Meet Everly Jane! She was born January 14 at 6:36pm and my husband and I could not be happier! (Ok, a little more sleep would definitely make us happier, but we know someday we'll sleep again!) The past few weeks have been amazing ... and exhausting! Our hearts exploded when we held her for the first time and every moment since has been spent holding her, staring at her, kissing her, loving on her, and doing everything in our power to keep her happy and healthy... and of course changing endless explosive diapers and feedings around the clock! I'm holding her as I type this and she stares up at me because I'm way too aware that she will only be this small right now. So I'm going to hold this baby every second I can!I have a whole new respect for parents! All I want to do is make her happy and make whatever is making her sad go away. Ahhh ... this is just the beginning. Her problems now are just gas and hunger ... I hope my heart can handle her real problems down the road.
Being a first time mom, there's a lot of trial and error. Being a first time mom planning to nurse takes it to a whole new level. Whoever said there's no use in crying over spilled milk CLEARLY never spilled breast milk. That was this morning's happenings. I think I need to start a t-shirt line with sayings like that. #MomProbs
What has really blown my mind is how fast Everly is changing. Every parent will tell you it flies by and to cherish every moment ... but I didn't realize just HOW fast she would change and grow. Even just by looking at the pictures below, her face has changed so much already. She loves to be sung to (I make up songs daily!), her neck is getting so strong, and she loves tummy time! Oh yeah, shes also finding her voice!
Thank you so much for all of your love and support throughout my pregnancy and in welcoming Baby Ev! I've been posting pictures on the KRZ Facebook, but here are a few more! I'll continue to check in with Jeff on air every week while I'm home with my little love.While I'm loving every second with my mini-me, I miss all of you and love chatting with you and keeping in touch on FB and Twiiter!
