Getting Settled


Amazing how times flies. Tomorrow Ellie will be 2 weeks. Already we are noticing little changes in her. In case you were wondering she has mastered getting what she wants. Looks like she had no trouble at all tapping in to what makes Mom & Dad tick. Everything has been going great. At her checkup last Monday she weighed 7lbs 7oz. (she was 6lbs 13oz when she left the hospital). Needless to say she is getting plenty to eat. Sleeping has been pretty good too. She seems to be getting in to a little routine. It's pretty nice for me. Everything seems completely normal and healthy. As for me.... I have been feeling great. Everything is healing as it should and I am well rested thanks to Grandma Hill. It has been so great to have her around to help out for these first couple of weeks. Joey is doing great too. He went back to work on Wednesday and seems to be handling the change just fine. Granted he does look a little sleepier than usual, but all in all he is doing great. There are a few things we have discovered as parents. The main one is never say you won't do something. Inevitably you will do it. I have had so many opinions and things I swore I would never do that have flown out the window. When it comes down to it I guess you just do what works and hope to get through the day without crying curled up in a ball in the bottom of your shower. Luckily I have not ended up like this, but I'm not going to say I haven't been close. All I can say is thank heavens for pacifiers... always burp the baby with a burp rag... and if people offer help, take it. Parenting is for sure not a one person job. With the help of family, friends, amazing spouses, and awesome grandma's these last two weeks have been beautiful. Thanks to everyone. Will update as soon as I get a moment :). Love you!
