Back to Ploughing
She weighed 3.16kgs at birth and was lovely and squooshy with wrinkly hands. She's still lovely, of course, but even after just one week she has lost some of that newborn wrinkliness.
Heart (very) full.
Why 'Back to Ploughing'? In Pearl S. Buck's The Good Earth the main character's wife, Olan, delivers all her children on her own in their little house and then gets straight back to the fields.I figured that if Olan could do that then I (despite feeling a little nervous in the early stages of labour) would be fine delivering my baby with the support of Mr Duyvken, lovely midwives, the ob who has delivered all the duyvkens and great medical facilities right there just in case anything went awry. And, even though I didn't get right back to ploughing I kind of felt like I could. Our bodies are amazing.
