The Taylor Brood Has Arrived Home!!

Well we made it...home sweet home. It is so nice to finally have our family in our own home. We are still very busy, since everything was last minute we did not have really any time to get things together at home. So that is what we have been trying to do and well get all the paperwork with the birth certificate and SS# all going. She is still too small to breast feed every time and for one feeding so I am pumping alot, while feeding and then putting her to bed. It is all a cycle, feed, change, pump, clean, and then put her to sleep...but I LOVE IT!! I will have to say I can't wait till I don't have to pump any more. I am counting down the weeks till I can run again, oh I am so excited. Recovery is still going but well near the end. That getting cut in half thing is really not so fun. But she was so worth it.
Jeremiah is back to work now and hates leaving his little girl and wife I am sure, hahaha. He comes home and as soon as he walks in the door, his eyes light up at the site of his new family, it is such a wonderful thing to see. He is such a good father, hands on all the way. We have learned many diaper lessons so far...I have been pooped on at 5am and he has changed multiple blow out diapers, which are his fault anyway, due to not putting the diaper on right. Ellah still has gas like her daddy...I am sad to say I will be the mom with the stinky kid in school. But with her being cute as a button, the boys will overlook the smell.
Ellah had her first doctor appt. on Tuesday and she is growing so fast. Everyone says she is so small and Jeremiah and I look at her and think she is so big is amazing. She is now over a pound over her birth weight, fantastic. She also has little chubby cheeks and her little thighs are getting some fat on them. The doctor has told us we need to wait a few more weeks for Ellah to visit and for bummed us out because I want to take her out and show her off...we can't help she is such an angel. But since she is so small still, she needs to get a little stronger and all those germs are not so good. So to all of you waiting...just a few more weeks.
Our nieces and nephews love their new little cousin, Emmarie loves to help with everything. She is just so interested with everything from how does she get from here to there, breast feeding, she even offered her Polly Pocket clothes for Ellah to wear, hahaha. I love it, pure inocence of a child. I hope everyone is having a good time and enjoying life, as we are!!
