New life



Ok, so I had already expected that there would be a lot of changes when a new member came into the family, but I had forgotten all that a baby brings. Our little girl Nia arrived on July 14th and weighed 7 lbs 4 onz. and 18'' long. The best thing about her joining our family so far is how perfectly she fits in. It's like she was always meant to be here! She just clicks very well here and I'm glad she has joined us. Now, that that has been said, I can assure you it has not been easy! Having a newborn may come splendidly nice to some people, but not to me! Breastfeeding has been a spiraling journey (that I am still on), and lack of sleep has my eyes crossing for most of the day. Truthfully, I consider her to be a great baby, seeing as she only seems to cry for valid reasons, but still she is a baby that cries a lot! She also makes weird noises all the time (have considered giving her the nickname R2D2). So, here is my update. I have a new baby. I love her. I can't wait for her to be older! Keep me in your prayers! Will write again as soon as my brain has more sleep time!
