It was a close call though - Calli only gave me about a 3 minute window.

I'm still in the house ALL THE TIME. I feel a lot better in general but when I get ready, or go out, or pick up around the house, I end up with a back ache and/or headache quite quickly. At least hanging around the house is exciting these days. A cute baby to cuddle, trying to figure out how I can get a nap everyday to make up for the night before, and for the last few days I've been slowly adding in some computer work on the couch. I have an itch to really clean the house but I think that will only last until I actually CAN clean the house and then my motivation will surely subside.
I had a special day yesterday without leaving home. My friends stopped by as they drove thru Reno. This is Calli's friend Noah - friends because her mom and I have been friends since college. We worked in Colorado together at a Christian outdoor camp. She taught me how to be a backpacker. Noah is 14 hours younger then Calli. Kristina (his mom) was in labor for weeks but I still managed to beat her after my 2 hour labor/delivery. Sorry friend! :)
Tonight I'm in my sweats (oh yeah I always am) settling in for some Mom-made-meatloaf (my family and friends have sent so many meals - they rock!) and I'm going to put in a photo order to start documenting Calli. Did I mention - I LOVE HER! I'm just glad I don't have to have any more babies - Doctor advised, Tim and I approved! The babies I have now are perfect.
