Josiah - one week old

Swaddled in his swing

Check out my red hair!
Our pediatrician said in dealing with a newborn: "Life is filled with short days and long nights." Boy have I found that statement to be true this past week. Getting up at night is hard to get used to again. Josiah's feedings take a lot of time, so it's not like getting up to check on Eden then going right back to sleep. I guess that's why God has women go to the bathroom so much at the end of their pregnancy. It get us used to not sleeping at long stretches.
We have a rough schedule down with Josiah. He likes to eat every 3-4 hours. We hope to be able to get his schedule together with Eden's so that I can have them napping at the same time each afternoon. How awesome would that be for Mommy!
We are just overly blessed! Josiah is a great baby! Eden is doing well with the transition and our family and church family has been so good to us during this transition. Larry and I are in awe of how good things have gone over the past week.
