First Week

Hard to believe a week has gone by already. To think originally we weren't going to meet her until tomorrow. :) Thanks to everyone for the cards, calls and well wishes.

We are all adjusting well. So far Bennet really likes her sister. Whenever she wakes up from a nap the first thing she does is goes to look for 'Cout'. I am trying to take it easy and rest when I can. I'm enjoying my 2 hour spurts of sleep.

Scout is definitely her own gal. We see similarities between her and Bennet, but she really has her own spirit. She's a wiggle monster that's for sure. And we think her eyes will end up green or brown- they're really dark.
Getting ready to leave the hospital. Thanks to Mark, Sara, Mallory and Meghan for the cute outfit. Mallory- you picked a winner! Bennet fell in love with her cousin's Cozy Coupe so we got one for her. She LOVES it! (Pardon our 'well lived in' basement. Side note- I've had those darn 'Elephant Pants' since college. Some comfy clothes you just can't retire)


B saw me turn on the camera and posed for this photo.

Typical scene at our house right now. Mouth open and everything. Classic.


I know it's just gas- but she smiles alot. I think she has a little dimple on her right cheek too.

And now for my new all-time favorite photos. Of course I'm still hormonal- but I choke up when I see them. I am truly blessed to have a healthy, happy family.

That last photo is so amazingly perfect, I think I would be choked up even if I weren't a hormonal mess myself! Precious.
