So far, all of my friends have been amazingly generous with advice & offers of assistance, which really is quite wonderful.   Thank you to everyone!
The one solid piece of advice that keeps appearing, however, is sleep.  "Sleep all you can", they say.  "Once you are on the other side, sleep is like a mirage in the desert"...  

Last night we got a sneak preview into the world of baby-induced sleep deprivation, and it wasn't a lot of fun.  Meg woke up in the middle of the morning, and me soon after - I couldn't help but be a little impressed at how strong our little baby is!  After that, though, it was an hour of wishing he'd go back to sleep, followed by two hours of wishing I'd go back to sleep.  

So obviously I won't be able to 'know' just how truly terrible it really is yet, but I'm getting the idea.  The fact that everyone has been telling me this one same thing must make it pretty important...
