First two weeks
The first two weeks home with Emma are pretty much a blur. Jason and I were exhausted and just trying to keep our heads above water. I was also trying to breastfeed, which turned out to be much harder than I thought. After 3 weeks, we completely switched to formula. This in itself seemed to make life with an infant a little easier. This way we could take turns with the feedings and each have some time to sleep. Looking back now, I don't know how we managed through this time, it was sheer survival mode. I miss Emma being super small, but I'm thankful for a better grasp of caring for an infant.
