Boots, thanks for bringing this up. Like everyone else, I'm feeling a lot more complete these days. I was a little worried how this change would affect me since I have an insanely flexible schedule where I've always done whatever I wanted pretty much whenever I wanted. Now it takes me days to do laundry and I have to actually schedule workouts instead of going when I want. But instead of feeling a sense of loss, I feel really happy and at peace. Early on I felt a little stifled, I'll be honest, but now that we're in a groove and I can finally understand her cues, we're in this sort of happy Zen place and I love it. Some things that have surprised me are that I don't get upset with her the way I was worried I would. If she's crying and I can't figure out how to fix it I'll get upset, but I'm much more patient and gentle with her than I was expecting.
And while I know it's only been 7 weeks, I can say that DH and my relationship is even better than before. I was terrified after talking with friends that the marriage would inevitably take a hit after having the baby, but in our case we are much closer. Of course, there are still little arguments about housework and so on, but we've totally bonded by staring at this little creature we made and just loving every second.
