Linking up with the lovely Sami's Shenanigans for a long over due weekend update...
and then some!
I know, I know...it's about time right?!
I'm saying the same thing right about now, but I had no idea how many new and different things I'd be doing with a newborn at home.
And yes, you read that correct, Emily is home with us!!!
On her 40th day in NICU her amazing doctors discharged our little girl,
letting her come home 2 days before Thanksgiving.
Believe me, Laz and I and our family were more than thankful to have our healthy girl with us for the holiday.
And now that she's been home for almost 20 days now, things are somewhat becoming second-nature to us.
We moved in with my parents over Thanksgiving weekend, which was easier than expected,
and has overall been a big help for us new parents.
We also found a larger house for us all to move into next month,
so we'll each have our separate spaces but still be together helping each other out.
I'm still technically on maternity leave, and will continue that until the new year.
Since most of my maternity leave was spent in the hospital, I felt like I needed this extra few weeks for some true bonding time with Emily.
And she really is a crazy little girl, just like we all thought she'd come out like.
She's alert, wiggly, and loves to snuggle.
Everyday she's changing and growing,
one day looking like me and the other looking like Laz.
But she's got these huge blue eyes from someone else...maybe my mom...or the mailman...?
Here are some pictures since she's been home:
|She makes some of the silliest faces I've ever seen.|
|I might like playing dress-up a bit more than she does right now, but that'll change soon I'm sure.|
|The holidays are just so much fun with a baby to share them with. <3|
|She snores. It's adorable.|
|Those eyelashes still amaze me every time I look at her!|
So there's my update...I really do wish I got to this way faster than I did, but I'm so glad y'all decided to stick it out and wait for me to finally make my return to the blog world.
Now, I'm not making any promises that I'll be around as much as I used to be,
I can promise to make a better effort at it.
Especially when I get back to work and have baby-less free time,
just don't tell my boss.
I really did miss you all.
And if you guys really want more of me,
(cause who doesn't?!)
I use Instagram a whole lot these days.
So add me: leeeasha
I'd love to send out some Christmas cards to my bloggy friends,
