Life with a new baby

I can’t believe how fast the first two weeks home with Liana have flown by!  We came home from the hospital on May 12th and I was Blessed to have my best friend from HS, Rhonda, here visiting from Charlotte, NC.  It was so wonderful to be able to spend time with her and she was such an immense help around the house and helping me care with a toddler and a new baby.  Thank you so much, Rhonda!!

Liana is doing wonderful.  She is an excellent baby.  Very mellow, easy going and an excellent eater.  Nursing was difficult for the first week because I was a bit sore, but we have passed the first hurdles and settled into a solid routine.  She’s starting to sleep longer periods at night so I’m finally getting some rest.

Evan is enjoying being a Big Brother.  He loves his little sister and will show her off to anyone who comes over to visit.  lol  Every morning when he gets up, he looks for his sister and wants to give her a kiss.  He’s so very gentle with her.  So far he hasn’t shown much jealousy, although he has asked me a few times if she’s going back in my tummy…lol

I’m finally feeling much better from the c-section and am getting around again, even driving.  I may even start sleeping upstairs again this week!  This is the last week that Paul will be home on paternity leave, so I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible.  Next week will be quite the new challenge for me as a mom to balance 2 kids at night by myself.  I’m sure I’ll do well, but it will be an adjustment.

Here are some pictures from the 1st two weeks at home.  I am so in love with my baby girl and my whole family.  🙂

  1. Awww Jenna she is such a cutie! Glad to hear that things are going well at home. Your pictures are adorable. 🙂

    My nephew Benjamin (the 5yr old) is so fascinated by your whole story. He saw the clothes I bought for Liana and wanted to know all about you- so I showed him some of your pics and he loves the ones of you and Evan. I showed him Liana last week and he thinks she’s cute. He’s at that age where babies are just fascinating. (and we don’t have any of our own here, but some local friends recently had babies too) He keeps asking me when we’re going to visit you. I said maybe in the fall, so we can go to a hockey game!
