Quick Lily Update

Filed in PersonalTags: Family, Fatherhood, Photos

We've made it relatively smoothly through our first night at home. Steph and Lily seem to have taken to the glider in the nursery for feedings, and Lily seems to like to sleep in the bassinet in the living room during the day:

Last night I went to sleep around quarter till ten while Steph expressed some milk to help with some milk relief. Before turning in to bed, we laid Lily down for her first night in her cradle - the same cradle that I and my sister both slept in. She seemed quite comfortable:

I woke up this morning around quarter till seven, rather well-rested, even with the two feedings Lily took during the night. Steph was still very tired (as is to be expected!), so while she took in-between-feeding naps this morning, Lily and I spent some time together:

This afternoon, I am going to try to get some of the housework caught up. Tomorrow morning is Lily's first appointment with her Pediatrician.

  1. I’m just getting caught up.. Congrats! She’s a beautiful little girl and I’m sure you are more than proud of her. You’ll be in our prayers as you adjust to the new routine. Savor each moment.. they grow up in the blink of an eye. Mine are now 11 and 8 1/2. *sigh*

    Thanks, Sparky’s Girl! Indeed, we are proud beyond words, and blessed beyond imagination! Thanks for the prayers; we certainly can use all the prayer support we can get. 🙂
