It was so much fun and I posted our sneak peek above! They are amazing and we could not be happier - cannot wait to see the rest and get to printing!
Things have been good over here, we have had a few hiccups like Claire having a cold, me having a stomach flu and the both of us having thrush :( today we are off to the doctors to get the thrush looked at and treated I will post more about that next time, I had read about thrush but am learning so much more about it now that we are both dealing with it.
We had a pretty busy weekend, the Dunning wedding was a blast, such a beautiful event and it was also a lot of firsts for Claire! Her first wedding, her first breast milk bottle, her first dance with mommy and daddy AND her first time taking pictures in a photo booth :) it was a really nice evening and we both ended up being pretty pooped so it was really nice that I had an extra bottle already pumped and ready for her so Ryan took a feeding that evening and I was able to catch a few more zzz's
Lindsey is in town! She is here for a week so Claire still has a few more days with her auntie Li. Lindsey made her the cutest little baby shoes AND she re did her baby blanket so that Claire could now have it! It is so thoughtful and cute, I remember my baby blanket and I hope Claire wants to carry hers around with her all of the time.
My moods are still pretty up and down but I am feeling so much better than before, sometimes I just do not feel like myself and I am trying to not be hard on myself and my body, we have been living on the couch with snuggles and reality tv. I need to enjoy the time off more but my insane need to be go go go has occasionally blocked it, but I am enjoying all the time with my little nugget. She is filling out so fast and changing every second. She amazes me all the time AND WHAT IS THIS BABY SMELL its intoxicating, I just smell her all the time haha.
I still am going back and forth on how I plan on continuing this but for now I am liking lists, they are quick and easy :)
*the hourly feedings from 4am to 7am
*looking and feeling exhausted
*the time after she is done nursing and just stares at me like she has never been happier and then starts to fall asleep
*Ryan is amazing, every day he does so much for us I am so glad I am doing this with him
*watching her little belly chub out
*watching her back muscles get all big when she is working so hard at tummy time
*thankful for so much time off work to bond with my baby lady
*thankful for our family and friends for support
