That's right, folks! Today was my first day alone with Ava. I've been very fortunate in that D has been able to take time off to be home with us, and for the couple days he wasn't able to miss, my mother was here, which is how 18 days have passed and just now have I had a day alone with my sweet little baby girl.
The day was actually quite a success. I managed to shower, do my hair, fold a load of laundry and eat all before noon. That's not too bad, eh? I considered vacuuming, but I am actually harboring a bit of a cold and feel like complete crap, so I vetoed that idea.
Ava's been a champ today, making everything easier on me. She's nursed well, managed to allow me time to pump after each feeding, and hasn't pooed through any clothing or towels. Miracle!
I also managed to watch an entire disc of Everwood. Laugh if you must, but D and I pick TV shows to watch from beginning to end on DVD, and needless to say, this is one he doesn't feel he's missing out on while at work.
Happy Friday, everyone!
