After only three days of life I'm ready to proclaim that Lucy is pretty much the best baby ever. We came home from the hospital on Thursday afternoon, despite my earlier assertions that I was staying until Friday and taking it easy. It's hard to relax when the entire nursing staff wants to check your ass for hemorrhoids every two hours. If I didn't have any then, do you really think I'm going to have some now? Leave my bum alone, for christ sakes! So we came home. Thursday night was a bit of a drag because my milk hadn't come in yet, and it took five hours of suckling before Lucy gave up and went to sleep. But on the bright side, a solid five hours of nipple stimulation got the job done and I am all filled up with milky goodness. Last night was a dream. She went to sleep around 10pm, I woke up and fed her at 1:30 and 5, and we both woke up rested and refreshed at 8. SOB is actually more tired than I am because he has a cold and is on Sam patrol in the mornings.

She is a darling little thing, isn't she?
