Actually I would have been back last week if it weren't for the holiday. I started cooking the day I got out of the hospital. I feel great. I bested my childbirth time by half. With my older son, my water broke and he showed up about 8 hours later. With this one, they broke my water and started the induction at 10:45am and he was born at 2:26pm. But this time, I managed to get my epidural in just under the wire (I was actually fully dialated when it was put in place but no one knew - THANK GOD!). God bless whoever invented the epidural. I pushed for an hour with my older son and 26 minutes with this one.
The biggest difference was how I felt afterwards though. After my oldest, my best friend was an inflatable blue donut pillow. This time I don't even feel like I gave birth (well I didn't until I pushed my luck and walked the baby around our hilly neighborhood twice today).
Here's Daniel (or Baby Dan as his big brother calls him):
Recipes will be back starting tomorrow. I'll probably be posting somewhat regularly until I go back to work. After that, well, things might slow down a bit.
