The First Two Weeks

We've decided to nickname our little girl Milly...it fits! We are all doting on Milly so much. We just love her to pieces. She is such a sweet, good baby. She is sleeping pretty well for a newborn (and especially one of MY newborns!) She sleeps easily 3-4 hours between feedings at night. I was lucky to get 1-2 hours at this stage with the others. I haven't spent any late nights (early mornings) in tears because she just won't sleep. What a blessing! I don't pretend to think that this will continue because babies change their habits so quickly, but I am just grateful for it at this time!

I've discovered these past two weeks that not only did I gain a new baby, but I lost one in the process:It makes me a little sad, but I guess as a consolation, I gained a BOY! It's funny how the baby grows up the moment you bring a new one home. The kids keep commenting on how BIG James is getting and I tell them that they just think that he's gotten so big because Milly is so small...they don't believe me!

Here are just some pics of our cute little Milly for your enjoyment.
(I just love my babies' heads)

We love having a new baby to adore and are trying to enjoy every moment of our final addition!

She is just so precious! I love her too! James does look so big. I forget how small newborns really are. They just don't stay small long enough!

Matt said that he has been feeling like we are missing someone. I told him bad timing...we don't have any insurance. :) Today we are trying to look optimistically to the future!

How fun to have another little girl in your family! She is so adorable! Wish I was close by to lend a hand with your new adjusting schedule.

She is so beautiful! Glad you are enjoying the newborn stage--it really is crazy how fast it goes, and always makes me a little sad that I am usually so exhausted, I don't enjoy it quite as much as I feel I should have.

Oh, she is lovely! I know what you mean about loosing a baby. Aubrey grew into a little girl when Brian came home. I think they feel bigger too.
