Happy 3-Week Birthday, Holly!

I cannot belive that our baby is three weeks old today! The past three weeks have passed in a blur of feedings, diaper changes, and not much sleep. Recovery from childbirth has been tougher than I expected. I actually don't know what I expected, but for some reason I thought it would be a walk in the park! I never anticipated feeling so tired and so...yucky and woozy all at the same time. Now I can fully appreciate what new moms go through after having a baby!
We ended up staying in the hospital an extra day, until Saturday the 6th, because the delivery was a little rough on me. Thank goodness for that, because I could hardly get out of bed the day after Holly was born! Maybe I'm a wimp, but I just felt so awful. It was quite the adjustment to being home and taking care of myself and trying to feel better and taking care of this little one! Luckily I feel like we're getting it now. Andrew has been so good with Holly and is such a lifesaver! It makes me upset when she cries or is fussy, but Andrew stays cool and calm and can handle things much better than I can when she is cranky. He has also been able to get a whole month off of work, which is great! Hopefully by the time he goes back I will feel like I have things pretty much under control.
I hate to talk about how hard parenthood is, but it is such a blessing as well! I never imagined that we could love a little person so much. She is so cute and we enjoy her so much! Holly is a happy baby most of the time, which is great and makes her that much more enjoyable. Here are some pictures that we've taken of her since being home.

Quick note: I uploaded these pictures myself! I know how to do it now! You will be seeing a lot more pictures on our blog since I finally figured it out. Yay!
