life-changing events

So much happened since I last wrote. I had our baby two weeks early (his due date is in two days), and that pretty much changed everything about me and my life.

Here he is:

His name is Rhys Christopher, and he is pretty much the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. I know I’m biased, but I still think it’s the truth.

He’s ten days old now, and the postpartum hormones are wreaking havoc on my life. There’s no way to understand just how devastatingly sad you feel after having a baby, nor is it possible for me to understand why. Rhys is the best baby ever and hardly ever cries, but he struggles with breastfeeding. That makes everything even more difficult.

For now, I’m putting a hold on posting to this blog. I just don’t have time or desire right now. Maybe after I come out of this postpartum fog, things will be different, but for now, no posting here for a while.

We do have a family blog where we post updates and pictures fairly regularly. If you’re interested in reading me there, send me an email (hollijkr [at] gmail [dot] com) and I’ll be happy to send you the link.

And if you have any advice for the postpartum blues, let me know.
