Some photos from our first full weekend home as a family of four! I have to say, two kids is NO JOKE, you guys. It is exhausting and emotional at times (but that’s postpartum in a nutshell, really) and also absolutely exhilerating and incredible at the same time (again- postpartum). Zack and I have yet to really fall into our groove, but I know it will come. For now, we’re just pretty much in survival mode. Lots of late nights and weird nap times and looots of cups of coffee and snuggling babies. It’s not too bad, really. Can’t complain too much. ;)
Our neighbors, God bless ’em, put together a meal train for our first week home, and oh my gosh it was the best thing ever!! Each night for 8 nights, we didn’t have to worry about our dinners! And neighbors brought SO MUCH FOOD that we have a bunch frozen. I’m talking, whole lasagnas, a bunch of soup and rolls and salads. Oh gosh, I am still blown away by their sweetness. It really made our first week home that much easier, not having to worry about meals! Not sure what we did to deserve such incredible neighbors, but I’m definitely thankful for them!
Matching with my baby girl! This is what dreams are made of, guys. :)
Sophie had her two day check up, and the pediatrician confirmed once again for us that she is 100% perfect! :) Oh, it’s music to my ears, after hearing so much during my pregnancy that things could be very much NOT perfect. Thank God for her health!! I will never take that for granted. <3
We are still working on being gentle with baby sister. It’s definitely a constant struggle with Sam, as he doesn’t quite understand yet what she even IS, haha. ;) But he is digging all of the new toys around the house, like his old bouncer, which he spent quite some time in today. Love that silly crazy boy!
I found a bag of my old baby things that my mom had given me, and it was SO much fun (and yes, very emotional) going through it and pulling out all of these beautiful little things that I now get to put on my own baby girl. Gosh, I wish more than anything that my mom could be here. She would be so so happy. Finding these things and seeing them on Sophie in a small way makes it feel like my mom is here with us, though. And how sweet is this little lace bonnet?!
And Sam never ceases to make us laugh. He literally sat there with his arms behind his head like that, having us spoonfeed him lasagna. It. Was. Hilarious.
Annnnd it’s Monday! A new week! And I am officially back to blogging full-time! :) Albeit, probably mostly about my babies- hope you don’t mind. ;)
