Baby Xavier is four weeks old!!! Here is my final Postpartum First Four Fridays series-Week 4.
High of the Week: Having friends and family come visit. From my sister @shayjsongbird
to college friends, sorors @queennurse
and frats @nupe2k
and lots of family, it has been my joy to introduce so many to our little human.
Low of the Week: Xavier screaming in the middle of the night. We figured it was gas and gripe water has been helping! Also being home alone for 12 hours a days has been hard. Now that we are fully moved and @bryonnotbyron
doesn't have to deal with getting us out of our old place things should be better but the honest truth is being home alone for that many hours is pretty lonely.
Best Resources: My mom has been very helpful even though she often drives me crazy. I'm
Workout: I went for a short walk this week. That's about it. No shame here!
Words of Wisdom/Advice: It's week 4 and I'm still experiencing soreness! SERIOUSLY!!! I started to freak myself out and then I had to take a deep breath and remind myself that even though some on the internet were fine and "fully healed" after 3 days, everyone is different. The internet and other people's experiences can be helpful and yet I'm reminded that comparison is the thief of joy. So I conclude this four week series by saying your journey is your own. Be honest about it, share it, and honor it. Everyday I'm learning something new about myself and while sometimes frustrating I know that I'll be a wiser better me as I embrace the lessons I'm learning. He is officially four weeks now and while this series is ending I'll continue to document his growth as well as my own on IG!
