backdated

3/24/09: I wrote the following post on Saturday night but didn't publish it because I didn't have time to finish it to my satisfaction. I'm only just now returning to it. This mom gig is really time-consuming! 

It's still not anything special, but it was written during a special time, so here it is:

That's right, I said there's a baby sleeping on my chest. Bliss. :-)

Elliot has been home now for just over 24 hours and I couldn't capture those hours in words if I tried. Phrases like "sleep deprived" and "head over heels in love" and "overwhelmed" and "terrified" and "awestruck" simply don't seem adequate in this application.
