We made it home from the hospital and all is well! I can't believe that one week ago today I was in labor with her, anticipating her arrival into the world and meeting her for the first time. A week can seem like an eternity! I feel like I get to know and understand more of her each day. Right now I am typing this one handed as I hold her. Such sweet times that I am loving... even when there is crying involved. Right now she can't decide if she wants to sleep or suck her binkie. What a life!
Her first week home.
Welcome home little sister!
We said goodbye to one nana...
and hello to another.
We admired her amount of dark, beautiful hair. The most hair any of our babies have had.
Sucked on binkies, whenever not nursing.
Adyson's mommy feels super good today.
After several nights of waking up every 2 hours to nurse (a couple of nights she stretched it to 3 hours) I finally got a much needed break. She slept from 11:00 - 4:00 and the again until 8:00. I was in Heaven!! I actually felt like getting dressed and putting makeup on to celebrate! I really am treasuring these times though. Even the feedings in the middle of the night. It's sweet quiet time that I get to spend with her. It doesn't last forever. They grow up way too fast! I love the calmness that a new baby brings and the way it makes everything in life slow down. I needed that reminder. We are all thankful for this beautiful gift our family has received!
