I'm glad that newborns sleep so much, allowing me time to still play with Dorothy one-on-one.
We've also had lots of special visitors. My oldest sister, her husband, and kids all came to see us just a few days after we got home from the hospital. We are so grateful for the support from friends and family!
And quite a bit of my days are spent trying to juggle both girls. Yesterday was our first day home alone, and amazingly enough it went smoothly. Oh, how we are blessed with tender mercies.

It feels so good to be home! I couldn't wait to leave the hospital last Saturday. In fact, I would have gone home Friday morning if they let me. This birth was so much easier than Dot's, and my body is thankful for that!
Dorothy loves her baby sister. Whenever I am holding the baby, all she wants to do is come over and kiss her repeatedly. She does get a little upset that I can't hold her as much, but she doesn't take it out on the baby-- another thing I am thankful for.
Little miss Lucy is such a sweet baby. She really only cries when she is hungry. She does spit up a TON, though. We are averaging about 4 outfits a day with this one just to keep her dry and comfortable.
We are just blessed once again to have a healthy, beautiful baby girl! Life as 4 is wonderful!
1. Sleeping in my own bed. 2. All the wonderful people bringing in meals--we love you! 3. An almost solid night of sleep last night.
Little Lucy weighs 7 pounds 8 ounces and is 19 inches long. She was born 5/6/2010 at 10:30am. Mom and Baby are resting but are doing wonderfully. Kim will blog when she gets the chance but for now here is a few photos of Lucy first day:
Contractions started a few hours ago. We're getting the house cleaned, Dorothy down for bed, and then perhaps heading to the hospital! Hopefully we'll have pictures of our beautiful little Lucy to share soon!
