The first couple of days were "cake". I thought that adoption was the way to go! (Well, duh. I can't do it any other way..) Beyond that thought, I wasn't tired (yet) or physically burdened from childbirth. In other words, I felt great! Little did I know that being a new mom would indeed catch up with me. The first week was uneventful - for the most part. Eat, poop, sleep, repeat cycle.
