The First Week

We survived the first week! It's always the hardest, right? Grandpa Mike, from Phoenix, came for a visit this weekend to meet the newest addition and left this morning. Rand is back to work this morning, too. My mom is helping by taking the big boys to their classes this morning (which I haven't even blogged about yet) and me and the 2 littlest are home alone until about 1:30 ish. Back to life....that's what it feels like! I have spent the entire week inside (despite our crazy beautiful weather we have been having here). The boys have all been outside most of the time. Rand put up the swing set with his Dad down in our lower yard. I could almost feel all the summer fun we are going to have. But me, well I spent the week just watching Annabel change before my very eyes. So fast! Maybe it's because she was born a tad late...or maybe because she is a girl, but I have been blown away by how fast she is going from that sleepy newborn to an alert baby. She is calm and content and she is already smiling at all of her admirers. Love her.
