Week 2 of our new lives
has brought the first of many things!
We are loving finding a routine and getting to know each other better and better.
Everyone told me how bonding nursing is, and is really truly is.
There's something indescribable about it.
It is such a blessing, all of it.
She is too cute!
I hate that her neck isn't straight in this thing but she doesn't seem to mind!
First bath... She wasn't loving it. But as soon as we wrapped her up in her little towel and held her, all was right in her world. (See first picture of post:))



Her first manicure! Too many Moms have told me stories of cutting their baby's fingers while trimming nails, and Ruby has been scratching her little face too much lately. So we file, and it works great! She doesn't seem to mind, either!
Today, PRAISE YOU YAHWEH!!!!, is the first day that I have felt better. I can actually get up and walk around! Some circumstances have prevented me from healing as quickly as I had hopeed, but I purposed to remain high spirited and thankful, and I am now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Hallelujah!!

Look at her!!! She is so precious! I am glad to see you putting your Marcel Royale nail tech skills to use. Did you make sure to soften with the cuticle oil and then massage like we were taught? Haha!

And I like that hooded towel. Tell me, where did it come from?! Such style! :)

Looks like you guys are WONDERFUL PARENTS and doing a great job! Keep up the good work and enjoy every blessed moment of it!

every 3-4 hours. And they are loving her. They are being really, really good. It's like they suddenly went from being the center of our attention and acting like our babies, to acting like dogs and standing back a lot. They are good boys!
