More Pictures of our Daughter!

Well, it's been too many days without an update! I have been sooooo unbelievable happy as a momma! These have been the very happiest day of Jonathan and my life together, because it's taking the joy of us together and adding something to it! Having a daughter is so amazing. I never ever get tired of just staring at her face. I can't believe she's ours! The days go so blissfully and happily with her. She is such a good baby, she has been perfect at sleeping and has been a champ at breastfeeding too. She has some wakeful nights, but I can't believe I've been honored to get the priviledge of providing for her every need right now. This time is so, so precious.

We went in for the 3 day pediatrician visit and everything was great with Elyana. The pedi asked how it was being a mom and I replied, "The best thing in the world." To which she said, "Oh good, you must not be exhausted." I didn't even think of that! I have been blessed with lots of energy. I was tired and took a nap the first two days, especially when she got up a lot one night. But other than that, I've been feeling great. The recovery is painful (very, at times) and uncomfortable, but that's understandable. I've been trying to type up the long version of her birth story! I find myself distracted with just being with her and holding her. I'll hold her for hours at a time, just so I can look at her and marvel over every perfect part!!!

So, Jonathan and I are doing amazingly. My mom is here now, making great meals and taking over over necessities for me so I can just enjoy the baby. Jonathan gets 10 days of paternity leave, as a new thing the Air Force has passed. It's so wonderful!

So let me close with some pictures of our princess, and some videos. Isn't she a doll?????

She's sooo beautiful... Enjoy every minute of those hours of staring into her eyes. It goes by so fast. Even when you're exhausted and weepy from hormones, try to remember just how lightening-fast it goes by and savor every moment.

How unspeakably precious, Denise! There's something more infinite about seeing YOU with YOUR DAUGHTER.....than other mothers with theirs. When something so long and dearly desired actually comes to pass by prayers, one just has to gaze at it in worship! Praise be to God for His answered prayers!
