Thanking God for his graciousness... Miss Piper is a champ eater, a pretty good sleeper (well, by newborn-baby standards) and quite the cuddle bug. Maybe it's because we had super low expectations going in, but Having A Newborn Round 2 has been way less of a shock to the system than Round 1 was.
Trying to soak in Piper's little new baby smell, her still-too-small-for-all-her-clothes teeny-ness and the way she still scrunches into a ball at every chance.
Missing Burke (he's been in Lubbock with Jord and her fam this week)... he is having a blast with his cousins and doesn't miss us nearly as much as we miss him!
Laughing at the funny faces of Piper Jane.
Trying, unsuccessfully, to whittle my to-do list. I think I crossed off four items this week (even without Burke around). The first two items on the list were "Rest" (after a serious talking to from my mama) and "Get Piper's days and nights switched back." I definitely accomplished those two and am going to count that as success for the week.
Miss Piper Jane, born at 3:31 am on Sunday. 6 lbs. 14 oz, 19 inches long. We are completely smitten!
ps- Her labor and delivery were so. much. less. traumatic than Burke's! I'll put together a complete rundown sometime soon, but thought y'all should know that their arrival stories are at totally different ends of the spectrum. :)
