Life with a newborn

The first 9 days of Nancy's life have been wonderful. Jared had the entire first week off work, and the boys were with their parents, so Jared and I spent the whole time lounging around, getting to know Nancy, and reveling in the fact that our little daughter is finally out of my belly and in our arms. We are tired, but unbelievably happy. She is already growing, and she keeps getting more and more beautiful everyday.

So far Nancy has been sleeping around 4-6 hours a night, which is an absolute miracle. She is also a great eater. I don't think we could have asked for a more perfect baby. I guess we deserve a perfect baby after almost two years of taming our three wild little boys.

Brendan, Seth, and Jacob came back home over the weekend and it went really well. They are fascinated by Nancy and want to touch and hold her all the time. And of course, it is impossible to get them to pose for a decent picture. Except Brendan, who thinks he's a model.

Our fabulous church came to our rescue this week: a bunch of Restored peeps gave us dinner every night so that we wouldn't have to cook. That was probably the best gift we've received.

Nancy went to church for the first time, in her very own Restored onesie.

Here is proud Grandma Nancy!
