we haven't had internet at home for a few days (i'm at the library right now) so the birth story will have to wait. i'm going to begin writing it out so that my post-pregnancy brain doesn't forget all the details!
things are going really well here, tristan has been an absolutely perfect older brother; no signs of jealousy at all. he is super affectionate and gentle towards samuel. samuel is (so far) a pro at sleeping and eating. he is a bit jaundiced, so i'm trying to get a bit more food into him right now, but his nights have been pretty good, which i'm so thankful for.
my mom is here right now and my dad arrives tomorrow. as soon as our internet is back, i'll be on here posting the birth story, which was much different than i expected, but of course has a happy ending :)
