New Mommy Chronicles

Yesterday, Annabeth turned exactly one week old! I can't believe how fast time flies. I don't want for her to get any bigger because she is just so darn cute. This week, I was lucky enough to have mom stay with me for three days. Then Shelley and Erin came to visit. It was so nice to have the extra help, and I have to say that I am really missing it now. As a new mom, I am discovering things that no one told me while I was pregnant. Like the new and exciting world of hemmorhoids, the joys of leaking milk at all hours of the day, and the frequent fits of crying for absolutely no reason at all (not the baby, but me). I guess if people had told me all those things, I may not have gone through with it. But looking into the eyes of our sweet little baby girl makes it all worth it (I can't believe I'm crying again!) Thanks to everyone for all your help, love and support. We appreciate all you are doing for our new little family.
