Peyton is awesome with her. We could tell for the first few days home she was a little out of sorts, but that could be from being spoiled by grandparents. Now she is fine again. She loves "little sister" (as she calls her) and always wants to check on her. She talks to her, and tries to comfort her often if she makes any little noise. She is excited to see her in the mornings, has to give her kisses before bed at least twice, and is overall really kind and gentle (though not overly aware of her at all times, which can be a problem). She is also a really good helper to me.
We came home from the hospital on Tuesday night and had to go to the pediatrician on Wed morning. In the 2 days following her birth she lost 9 ounces... she seriously can't stay awake long enough to eat and was not feeling well in the hospital because she swallowed gunk inside me. She also had a hard time latching, so in the beginning nursing was a challenge. She also had a little jaundice. So, we had to make yet another apt for Friday. Luckily she gained back 4 ounces in those 2 days (milk came in and she finally got eating down, though she still has a hard time staying awake) and her jaundice was not an issue. Besides that we've only gone out of the house a couple of times, and she loves the car seat and driving.
We've had lots of visitors here and as I said before our ward has taken such good care of us this last week. We've not been living real life it seems. We are tired, Christmas decorations are still up, we've let Peyton watch way too much TV, and each day seems like a blur where I wonder what on Earth we've done. Luckily, I feel great, and feel like things are starting to feel a little more normal and with Wes being home with me this transition seems so easy... luckily.
Not in order.... but......
Wes and Jovie. She looks like a cute little ball on his chest.
She was 3 days old here.
To say Ella is a little obsessed is an understatement. It's really sweet.
Cute little smile and notice that dimple. Funny place but it is so darling.
