After he was born, there were breastfeeding issues, his acid reflux, sleep deprivation, and post-partum depression. I was a mess. I remember looking at Nick one night after Sam had finally drifted off to sleep on my chest and saying I felt like a shell of my former self.

I was so sad. The overwhelming joy I felt when I held Sam for the first time had faded into a fog.

Pasta with peas, eggs, and cheese.
Grilled steak and onions with olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
Portuguese fish stew with mussels, clams, shrimp, and King crab legs. Fun fact- I'm allergic to crab. Found this out after devouring more than half of this bowl. Itchy palms=run to CVS for benadryl
Farewell, my spiny friend.
Nick also made some stellar stuffed mussels with spinach that are unpictured because we ate them too quickly. I *heart* muscles.
I'm lucky that my issues weren't anything that Lexapro and good food couldn't cure. To all new moms and dads out there- be kind to yourselves.
