First Week Home

Well we've been home for a week now and I'm just now getting around to blogging. Imagine that, I think I may be saying that a lot. :). Things are going well. Just trying to figure out the whole feeding and sleeping thing. She is really such a blast and we can't get enough kisses from her. She sleeps 3-4 hr stretches and I have to consistently wake her up to eat. I'm assuming she will be waking me up to eat before to long.
We had a check up on Monday and she had gained 3oz back which made me pretty excited. I was happy to know she wasn't still starving. This coming Monday we will go again and hopefully she will be back close to her birth weight.
Here was our coming home day from the hospital last Thursday!

I also realized I never got around to posting pics of her nursery, that's because I finished it on Friday and had her on Monday. Nothing like last minute finishing details. Although I'm sure she won't be using that room for awhile but I feel better having it completed.
So hopefully I will get around to taking some pics and posting them soon!

For now we are just taking it all in and figuring out our new normal. We are still overwhelmed that God chose us to be her parents. I just keep looking at her wondering how people don't believe in miracles, because that is what she for sure is and we are so grateful.

Thank you all for your sweet comments, we are truly blessed!

I stumbled upon your blog today while looking for resources for infertility in Northwest Arkansas, where I also live. My husband and I have now been struggling with the disappointments of infertility for 17 months. It was so comforting to read about someone going through a similar battle and I really appreciate you sharing your story. Congratulations on your beautiful little gift from God!

I found your blog through other blogs awhile back. Your journey has ended (began) with a beautiful baby girl!
