Stella At Home

Baby Stella is two weeks old now and we're all adjusting to life with a newborn.  Poor Scout has really had it rough.  Her whole life has been flipped upside down.  But, she's taking it like a champ, slowly adjusting, and she loves little Stella.  Mr. Frisby and I are also adjusting.  Things have been crazy, especially with the lack of sleep, but we're loving our little girl.  And, of course, Stella has been adjusting to life outside my belly.  She's also taking it like a champ and has even had a few 5 hour stretches between feedings that allow me a solid 4 hour block of sleep.  She's also had some 2 hour stretches between feedings that allow me pretty much no sleep.  But all in all, she eats well, she sleeps well, she poops exceptionally well, and she makes us smile all the time.  I am slightly afraid for Mr. Frisby to go back to work on Monday, but I think everything will be fine.  I still think it's just a little crazy that I actually have a daughter and that that tiny little creature was inside me just a couple weeks ago.  Hooray for babies!  And, now I will shamefully use my blog to photo-brag about said awesome daughter of mine.

Daddy loves her!

Look at all of her luxurious red hair!  We'll see how long it lasts.

We love our little Stella!
