A Little Bit More on Everything

Let's see. I guess I will blog a bit about Cordelia's birthday, but much of it was just too personal to accurately describe or share.

Monday night, after Eric had fallen asleep I started feeling like it was baby time. I spent the entire night at home, not waking Eric until I was absolutely sure (I'd been having contractions for nearly a week) that it was time to go to the hospital. We gathered ourselves together and went in at around 5:30. My Mom arrived a short while later, just as I was being admitted. We were all so relieved not to be sent home. Everything moved quickly after that and she was here before 10am.


Words cannot explain the feelings that surround such an event, but I will say that it was the best day of our lives.

Since then we have returned home and have been acting like typical new parents, just sitting around and staring at our daughter, getting to know all of the little bits and pieces. We are in the baby cloud.

We are tired, but it's that good kind of tired that comes from caring for an infant.

I am sure many of you are wondering how Bumblebee is handling the transition. She is doing remarkably well. When Cordelia cries Bumblebee likes to run over and alert me like a little nurse...either that or she is begging me to make it stop.

My parents are amazing Grandparents and they have already been so helpful. We have a fully stocked fridge and plenty of support.

In addition to my parents we have had so many people extend such kindness to us that we are completely overwhelmed with gratitude.

So, in conclusion, having Cordelia is amazing and even better than we imagined.

How are you doing?

Hello Maria, Eric, and Cordelia!

Congratulations Maria and Eric on the birth of your beautiful little girl. I am so sorry I have not written sooner, but I guess with all you are experiencing you can understand why. You are right in that there are no words to describe the feelings you have when your child is born, it is beautiful beyond compare. I hope you are having a great first week and all continues to go well for you. I guess better get back to work...congratulations again. Our happiest of thoughts and prayers are with you!!!

Congratulations to you and Eric on the birth of your precious little girl. Just one month younger that my grandson! I'll be paying special attention as your experience mirrors, in many ways, the things my son and daughter-in-law are going through. Take good care of yourselves--I know that's a struggle at this point. Baby's needs are front and center!

What perfect baby toes! Aren't they just yummy?! =) I'm glad you're home getting to stare at the beautiful new creation that you made. It never gets old.

Oh and we're all fine here. Headed to a pumpkin patch tomorrow for hay rides and a corn maze. Enjoy your first weekend at home with Miss Cordelia!
