Little Ellerie is 1 month old today! This isn't the best picture, but it will have to do for now. I can't believe that 1 month has passed already. She is such a sweet baby. She slept alot this first month, which most of my babies do because they are born a bit early. We actually had to wake her up for feedings since she's so little (but the hardest part was keeping Mommy awake for the feedings)! You know how it is ladies, right? You get up to feed and fall asleep. Then you wake up and wonder if she ate from both sides yet? It's been those kind of nights!
The adjustment for the older children seems to be going as well as expected! Coleman and Emmie love to shower her with kisses and sit beside me while I feed her. Calvin has been loving and gentle with her as well, giving her plenty more kisses. I know we are so blessed but I was quickly reminded of how hard these first few weeks are because of lack of sleep and the many needs of a newborn (as well as the needs of a 2-year old, 4-year old and 6-year old). I don't always handle life so well on so little sleep so I am trying to sleep when I can and not worry so much about the house. Just make sure to call before you come by so I can throw everything into a hiding place!
But I have been able to get a bath each day! That in itself is a reason to sing some praise!!
