I can't believe that it's been a whole week already since Sophia was born! It seemed as though the weeks before her birth went so slow and now life is rushing along. My dh has been off all this week and it's been really nice having the extra help and him to have some time to get to know our new baby. Monday starts my new life with 5 kids. I'm guessing that it's going to be tough to juggle everyone at first. I'm hoping that the little ones will give me a little grace as I figure out how to meet everyone's needs. Sophia is a wonderful little girl! She's a good eater and a great sleeper. I'm getting more rest now then I was before she was born. Isaac was upset at me when we first all got home. It has taken all week for him to forgive me for leaving like that.lol Just last night was the first time that he would let me love on him. I'm thankful that he's o.k. now. He really doesn't think too much about Sophia, I think he's just young and as long as she's not taking his toys, he's fine with her.lol Evie loves HER new baby, as she calls her.lol She's wonderfully gentle and just loves to hold her. She loves to tell visitors not to touch Sophia's head, as "it's still squishy."LOL Isaac loves to rub his nose on her head. He says her head tickles him.lol Allison loves to hold the baby and is a wonderful help. Eric was not feeling well for a few days and Allison just took right over. Poor Jon has been sick since I was in the hospital and is staying with my parents. We're hoping he'll feel well enough to come home today. I'm sure he's dying to spend some time with the new baby.
I've been feeling great! It's really hard to take it easy when I feel good.lol I did over do it once and realized that even though I feel good, it doesn't mean that I'm all healed up. I've been taking it easy ever since, even though the house is a mess and I really want to clean it.lol
We finally decided on a washing machine.lol I hate buying appliances. It seems like a process more geared toward my dh's disposition. He loves to research and hunt out the best machine whereas I just want one that works. I really didn't want a front loader because they take forever and I have so much to wash that I was looking for capacity and speed but Eric found that the newest front washers can fit twice as much in them as my old washer and the one we bought has the lowest wash time for front loaders. We ended up with the high priced LG model. It is supposed to save us a lot of money in water and electricity. We'll see. My biggest issue is; will it make my life easier? If so, then it's worth it.lol We get it on Tuesday, so I'll let you all know how I like it.
Well, I'll post our menu later today once Allison has had a chance to make it. I need to help get everything ready for church now. I wish I was going but I've committed to staying home until next weekend. I think it's best anyway since it's cold today and I don't want the baby out in it. I'm really trying not to overdo it.lolol I've never felt this good after having a baby and it sure is hard to sit around.lol
