One Week...

Although sleep deprived, we truly enjoyed our first week with our little girl. She is a blessing to be with even at 3am. We've introduced her to Max and Molly and it went better than we could have imagined. Max is in love and stays by her side at all times. If she makes any sound, he runs straight to her and checks her by giving kisses. Today we went to the doctor and checked her eyes due to alot of drainage and it appears it is just blocked tear ducts which we can clear up with an antibiotic cream. Tomorrow is her well baby check up. Adam is taking us next week to have her photos done for my Mother's Day gift. Other than that, we have just been hiding out at home together enjoying our time as a family.

After 19 hours of labor followed by a c-section, here are some photos of our new baby girl. We are so sorry we weren't able to keep better contact with everyone but it was a long stressful delivery and then we were two tired out parents trying to get the hang of it all.

4 Days Past Due...

So we are now at 4 days past due. We have another doctor appointment tomorrow afternoon and plan to schedule a date to be induced since Miss Madelyn has no plans at this point of appearing on her own. I've been spending time getting last minute things done but I'm quickly running out of things to do. Since we don't have any baby pictures yet, I am sharing our other "baby" photos that I took this morning. And yes, one does include the squirrel that comes to visit each day.
