought I'd be.  Don't get me wrong, I'm tired, but I can function on some level. 

I still can't believe that this little human was inside me, that I made another life.  It's crazy just sitting back and watching his little mannerisms.  A personality is emerging.  A very hungry personality.  The little guy sure loves to eat.  He weighs 11 pounds already.  11!  My arms are feeling the strain.  He's taking after my brother who weighed 22 pounds when he was 6 months. 

And its hella expensive to give birth.  I checked on the claims submitted to my insurance and...you may want to sit down for this--the hospital billed over $11,000 for their services, the anesthesiologist billed over $3,000 for my epidural, and my doctor billed over $4,000.  That makes the grand total over 18k to have a child.  I don't know how much that varies state to state, but here in New York, birth will set your insurance company back 18k.  My mind boggles at the thought of paying that out of pocket.



My little angel.  ^__^

So cute! And yes, the medical industry is outrageously expensive. Good thing you had the insurance. A whole month went by already? It really is amazing when you consider it all, huh? ;)

Yeah, it really is amazing. The whole pregnancy zoomed by and before I know it, he'll be walking and talking. I feel like my life suddenly jumped into the fast lane again. I was in limbo, marking time for so long, waiting for the next step in life and it sure caught up to me with a vengeance. It's all good, though^^

Hopefully his first word won't be the F word. I have a bad habit of using it like it were a comma.

And check my latest entry for your request fulfillment.^^
