Our First Week

Oh how time flies when you're having fun!

And we are.

There is nothing better in the world than snuggling a new baby with the one you love.

The Lietz Family has adjusted to life at home and things couldn't be better.

Kherington is the best baby... sleeping well, eating well, and wrapping us around her long little fingers.

Skip and I are both getting plenty of sleep. Yes, really! She nurses every 2 or 3 hours at night, so I only sleep in 1 or 2 hour spurts... but I've been getting plenty of them.

I recovered easily from the C Section. The incision pain went away and now the ab pain is easily controlled with advil. I know full recovery will take several more weeks, but I feel very fortunate to be doing this well.

I am breastfeeding, and it is going wonderfully. We both had the patience to learn, and I know I'll never regret it. I love breastfeeding... and Skip doesn't hate my porn star boobs. :-)

Speaking of Skip... he has been my biggest surprise. I always knew he was a good man and would become a great dad. But I had no idea that fatherhood would come so naturally and look so good on him. He dove right in from birth, doing the majority of the work while I recovered. He took excellent care of both Kherington and I. I fall in love with him a bit more every day. He is an amazing Daddy and excellent husband. We are some lucky girls!

Kherington is already growing and thriving. This week she had her first doctor visit, her first bath, and even her first dinner party thrown by Sissy & DeDe!



Snuggling my sweetie.




Her first bath. Despite her face here, she didn't hate it too much!


I've only taken a few shots of her... but soon I'll play dress up and take oodles more!

Of course she smiles when I focus on her precious hands!

One week down... but we are in no rush for her to grow too fast!
This is life at it's best!
