Yesterday was a tough day. Addie hasn't been feeling the greatest. Lots of screaming and lots of really messy diapers. I took her in and they suggested I cut milk out of my diet. It seems to be not settling well with her. Although I LOVE milk, I'd give up just about anything to not have what we had yesterday :) She was awake most of the day, crying and screaming, so I figured she'd sleep really well last night... WRONG! She was awake until 3 AM, when Dad finally took her and got her to sleep until 5. She just doesn't like to be laying alone in her cradle. She will be fine the minute someone picks her up and holds her, but that doesn't help us get any sleep. She would eat, burp, fall asleep, and then the minute I lay her down, she'd cry, scream, and become wide awake again. AAHHH!!! Needless to say, Brandt and I got very little sleep as well. Hopefully I can keep her awake a bit today, so maybe she'll sleep tonight. I would appreciate prayers today :)
On a side note... she weighs 9 pounds, 2 ounces as of yesterday!

It was a fun weekend for Addie. On Friday, she got to hang out with her friend Nora. They were like two little peas in a pod. Then on Saturday it was Addie's first trip to the beach. She didn't go on the boat, but she loved being outside in the arms of family. Her hat may be a little large yet...

We survived our first week together, with Brandt being back at work. We had a lot of fun! Let's see... we slept in, took walks, watched tv, took naps... I think that's about it :-) Yesterday we actually ventured out of the house and went with a friend to the outlet mall. It was nice to get out of the house and see that there's life outside our little world at home. We had a great time. Well, Addie slept the whole time, but I had fun! Tomorrow morning Daddy's going to let me sleep in and he and Addie are going to enjoy some Sat. morning cartoons together. Yeah!

My Addison is 2 weeks old today. We had a doctor's appointment today. It went very well. She weighs 8 pounds 2 1/2 ounces... more than her birth weight, which is good. She measured 20 3/4 inches in length. I have two more days with Brandt at home. He goes back to work Monday. Pray for me next week :-)

Addie had her first bath and first walk today! It was a very exciting day :) I think she is going to be Daddy's little girl.

Well... we are finally home! It was one too many days in the hospital, but they let us go today. Thank you everyone for your thoughts, prayers, gifts, visits, and comments on the blog! We'll continue to keep you updated with pictures and thoughts as the days go on. Here's a little something from me...
...I could love someone I just met so much
...I would just want to sit and stare at her for hours and hours
...I could love the way she smells so much :)
...that 2 hours of sleep could feel like 12! fall in love with Brandt even more as we became parents
...this journey to be such a rollercoaster of emotions - lots of ups and downs
...feeding to be so tough (but we're getting the hang of it) say I'd be willing to do another c-section any day!
...being a mom could feel so fabulous

That's about it! Enjoy those pics :-)

SHE'S HERE!!! Addison Noelle was born on Friday, June 1 at 8:39 am. She was 8 lbs 1 oz (not bad for 2 weeks early!), 20 inches long, and she had a head circumference of 14 3/4 inches. She's is the most beautiful thing you will ever see. Mom is doing great, Addie is doing great, and Dad is loving every moment of it. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!!! Enjoy some of these pics!
