One Week Old

We have been home 3 days and so far things have gone pretty smoothly. We took Emma to her first checkup this morning and thankfully he said everything looked great! She has gained an oz a day since we left the hospital and he said she is doing "fantastically". Other than a few frustrating nursing moments, she has been a very easy baby and even sleeps really well at night.

Macy and Charlie are adjusting to having a new sibling. They both love to hold her and have done pretty well to the changes (except for a few random meltdowns).

Special thanks to Seth's mom who came and took care of the kids and house while I was in the hospital. The kids had a good time and I knew they were in good hands. My mom is coming tomorrow to stay for a few days and we are very much looking forward to having her here and help out!

Finally, here are a few pictures from the last few days. Here she is coming home from the hospital. A women at Seth's parents church made this bonnet for her. It is to be worn coming home from the hospital and then saved until her wedding day as hanky for her something old. Seth and I thought she kind of looked like a pilgrim:Taking a snooze:Macy was reading to Emma (she was buried somewhere under those blankets):And a few I just took:
