One Week Old.

And on the seventh day, I took a shower.

Just kidding, today wasn't the first time I took a shower. But getting to the shower has been a little tougher.

Sunday morning, J took the bigs (T & M) to church and I stayed home with the littles (H & E) and I thought I'd have a really productive morning.

When they returned at 11:30, I was still in my pajamas and the breakfast dishes were still on the table. But hey, both H and E were fed, dressed and happy. That counts for something, doesn't it?

I have decided that right now isn't the time to be productive. I'd much rather be able to enjoy Evelyn's first days of life than rush around doing this or that. This crazy, busy time is just temporary.

So if I owe you a phone call, an email or posting here seems to be lagging behind, you know why. And someday I'll be all caught up. When there's a time for that. But right now I'm enjoying our newest chapter in life.

M and H playing in the snow on the deck.

H has been driving us crazy to get outside and it finally dawned on me that he could play on the deck and I could watch from inside. He loves it.

T, M and H have all done a great job adjusting to their new sister.

And just like I suspected, H instantly grew before my eyes when we brought his baby sister home. Never before has he looked so big, so old, so tough. It is indeed a bittersweet thing.
And as for Evelyn....
... she's doing great. We had our first outing Monday to the doctor. (and Target, of course.) She weighed in at 8 lbs even. She had been down to 7 lbs 2 oz when we left the hospital so we were very happy with her increased weight.

She's eating great.

Sleeping great. And though I hesitate to say this because I might be jinxing myself, but Sunday and Monday nights she only got up twice and last night, she only got up ONCE!

Seriously. I couldn't really ask for anything better than that.

We are so, so happy.

So, so blessed.

Congrats!! She's beautiful and it will be quite an adventure.

Wow, my daughter didn't sleep through the night until 7 months (and she was getting up several times)! You're lucky.
