First Weekend at Grandpa and Grandma's

We had our first big weekend at my parents last weekend and it went well! We attended a concert in Holland on Saturday night where Adelle and I had our first public breastfeeding experience. I was very nervous but it we did it without a hitch and I did not flash anyone! Sunday was a big day at church. She did great in the morning and was a little fussy in the evening. She was the highlight of the day at church every one wanted to see her and a few people held her. When we walked in as flock of girls between the ages of 6-10 surrounded her and people kept asking me where Adelle was b/c they could see I was no longer pregnant but they could not see a baby.
It was great to visit with family and successfully accomplish last weekend! Now we are ready for bigger outings and events!

Grandpa with his girls!  He loves it!
My Parents picked up this outfit for Adelle. Pink dress, pink head band, pink tights and pink booties!  The girls matched well and looked so cute!  Emory is cutting teeth so she was not feeling very good.  Poor girl!

Being a Mommy

Well after a little more than two weeks of being Mommy I LOVE IT! No matter how many late nights and poopy exploding diapers I change there is no better job in the world!! Adelle and I are still adjusting to breastfeeding but we are slowly getting the hang of it. She has slept well the last two nights, only getting up twice during the night to eat. She is so very precious and I am still amazed that she fit inside of me!!

We went to the Dr. on Wednesday and she weighed 10lbs. 3oz. she eats very well!

Yesterday she had newborn pictures taken and I cannot wait to see the results! My pastor's wife and her photography partner came to our house for the photo shoot. They were very creative and Adelle was of course just beautiful! She was awake and happy for almost the entire shoot. She just laid on the blanket and cooed at the camera. I will post a few pictures when we get them.
