Amazing, Alarming.................

He's here, Mr. Simon! He arrived on 7/17 early in the morning, or rather late in the night if you take into account that I went into the hospital 10 hours before he actually came. We keep commenting that it's amazing we've only known him for four days. On one level it feels like we've always known him, and on all the other levels we have no idea what we are doing and have never had such a foreign experience as understanding what a baby needs or wants. Many people already know this, but the lack of sleep is equivalent to nothing I've ever experienced. I'm somewhere between exhausted, delusional and ready to collapse, but I'll just keep going like everyone else does. His eyes are open and I don't want to miss a minute of it!
