I'm still going to finish that blog post that got lost -- I started rewriting it and got sidetracked nine hours ago -- but I just wanted to let you all know that I am doing much better tonight. My fantastic husband took the baby all afternoon and let me take a long nap and do my sitz bath. The two of them drank beer and watched The Godfather all afternoon, which is so adorable. He knew I needed a break, and didn't even ask; he just disappeared with her and let me be alone for a while. I appreciate it so much.
I am feeling much better and ready to face another sleepless night.
And as requested...a photo with cute feet.
And penguins! That kid's on the road to geekdom! Woot!
She really is adorable. I can't tell you how happy I am for the entire Grok family.

She's so pretty, Sarah.

Next ... her cute hands! She's trying to hide them, but I can see them!
Her cheeks are so rosy. Are they always like that?
She seems to be sleeping. I hope you can find such peace.
I'm glad your husband's back to father her.
I wrote this comment in Google Chrome which isn't compatible with the paragraphing function of your blog. So I switched to MSIE (argh) to post it ... only to discover I had closed the Chrome tab with this text in it. ARGH.
I hope you're composing your new post outside a browser. One reason why I usually type comments within a browser is that it's annoying to paste plain text comments and add formatting (bold, italic) and links by hand later - it's easier to format as I type.

What a beautiful child! Glad you got some sleep so you can enjoy your family more. I'm so glad your husband got to get home for her birth and is able to share in the baby duties and joys. In the military, that's not always possible, but I'm glad he got there. It means a lot.

I can't look at that picture for too long, or I'll end up with massive baby fever! She's so adorable. Ditto what everyone has been saying about slowing down, focusing on yourself and the baby, and letting go of all but the most essential jobs (eating, sleeping, feeding). The two of you will eventually settle into a rhythm, and life will take on some semblance of normalcy. For now, try to rest and kiss those little toes frequently! :-)

She is sooo cute! Congrats!

She 'almost' makes me want to have another baby. Till I see my kids current college tuition bills... Sigh. Still, I adore them when they are still so little. Glad to see your husband is treating you so nicely. They are both definitely keepers and I can see why you didn't throw either of them back.

She is SO beautiful! You and Russ make pretty babies!

Sarah and Russ, Oh, she is so beautiful. I know you must be totally exhausted but that will change so save lots of pictures so you can go back and appreciate those first few days. I know your mom, Sarah, will be crying all the way home. Jane

She has a delicious nose too! Not just feet ... thought I'd point out the obvious for you ...
