First Days

Today was my first day on my own with both boys. Well, to be completely honest, today was my first 3 1/2 hours with both boys. :) My parents went home yesterday, and then Ed went to work today. He goes in at 3pm and Samuel goes to bed at 6:30pm, so I just had those 3 1/2 hours to keep both boys. It was actually really easy - Joel ate at 3:30 and then slept the rest of the time! And someone from our church family brought dinner over, so I didn't have to cook. I guess I am more easing my way into reality - but today was reassuring.

Here are a few random pics from the past few days. We are really enjoying Joel - he is a total sweetheart.


Hollie said... precious! I love how optimistic you are Leah. When I was in your shoes when I had Laney, I was an emotional basketcase, esp when my parents left and Hugh went back to work all in the same day. Granted, I did have a c-section, was on drugs and was still moving slowly and in a great deal of pain and was having the worst nursing problems EVER....AND she was my first so I didn't have much confidence at that point. So, would you say that having the first is harder than having the second, focusing on the emotional aspect of it all. I hope and pray that whenever we get pregnant again that I could try for a VBAC. I don't want another c-section again!

So, I think Joel looks more like Ed.

btw, your mom was showing off adorable pictures today at church.

take care,

We got that exact same flower arrangement from the folks at work when David was born. Ana still plays with the wagon even though there's a sticker on it that says it should not be given to children as a toy. Probably because of the lead paint.
