Harper is three weeks old today.
Scott's mom had this cute wreath made for us to hang when we brought Harper home (before she knew we would be going to the NICU) - so we hung it out today.
It's been a busy day - that sweet, happy baby who never cried, slept all the time, and didn't eat much? I'm not sure where she went. We woke up today (actually all of last night) with a baby who can't get enough food and screams bloody murder until she gets it. I feel like I've pretty much fed her non-stop all day. But when I get tired - I try to remember how thankful I am that she can scream and how thankful I am to be feeding her. It was only a few days ago when she had to fed through tubes and was not able to cry. Thank you God for a baby who just wants to eat!
We have been trying out all the baby stuff today - the swing, the bouncy seat, the pack and play. This was the only few minutes today that she slept.
I am so thankful that my mom is staying a few days with us to get us settled. She has been SOOOOOOOOO helpful. She went to wal-mart for us, cooked us this wonderful dinner, has helped me with Harper............we are so lucky to have her. Especially since she has been able to stay through all of this with Harper. We are lucky to have the support of all of our parents - we are thankful for them. And we know Harper loves them very much.
Harper and Dawson have not met yet. My dad is keeping him another week or so until we get settled in and then we'll bring him home. I'm glad - I need to get situated before I let the two of them meet. Besides, Dawson is loving the country life with his grandpa - we think he won't want to come home.
I better run check on baby............................................have a great weekend - love you all!
