A special day...

This day is very special for us. Alex and I had our very first date, 15 years ago tonight! I have a pretty fantastic husband. He sent me a sweet email this morning, reminding me of the day. How many husbands remember the date of their very first date? Most are good to remember their anniversary! (LOL) I am blessed.

Another reason that today is special...we brought our baby girl home!!

We arrived home around 10:30 this morning. A and I immediately went to bed and stayed there. She wakes up for her feeding every 3 hours...I change her, take her temp, feed her and then she goes back to sleep for another 3 hours. I'm not finding it hard to sleep while she sleeps. This is a new kind of tired for me. A good kind. :) I'm so happy to have her home with us.

Thank you all for your prayers. I'll post more soon, but need to get a little sleep before her next feeding.

Love to all,

An excellent day and a new reason for the day. Congrats on getting to bring her home. I've been praying for you all alot and frequenting your blog like a million times a day to see if things change. Glad she's home. Congrats again. Rest up and sleeping while the baby sleeps is the best advice anyone ever gave me glad you're doing the same. Hugs.
