Day 2...

Yesterday went really over here. I stayed home with the baby while Trav took the kids to church- and I slept! It was wonderful. I just needed a hour or two, and thank you Lord for bring it my way! We just relaxed and fought over the baby for hours. We had dinner come in again from my other visiting teacher (and it was Heaven!) and then G-ma & G-pa came over for a few hours last night. I laid on the couch and talked with Edith while waiting for another dose of Advil to kick in. She held the baby the entire time while the kids kept trying to steal him away from her. After they left, Andrea & Lisa stopped by to bring flowers and brownies. We visited for a little bit and then it was time to get the kids ready for bed. After they were down, we gave Roman his first mini bath and he was not a happy camper. He ate really well, we watched part of a movie and then Trav took him for awhile so I could sleep. He slept great last night and I feel a little better getting a few hours! Roman is doing great, he's pooping, eating and sleeping- so he's right on track! I take him in today or tomorrow for his 1st appointment so hopefully things look good from the Dr's end. The kids are still fighing over him, Trav has been an amazing help and I'm feeling a little better. Everything is still sore and aching, but Advil helps alot. My milk is definatly here which is nice and we have setttled right into life. As much as I would love to stay in bed and rest for days- that's just not how the story goes... any Mom knows there is little rest, but that's ok. I'm used to little sleep and messes that never end- so it's not that bad! We are doing well and so glad that Roman is finally here. I love to just snuggle him. I love being a Mom. I saw a quote that said: The best job is the hardest job- how fitting for us Mama's. More pictures to come...
