Here is another picture of my sweet little Lily's feet with my wedding ring. I stole the idea from my friend, Christina, who is an amazing photographer. Becky came by the hospital and took the sweetest pictures of Lily. I can't wait to scrapbook these!
We had a nice day. I went with Steve to give the 4 older kids to Mom. She gave me a really cool lawn chair for my birthday. I had asked Steve for one. They are really comfortable. I want to be able read a book outside in the summer.
Steve and I went to Bingen, Washington to an Italian place to eat since we had only two kids. It was so easy!
I nursed her when we got home and asked if I could go to the library and the store. I was able to get away for an hour. I went to the store and bought the fixin's for root beer floats, Starburst candies (I can't do chocolate while I'm nursing), and some Wheat Thins. I was so hungry! I was actually embarrassed at the check stand. I looked like a pig!
I am feeling better. My hormones are starting to get a little less intense and some of my painful issues are subsiding. I'm so glad. I can't wait to be the mommy that I've been wanting to be. I can't wait to take a hike with my kids in the spring air.
One more thing, I am so amazed at how soft my baby's skin is. It is truly addictive. I want to touch her constantly, kiss her baby soft hair and ears, smooch her sweet cheeks and tiny mouth. I'm addicted to my little Lily and it has only been 6 days. I can't tell you how much I love this sweet little thing.
I had the best night's sleep last night. Lily woke up only twice! I slept and slept, it was so refreshing. I just woke up praising God. Life always looks a little better when you have had sleep!
