Brendan turned one week old today. Claire and I can’t believe it’s only been one week. It feels more like 1 month. Last night all we could think about was what we were doing a week ago. How much pain Claire was in or how we couldn’t wait for him to be born. What a week it has been. We went from young married couple to parents in an instant. I’m a parent! Wow, that sounds wierd. We are very lucky to have Claire’s Mom here to help us out for the first week and next. It’s nice to have an extra set of hands. When we go to change him sometime, it reminds me of a surgery with some many hands around one person. My Mom comes out the for 2 weeks after she leaves. After that, we’re on our own. I’m not too worried at this point. I think we’ll be able to manage. This past week has been filled with lots of firsts. It’s been both exhilarating and exhausting but I wouldn’t trade it for the World.
