Believe it or not, it has already been a week since I met my sweet little Brygit. It feels like just yesterday but I also have a hard time remembering life without her. Here are my favorite parts of these incredible 7 days.
On the evening after she was born, family came to meet her. Here she is with her Aunt Nathania and cousin Dennis who was a little shy around her.
Grandma and Grandpa with her sweet brother, Liam.
And Uncle Ian. My brother was also there, my sister, cousin Aaron and my mom who had been there through the entire day but somehow evaded pictures.
We were released from the hospital the next day and came home to start our life with our new addition to the family. I thought that Liam would have a hard time adjusting but he has been a champ. He has been very patient with us and very loving and protective toward her. He is adjusting very well and I am so proud of him.
It was Valentine's Day and we celebrated by resting, eating chocolate and dressing Brygit up in heart patterned PJs that we were lucky to have since she wasn't expected to be here before Valentine's Day.
It snowed this day so we built a fire and stayed indoors.
Except for the boys who wanted to run around in the snow.
Liam worked on his photo faces since the camera seems to always be out these days.
Liam went with his grandparents to Calico Ghost Town while Paul stayed in bed with a horrible flu and Brygit and I tried to stay as far away as possible. When Liam returned he was sick as well and I started to panic a little.
Everyone woke up feeling much better and now my little girl is officially one week old!
Things have been going pretty smoothly so far. Brygit is pretty easy going and sleeps a lot. She was 8 lbs and 7 oz at her well baby appointment which means she is getting plenty of milk and eating well. I am recovering from childbirth much quicker this time around (thanks to a great doctor who knew what she was doing). Paul is off work and enjoying being home with his family. And my MOMS Club has been bringing us dinner every night since we have been home which has been such a tremendous help. I am now starting to feel a little stir crazy but also very hesitant to take Brygit out after our encounter with the flu virus. I'm definitely looking forward to the next few weeks as we adjust and as Brygit spends more and more time awake.
