Morning Sunshine!

Judd and I have decided, she must be her father's child because she's happiest when she first wakes up in the morning! That is certainly not something she got from me! Of course, the two best smiles were out of focus. I wasn't ready for them but they were so big I couldn't help but start snapping! The only way to get her to smile like this is to kiss her and say "Good Morning Baby!" and she smiles so big. I love it.

Ah, I'm so mad it wasn't focused yet!

Carseat Bliss!

My grouchy little girl went for a ride and finally fell asleep! I figured when I brought her in the house she'd wake right back up...but surprise! She stayed asleep!

So - I got the FLU!

Yeah, this hasn't been my best week ever. By any means. Wednesday morning I woke up with an awful headache. I attributed it to the fact that I hadn't gotten much sleep the night before. I took two Tylenol and went on with the day. As the day went on, the headache got worse instead of better...and I was suddenly freezing cold! I decided to take my temperature (this was about 3 hrs after taking the Tylenol) and it was 100.4. Ugh. I was getting sick. I took Caroline's temperature and it was normal - THANK GOODNESS! By the end of the day, I was absolutely miserable and could barely function to take care of Caroline and myself so I had to call Judd. He came home from work about 45min early and took Caroline and forced me to go to bed.

Before it was all over with, my fever had gotten up to 102.7!! Misery barely describes it! I'm doing much better and Caroline still seems to be sickness-free. This makes me so glad that I decided to stick with breastfeeding. In the beginning, I wanted to quit because I was in so much pain...but I'm so glad I stuck it out. I have no doubt that she would be sick had I not continued. I wouldn't wish this on ANYONE..and certainly not a newborn!
Anyway, we're all feeling better and trying to Lysol the entire house to keep it from spreading any further! I'll leave you with a picture of my sweet, milk-mouth, wide-eyed little girl. :)

Newborn Photo Preview!!!

Y'all - I am IN LOVE with these pictures, and I'm not sure I can wait 2 weeks for the rest! I'm SO pumped. I nearly screamed when I saw them tagged on my facebook! This is a sneak peek of the pictures! :) Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

I don't have a lot to update on, but I know I haven't said much in a while. What can I say...we've been busy! Busy sleeping, eating, changing diapers, and holding our sweet girl. :)
She's a pretty good sleeper - but the nighttime feedings are getting tiring, for sure! For example, last night we got into the bed at 12am. She then woke up at 1am, 2am, 3am, and 4am. Talk about exhausted! She started sleeping for 2 hour stretches after 4am which I was thankful for! Life has definitely changed and there's truly no way to prepare for how big of a change it is. It's a welcomed change, though. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Caroline's newborn pictures were taken today by Brandy Jaggers Photography and I'm SO excited. Caroline looked quite adorable in her birthday suit, if I may say so myself. We had her in baskets and pretty backdrops and even some special pictures for family. I can't to get them. I'm so glad that we decided to have them taken. She'll never be this little again and I want to remember that!
I hope you all have a wonderful start to this week! I'll do my best to update again soon! I'll leave you with a picture from Friday. This is Mommy and her little girl!

Being a mom is so amazing. Even though I'm exhausted, I can't wait to see her in the mornings. We get up every 1 1/2-2hrs in the middle of the night. That gets tiring, but she sleeps a lot during the day. She's the light of my life. I wouldn't go back to life without her for anything. AND - get this! - I'd rather have her OUTSIDE my belly than INSIDE...even in my exhaustion. Well, it's time to take her to bed and begin another long night! Judd and I are SO in love with her.

More pictures of my sweet baby girl!

Sleepin' like a baby!

First smiles!!!

Look how tiny she is!

Judd calls this the "Lion King" picture. :)

I don't have much time because I've got to go feed my sweet little girl, but I had to let the blogging world know that our sweet little girl is finally here. We're all doing great and are now at home! FINALLY! It feels SO great to be back at home.
