One Week Old Today!


Emma is one week today. This time last week I was getting ready to push... (glad that is over but so glad Amy and Mom were there to encourage me along!) This week has been a bit of a blur. No sleep, lots of feedings, even more dirty diapers and even more sweet kisses on our new baby girl. We prayed for her safe arrival and to have her in our arms is such a relief. We could never have imagined the love we would feel for her... it is truly incrediable!

Pop Pop and Gabby stayed through the weekend and Gabby didn't leave until today. Let me just say I have wonderful parents!!! They cleaned, did laundry, cooked AMAZING food and loved on Emma while I slept. Mom was here to let me cry on her shoulder (several times) and it was so nice having her here. There is just something about your mom... I finally know how she feels about me and my siblings and it is overwhelming! God blessed my life with mom and dad, Charles, Andy, Amy, brother and sister-in-laws, nephews and a niece, and now sweet Emma Grace. What more could a girl ask for. Life as we knew it has changed and I couldn't be happier!

That made me cry! I'm so happy for you guys!! Once you have a baby it is exactly how you said. You love this child more than you know is possible and you have a new found appreciation for your own mother! Love you lots and again I'm so happy for ya'll! Can't wait to see the new threesome! I'm going to try to go up to Denison that same week ya'll are supposed to be there.
