Happy New Year!

Wow, what a crazy couple of weeks this has been! The last time I posted, I was being induced to have our daughter. She was born that afternoon (Dec. 22nd) and she is absolutely perfect! I forgot how much you can instantly love a new little person and how much they change your life. The hospital was more than happy to let us go the next afternoon so we were home in time for dinner on Thursday. She did have her days and nights confused but I think we are mostly getting that straightened out- aside from that things have gone pretty smoothly for all of us. J is adjusting pretty well to being the big brother. He wants to hold her all the time and gives her tons of kisses!

Here are a few pics from the big day...

Me looking not-so-fabulous in my couture gown with my ice chips for breakfast. You can see by the smile that nothing too exciting is happening yet.

Here is all 7lbs 3 oz of Princess B.

Here I am with the princess...still rocking the fabulous hospital couture!

He missed his mama!

Little man meeting his little sis for the first time. He kept saying "she's so cute!" I wonder if he will still feel that way in a couple of years?
And this one...well lets just say that my two BFFs were involved!
Since we brought Princess B home we have celebrated Christmas and New Years. We also had umpteen house guests for their annual visit and my hubby's birthday. It really has been a whirlwind. But tomorrow hubby goes back to work and on Wednesday J goes back to school and it will be just B and me snuggling and getting to know each other better. That is as scary as it is exciting!
