Tales of a New Mommy

I had this whole long post typed out but when I went back and read it, it sounded like I was on a rant. Which isn't bad, it's just not how I intended it to sound. Mommyhood is exhausting and my girl is putting me through the ringer, but I have never been happier. Which wasn't necessarily coming out in the post I had originally typed up. So, I'll save you the stories about poopy diapers and feeding times, and give you this:


My now 6lb sweetheart! Well, she's probably more than that now, since it was a few days ago she was weighed. It's been so fun to have her home. Exhausting, but so right. It took her a few days to acclimate, but now she's totally used to being here. I spend a ton of time during the day just staring at her. I can't believe how beautiful and perfect she is! I've only taken a few pictures since she's been home. One was a really sweet pic of her snuggling with her daddy. Unfortunately, Jared told me that I was never to post that pic on the blog, since it was taken first thing in the morning and he was still in his pj's. So... you can just imagine it I guess. I'll eventually take another one when he has his face on. ;-)

I'm totally in love with my girl and am so grateful for the chance I have to be her mother. Once I figure out what the heck I'm doing, it will be even more enjoyable. Thank goodness she will never remember what an idiot I was as a first time mother!

She is so cute! Don't feel bad about your almost rant. You're allowed to blow off some steam. Soon this will all feel second nature to you!

She really is beautiful. I'm so happy that she's home...I was going to call the other day to ask how things are going but I never want to interrupt a feeding or something...so maybe I'll send a text or something :)

Your little girl is beautiful! I read the adventure you went through to get her here, and the only word that came out of my mouth at the end was WOW. You are incredible and so is Janae. She is so blessed to have such wonderful parents and you are truly blessed to have her. I'm so glad to know that she is home and doing well, otherwise I'd probably be in tears right now. Congratulations, you have a beautiful family. Oh, and it was great to meet you and get to know you a little bit tonight :)
