You know when you find the perfect recipe and you want to eat it all the time because you just can't get enough? Well, that is how I feel about our new family, I just can't get enough.
First you add an amazing husband who honestly blows my mind with how he handles everything. Last night, Mary was up at 4:30am for her feeding and when I woke he told me to go back to sleep because he would take care of her. Yes, reason 8,356 why I love him. He has been home with us this week and I am loving every minute of it.
Then you add some dashes of Henry. Henry is so in love with Mary that you just want to die. He is always kissing her and patting her on her feet. We don't allow him to touch her head so we say her feet for now. When he comes in our room in the morning, he loves that she is in there and always says Good Morning to her. When he comes home from school he runs in the door looking for her. He really wants her to play with him but we keep reminding him that she is too small. He likes to put things in her pack and play and swing so she can have them and look at them.
After Henry you sprinkle in Mary. She is perfect, yes perfect. She eats every three hours, sleeps like a champ and poops like the best of them ;) I know she is only a week old and this can all change and I'm ready for that but for now we are enjoying the sweet bliss. She is already moving her head around to look at things and keeping her eyes open more and more every day.
Finally you add in generous amounts of support from our families and our friends. My parents are here, Charlie's mom was here last weekend and his Dad and Gayle are coming up to help us next week. Our friends have come to see her along with sending support through text messages and phone calls.
You put all that together and you get the perfect recipe for happiness.
