My Week in Pictures

3 days overdue, heading to my induction at 5:00 pm on Monday, Dec. 21st.

Natalie Grace, around 5:20 on Tuesday, December 22nd.

Natalie with Mommy and Daddy.

Natalie with Daddy.

A hug from big brother. :)

Ready to go home from the hospital - around 6:00 on Wednesday, Dec. 23rd!

Z making Christmas cookies with his Grandma on Christmas Eve.

Natalie with one of her Christmas presents - a pink pig from one set of her Iowa grandparents. :)
Wearing her first headband, on Christmas Day. Doesn't she look thrilled with the hairdo?

And, finally, A Christmas picture - Natalie & Zachary with their grandparents - it has been so nice to have them here helping out since we've been home from the hospital! Unfortunately, Natalie decided to have her first blowout before we got OUR family Christmas picture. :( I'm sure we'll take one before long. :)

Hope everyone had an equally Merry Christmas!

Also, thank you to all who have been praying for us - and I can tell that you have - Natalie is doing excellent with nursing, and sleeping a decent amount, and I am just able to enjoy every minute with her. The first two days home from the hospital I was a little bit of an emotional/hormonal wreck, but I am feeling so much better, physically and emotionally these last couple of days, and I am SO thankful to be able to enjoy my daughter so much! Thank you for your prayers!!!
