I have a whole new respect....

for stay at home moms!
Brenna and I have made it through our first week home alone together, and boy, am I tired! It's been a huge adjustment, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! Brenna is really on no set schedule yet, but we are realizing that it's about time to get that show on the road! For example, yesterday she really didn't sleep much at all during the day, except a few minutes after each nursing session. Today, she's been asleep for 3 hours (including our entire trip to the mall!) in her car seat. We'll get there, though, right? :)
And for more of Brenna's "firsts" from this week:
*She went to church for the first time on Sunday - and slept right through most of it!

*She rode happily in her Moby for the first time - our entire grocery shopping trip on Sunday! :)
*She went shopping with just Mommy for the first time.
*She wore a PREEMIE outfit! Weird!
*She went to Panera Bread for the first time with Sheri, April, and Paige.
*She nursed in the car for the first time - we're such multi-taskers now.
*She got up more than once during the night to feed for the first time last night - BOO!
*She ruined multiple outfits in one day by spitting up.

Brenna weighed in at 8 pounds, 1 ounce on Thursday (3 weeks old) - so we are ALMOST back to birth weight! YAY sweet girl!! :)
We have 9 days until she is one month old - where has the time gone? She's growing tooooo fast!


  1. I can't believe it's been almost a month since she was born!!!! Tell her auntie said to quit growing up so fast!

  2. I feel more busy now as a mom at home than when I was teaching! It's amazing how the days fly by! Keep enjoying it and your sweet girl.
