1st Week by myself

Well...I've made it through one week by myself! And boy...it really wasn't easy!! I loved having my mom here, and was so sad to see her go...but I really didn't expect last week to be as hard as it was. It's a hard job having a new born...just adjusting to having to care for someone else beside myself for 24 hours a day is a lot. Trying to get her into a semblance of a routine while having totally disrupted my own has really been a shock to my system. She's a good baby too...I'm super blessed to have such a happy, healthy baby. She does have her fussy moments like every other child but overall, she's a really good kid. I've been struggling a little in general....man those hormonal changes after pregnancy are really a doozy! I miss my husband like crazy when he is gone, which I think is the hardest part, but I'm working through it. I know that if I can keep relying on my Heavenly Father, and give myself time to adjust, everything will fall into place.

Anywhoodle...I have a few pictures. The ones of Lorelai in her crib are on her 3 week birthday. And the there are a few of Erick and her from this weekend.

Love you all! Until later!

Oh my goodness Jen, she has grown since I saw her last.... she has really gotten long. What a doll she looks like one too in her crib just like the ones you use to play with. Hang in there, your doing great and before you know it , it will be second nature and you won't remember any thing different. You make a great mom and I am so proud of you.
Love,
Mom
