Laura and I are quickly realizing the task intensity of the first few weeks after Peter is born. We have decided that this may be one of those times that we will thank God for the supportive friends we have living nearby (in addition to our family).
It is important for the development of close friendships to occasionally become vulnerable enough to ask for help when it is truly needed. A warm meal, a quick visit, the opprotunity for a nap or even a well placed complement could really be helpful.
On a side-note, based on the experience of others, I'm sure we'll get plenty of other advice like comments, well placed and otherwise.
Anyway, I guess we just wanted to say that OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY ARE AWESOME AND WE WANTED TO THANK YOU IN ADVANCE because we might be too tired after the fact.
