Baby Update :)

Hi everyone, I'm sorry it has taken me so long to update. It has been one challenging period. Caring for a newborn and recovering is quite an undertaking! She was also very colicky all the way up until 3 months. Breastfeeding and bonding wasn't as easy breezy as I had once imagined. Now we have some eczema issues where I find myself watching her like a hawk, so she won't scratch! Everyone tells you, but you never truly realize the reality of it until it hits you in the face! It was a huge transitioning period for both baby and ourselves. On top of that, we moved to another state, Connecticut, a month after her birth and in the middle of winter! It was far from desirable as far as postpartum recovering goes.

We named her Coralie and she was born on 12/7/14 after 33 hours of laboring at home! I almost didn't make it to the hospital in time! Ha! Imagine that...

The home is still a mess as I find myself struggling to find a good moment to clean. When she's awake, my time is with her and when she's not she wakes up to the slightest noise. I'd rather not stir her since it takes an hr of rocking for her to fall asleep sometimes. I know it's bad to tiptoe around her, but I'm just too exhausted sometimes to want to deal with the consequences.

She's already 4 months. It's crazy how she has changed from birth. The first pic is day 2 and the second pic is from 2 weeks ago:

Yes...she was born with a full head of hair! She gets that from me. :D Aside from the eyes and eyebrows, she doesn't really share any of my features.

I've made a couple of cards since her birth, but really there isn't time to post things and each one takes forever to make. We travel a lot to visit family and friends (not exactly fun with a newborn) as our parents are pretty up there in age and cannot really travel. This basically sums up the last 5 months. :) Hopefully you're all faring well. I hope to get back into things in the near future. We will see!

Miss you guys out there! Enjoy the last day of April!
