I’m doing okay. How are you? Ricardo: I wanted to call and congratulate you on the birth of your new baby. Zuly: Thanks a lot. Carla was born three weeks ago, and she was 8 pounds, 3 ounces. Ricardo: That’s great! How does it feel to be a first-time parent? Zuly: It’s really overwhelming taking care of a newborn. I’m learning everything from scratch, everything from how to breastfeed and bottle-feed, to burping her, to putting her to bed, to using a car seat and a stroller. Ricardo: You sound overwhelmed. I remember when Adam, our first child, was born. There were the feedings in the middle of the night, and all of those diapers! Zuly: Exactly. I’m exhausted all the time. In fact, I find myself dozing off at all hours of the day. Ricardo: I really sympathize with you, but these days will pass quickly, and then you’ll have such great memories. Have you had much sleep? Zuly: Zzzzzzzz! Ricardo: Zuly? Zuly? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
