POP! (when the bubble of having a baby begins to go)

You know when you have your leg cut off?  And it hurts like crazy?  And you think you’ll never walk again?  But then you get your fake leg?  And at first it kills too?  But somehow you get used to it?  And then eventually walking around with your fake leg becomes so ‘normal’ that it’s like you never had a real leg to begin with?  Yeah well, that’s what it’s like over here.

Baby #2 (weighing in at a whopping 10lbs 5oz) was like a hurricane that blew into our lives wreaking havoc and destruction and a sense of, ‘Oh crap, what have we gotten ourselves into?”  But as days and nights roll over us and then into one another, and time passes, and his sweet little personality emerges, I’m kind of digging it.  Granted, I’ve got my mom here so when she leaves I’m up a tree with no paddle…

But I definitely heard a pop just the other day.  A sign that life is starting to regain a new sense of normalcy.  Not that it will last or that the hurricane of chaos has gone far, but so far, so good.  I think.  I hope.  Oh man, tell me this is not just sleep deprivation.
