Our first week at Home

Our first week at home has gone by pretty fast. We got home and my sister and Amelia came for a couple days followed by EZ's parents for a few days. Now everyone is gone and EZ and I have a few days to ourselves to hopefully get into a routine before he goes back to work on Monday.

I continue to be in awe of little Piper. I know all of us that have kids are all bias that we have the cutest baby, but I really do find her to be absolutely adorable.

Sleep is the only thing lacking in my happiness. Sleeping for a couple hours at a time just isn't conducive to functioning properly and have had a few emotional meltdowns where I was just so tired I needed to sleep. I know that it will get better though.

We had a weight check yesterday at the pediatrician and she is back up to 7 lbs already so by next week I imagine we will be back up to over our birth weight, so she is definitely eating enough!

I have been able to get out and walk everyday. It is getting easier and faster. I am up to walking 2 miles and feel good (other than it being really hot and humid out!) If all goes well the next few days, I might try jogging a few minutes next week.

Alright...enough updates. Here are a few pictures from the week:

Trying to crawl already??? :)

I love my daddy!

All bundled up after our bath.

Beautiful baby girl...wishing you some sleep, but hate to say it will be a while....Lilly gave us 9 hours straight at 10 weeks, so only 8.5 to go!

Love the pictures - she looks like a little papoose!

Give her a kiss from Papa.

Piper IS cute! And, yes, Mom's are programmed to adore our little ones, but so what? Hope you get a few snatches of uninterrupted sleep soon. After a while, you do kind of get used to it.
