I am so blessed. I am giving myself permission and time to rest and recover with this baby. Ralph and my MIL, Connie, are fully supporting me/making it possible. I am getting tons of snuggle time with this doll baby:
Also, with my big girls as well.
I really think it is helping. I am feeling more "normal" than I ever did with the other 2. Of course, with Arwen it was Christmas time and I "couldn't" slow down. With Greer, we were moving. There truly was no time to rest. Part of me feels I am resting for all 3 deliveries now. While this was the most exciting of the 3 deliveries, it was by far the easiest.
I am loving our giant snugglefests in bed. Both older girls come running in and join Ralph, Baby and me first thing. The girls are loving the extra screen time we are allowing to help through this first week's transition. They join me in bed-one on the iPad, the other on my iPhone and alternate between games and videos and "carrying" (aka holding) Baby Sister. It's super cute.
Alright, I'm off to nap some. More pictures to come soon!
