A few minutes to post...
Mr. S is holding Selena, our little Miss S, so I have a few spare moments to post. This won't be long. It is so overwhelming to have this little one entrusted to us. We love her so much. We loved her while she was in the womb, but it has multiplied so much since she was born. We're tired .. ok exhausted, but we wouldn't trade any of this for anything.
Sometimes I just gaze at her little face and I can't believe she is ours. She loves to snuggle with us. She is very good during the day, but in the evening hours she gets grumpy! She is a really good baby for the most part, and lets mommy take a shower and even eat breakfast in the morning.
We talked to her so much in the womb, that she really responds to our voices. In fact, a minute after she was born when they laid her on my chest, I spoke to her and she calmed down right away.
She had her first doctor appointment yesterday, and she has already surpassed her birth weight by 5 ounces!! Whoopee!!
On Sunday she and I were home while Mr. S went to church and I sang hymns to her while we rocked in her glider. She loved it.
Life has changed so drastically in the past week. I'm glad Mr. S and I spent a lot of time together before she was born because it is hard not being able to spend quality time together without really planning it!
Okay, I'd better go. This post lasted much longer then I had anticipated ... excuse the choppy manner in which it is written!!
