First Week at Home

  • Posted June 15, 2012 by Babycarey Viewed 475 times

We've experienced lots of “firsts” during Lila's first week at home.

During Lila's first week at home, we've been very busy and experienced lots of “firsts.” We've practiced opening both of our eyes for short periods of time…

we've stretched our fingers…

We met Franklin, which went very smoothly. It worked out well because Franklin was exhausted from playing at the kennel for 4 days, so both he and Lila took the introduction in stride.

We're still making him keep his distance, but he's very sweet and protective of her, running to her whenever she makes a peep.

We sleep…A LOT.

We take family photos…

We go on rides in the car (this time to our first pediatrician appointment).

Happy girl before the doctor's appointment…

Unhappy afterwards!

We discover our feet…

We play when awake…

We take our first ride in the stroller outdoors!

We walk around the neighborhood…

We give Grandma big hugs…

We chill out while Daddy reads… (I wondered how long it would take before this happened!)

We take our first bath at home…

We sleep more and more…The other major activity we do these days is nurse every couple hours, but no pictures of that online!

Happy family…

Franklin, in recognizing his demotion in family status, has found a new buddy in Grandma and follows her around the house most of the time, when not checking on Lila's cries…

More sleeping…

We meet new friends who come to visit (here with Bridget)! We also have been so blessed by friends who have generously brought us meals and flowers.

and finally, we sleep again.
