I can't believe that my little munchkin is already 9 days old. It is incredible how fast this past week has flown by. She's already looking a little fuller around the cheeks (both sets).
I just want to say that David is the most amazing husband. He's been so supportive and such a source of strength to me throughout the pregnancy, birth, and this first week of serious life adjustment. I could not imagine trying to figure out the whole mommy thing without my fabulous companion guiding and helping me each step of the way. I am overjoyed and my heart is full of gratitude to my Father in Heaven for blessing me with such a beautiful family.
David's parents were able to be here last weekend when Liliana was born and they were so wonderful to fix the leaky shower faucet that I managed to break the day we ended up in the hospital to have our baby. They also stocked our cupboards and refrigerator so we had plenty of goods to come home to. It was wonderful.
My mother came into town on Thursday evening and has been a huge help to me as I continue recovering from the birth. She's heading back to Utah tomorrow, so we're all hoping that my sister, Sylvie has her baby tonight before my mom has to leave town. Well, if Sylvie follows the same pattern I did, her baby won't be here for another week still.
I have to send a shout out to the wonderful individuals and families that have been so kind as to bring us meals. You know who you are and I hope you know how much David and I appreciate you. It just makes it nice to have one less thing to worry about and try to take care of during this initial recovery and adjustment time.
It is also so nice to know that I have such wonderful supporting family and friends nearby. My sisters, aunts, David and my grandmothers, Susie (my best bud since childhood), and all you wonderful friends from church or work. Thanks for all your encouragement and support.
My sister, Nicole (self-proclaimed favorite auntie), hosted a beautiful baby shower this past weekend in order for some extended family members and people from my parent's home ward to meet Liliana. It was a lot of fun and I appreciate all the adorable baby gifts that people so generously brought. Thanks, Nicole!
I'm loving being a stay-at-home mom and I am so thankful to my hardworking husband for making this possible. I couldn't imagine how hard it would be to have to turn around and head back to work, leaving my precious bundle in someone else's care. I would have too hard of a time with that. I already catch myself spending a lot of time just watching my baby sleep. I know I'm biased, but I think she is absolutely beautiful.
