You know how time can fly and crawl all at the same time?
I can't believe our little girl is two weeks old already.
On the other hand, I can't imagine life without her. Has it only been two weeks?
Too state the obvious, we have enjoyed the last two weeks.
new baby adjustments have went smoother than I ever expected. It had
been five years since we had a newborn in our home. Then our
oldest child had just turned five. Now our oldest is nine. What a
difference. I have trustworthy babysitters on call at all times. She
barely gets laid in bed during daylight hours. I can get a shower or
take a nap without one ear cocked open for a baby cry.
that we are hearing many cries. Ed says this is our best baby yet, and I
agree, though I keep thinking that I shouldn't expect this to last. At
night she wakes up and makes some grunting noises when it is time to
eat, then goes right back to sleep after being fed.
Even if she does turn into a fussy baby eventually, it has been wonderful to have a content baby these first weeks.
And for all those who have asked...we did not have
our baby at home. I know, the photos from the birth announcement post
look like they were taken at home, and they were. We always ask for
early discharge and since the birth had went very well, I was able to
come home just after noon, almost 12 hours after her birth. I love to be
able to rest in my own home.
again for all your well wishes and prayers for our family. Please keep
praying that we can raise these dear children for the glory of God.
