I had a couple pictures edited by my brother and then framed them for Brett's birthday. This is my favorite one and Brett just loved it too, I could tell he was touched and we are so constantly reminded of how blessed we are and how good God has been to us.
I also had this picture framed....
They are going to go in our room and slowly the rest of the house will be covered in Emersyn pictures! She sure is a photogenic baby, if I may say so myself! :) Brett is a great photographer too!
Sunday Brett has the day off which was so nice. My mom left that morning and I knew that it was going to be an emotional day for me so it is a good thing that Brett was off. It has been extrememly hard for me to accept the fact that my parent can't just see my baby whenever they want, but we all trust that God is good and He does everything for a reason. I think I am probably over emotional due to the postpartum hormones and such too.
Yesterday was my first day on my own with Emersyn and let me tell you, I have more appreciation for my mother then I ever thought possible. While she was here she did it all, from cooking, cleaning and taking care of us and the baby. Yesterday the reality of what I have entered into really set it. It wasn't as easy as I thought! :) Emersyn has been a little fussy lately, she can be quite gassy, so I am trying some different remedies. BUT I had all these plans to get stuff done yesterday while she was napping and none of it happened! I was so happy when Brett got home, although at that point she had finally settled down for a good nap and we ate dinner with no interuptions which was nice. After dinner we busted out my breastpump and I pumped for the first time, it was great! Also, Brett got to give Emersyn her first bottle. I am so so happy!! Now I can plan on taking a bottle places if I need to. For example, we are going to a football game at Newberg High on Friday. As tempting as it is to nurse my child amidst some very avid sports fans in the bleachers, I instead can bring a bottle and feed her that way! Hooray!!!
Here is Emmers, eating like a champ!
Tonight Biggest Loser is on! I am so excited, I just love that show!! It is very motivating and both Brett and I enjoy it! Plus, I pumped today while Brett was at work so he gets to give her a bottle tonight, whoo hoo!!
