2am on Friday, November 28. Where were you?
I was in a hospital bed, eating a much-appreciated sandwich, and about to get all the tape pulled off my arm and back from the IV and epidural. Caleb was getting his first bath, and Jon was capturing it on film through the security glass of the nursery. You can hear Jon yawn a couple of times; he hadn't had much sleep in several days.
The "uncut" version of this is in the works...but it's 14 minutes long and I can't seem to find a place that will host it. Most people don't want to see 14 minutes of a baby bath, but I know family will, so I'll keep working on it.
The songs playing are ones that I listened to all during labor and delivery...the first songs Caleb heard! He was actually born to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons." I remember because the dr. commented on it while Caleb was being born. I'd set up my playlist so lullabies would be playing when Caleb was born, but he was born a lot faster than I expected (once pushing started, at least)!
(Ooh, I'm giving you tidbits into The Story...maybe someday I'll get it all written out for you!)

As I put things in the closet, I tried them on for size. Skirts are wonderfully forgiving, so that was good. Pants, not so much, especially since I was outgrowing my pants before I was even pregnant. However, the good news is that I can wear about half of them (the bad news is that the other half are most of my dress pants). And I'm confident that I'll get back to a weight where I can wear them soon.
One funny note about switching from maternity to non is that I have to get used to zippers again! Maternity pants have those great stretchy bands of elastic, and I've tried a couple of times to pull my non-maternity pants off without undoing the button and zipper first! I wouldn't be surprised if I've walked around with my fly open and never even noticed it!
