Is he precious or what?? Man, I just want to squeeze those cheeks!
The guys tell me all is well back at home. They're settling back into a routine and Tomas and Honza are loving every second of fatherhood (how could you not with a kid that cute??).
Me, well I'm doing great! I was supposed to have my 6-week post-partum check up today but I had to reschedule it due to a bit of an issue with my tooth. Let's just say I'm looking forward to a nice $4,000 dental implant next week. Yes, that's one tooth. Be jealous. (I will get you more on that story in a few...here's your teaser: bungee cord)
Besides that, I really am doing great! Emotionally I'm MUCH better than I was a few weeks ago. It was sure tough to say goodbye to the guys, but knowing that I'll see them again makes it easier to deal with. We were able to Skype with them last week and it's always great to "see" them. Yeah, I wish I could have them over for beer and pizza, but we'll be able to do that again some day...
Physically, I'm awesome. I've been walking every day, watching what I eat and overall I feel fantastic! Hearing the words "you look great" on a semi-regular basis sure feels pretty damn good.
Oh, and as of this morning, I had 2.8 gallons (364 ounces) of breast milk stored up!! (for those on the metric system, that's 10.7 liters). That's a lot, eh?? I've been working hard on pumping and it feels so awesome to have that much stored up. I will be donating it to a preemie milk bank and feel pretty great about that. My plan is to continue for a few months--sure, it takes up a lot of time and it's slightly annoying to have to wake up in the middle of the night to pump, but if I can help some preemie babies out, that's all worth it to me.
So, the 6 week mark is pretty great overall. Jáchym is growing like a weed, the guys are loving their daddy roles and I'm doing fantastic.
