What We've Been Up To...

Hi friends!  Sorry I've been away so long.  I'm slowly getting used to having a newborn in my home and it has been quite the adjustment.  Matt and I have spent many a sleepless nights reminiscing about the days of it being just the two of us...only to look in our sweet little girl's eyes and realize God's perfect timing.  Plus, she's just so darn cute it's hard not to instantly love every single piece of her.

So in order to stall in writing her birth story, I thought I would give you a few pictures of Natalie.  We've had many visitors over the first two weeks of her life.  Really, yesterday was our first day alone, mother and daughter.  Here is a little taste of what we've been up to.

 


We've done a little bit of sleeping...




Followed by a little bit of awake time...usually spent sucking on her hands.



We've spent some tummy time on the activity mat and our scooting skills are really improving!


We've taught Mama what the "poop face" looks like.



And charmed everyone with her big beautiful eyes.


But mostly, we've been doing this.

So now do you understand why I've been gone?
