Hi, I'm Post-Partum.

I have this thing on my neck, a red blotch and it's spread a little. It itches like crazy and it hurts, too. The earliest appointment I could get with Dr. Gay is August 2nd. Bummer. The good news is, my sheitl covers it.

The nursing hurts a lot, I'm working hard on getting good latches. I'm sure this will pass.

Zalman looks plumper and juicier, such a change from the plucked-chicken newborn he was 2 weeks ago! I put him in the Baby Bjorn with his legs out for the first time this morning.

Srulik is still being obnoxious, but I'm trying to love him up (I could try harder). Rivky is being difficult, too. Chaya loves holding the baby and is a big help, although I think she forgets how fragile newborns are.

Yaakov, skip this part: I am weighing myself too frequently. My tummy looks like a puppy hanging off my body. I feel like a blob. Yaakov, DO NOT HIDE THE SCALE.

And to top it off, I haven't showered in 2 days.
