A little over a month has passed since Elly was born yet still normal life still has not yet been resumed.
There has been no knitting, sewing, or card making. Only 3 dishes have been cooked up: bread pudding, rice pudding and pancakes. All were made within the last week.
My main focus has been nursing Elly. Sometimes I manage to catch sleep in between her feedings. Sometimes I don’t.
I persevere through the long hours because this is my reward.
At Elly’s most recent check-up, the doctor confirmed what we had guessed: Elly has gained a lot of weight. She now weighs 11 lbs and measures 21.25″. You can really see the difference in her hands and her face.
Of course, I am thrilled with Elly’s continued good health. On the other hand, I am also chomping at the bit to resume some of my hobbies. Maybe soon, but I don’t want to rush things. Elly will only be this age once. I am trying to savor every moment.
