Little Miss Ady - One Week Old

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.

Going Home

Welcome home little sister!

Welcome Home

We said goodbye to one nana...

Nana Moes

and hello to another.

  Nana Curtis

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.  

One Week Old

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!

Seriously, are any of us surprised you look so good?! Don't you love that first time of getting ready after having a baby? It makes you feel like you can do it all. Adyson is so adorable and precious. I can't believe how much hair she has and that it's brown, it's so cute. You are so right about enjoying those sleepness nights, it goes by way too fast and each baby makes you realize that more. You are so amazing and doing such a great job. I love you.

For the hundredth time, you look amazing! She is beautiful! I have to say that I never experienced the life slowing down part after a baby. I wish! And you already got to put on normal clothes and makeup and get hours in a row of sleep?? Jealous!
