Geffen: First Week

March 5, 2013

A Whirlwind

After Geffen was born, we had some visitors at the hospital. The rest of the time was spent learning how to feed and care for him while getting no sleep. The rest of the week was a bit of a blur with the days and nights meshing together. After all, a newborn is constantly nursing or needs to be changed. We took a lot of photos and some videos since I didn’t want to forget these precious moments… and as difficult as these first days were, the challenge of it all brought Dan and I so close. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that it was even romantic as we were nesting and bonding as a family and working together as a team. This was an incredibly intimate time and the feeling of being together, building our family was absolutely amazing.

I’m posting this seven weeks after the fact, since there was absolutely no time to blog right when Geffen was born; and as I look back on these early photos and videos of Geffen I’m moved by how quickly he has changed already and how valuable these photos are! Time moves so fast. Too fast.

Once we got home, it was a non-stop nursing, diaper-changing marathon. I slept when Geffen slept… and Dan found us sleeping in the same position so he snapped this photo with his phone!
