On August 19th at 12:06 pm our beautiful daughter Lennon Simone was brought into the world. She was 7 pounds 3 oz. and 20.5" long, she has the longest feet I have ever seen maybe she will be a runner :) I never thought I could love another human being as much as I love her and while it is so exciting to have her in our lives I do get nervous from time to time, will I be a good mom, will I be able to handle taking care of her, a full time job, being a good wife, and will I have time for me ever again? I am sure these are thoughts that run thru every new mom's mind.. at least tell me this is normal.
Anyway.... here is a pic of me a couple of days before she arrived... I was getting so uncomfortable and I
remember the first thing that came out of my mouth after I had her was "Wow... it feels so good to have her out of my belly"
I think the coolest thing was when she was born the Dr. asked "Ok, dad.. wanna see what the sex of the baby is?" and Dean in tearssaid, "it's a girl" as I laid there all I could think was is she ok, does she have any problems and then as soon as I saw her I knew she was perfect.
Here is Lennon Simone.
Now Flash forward a week later we are settled in at home and starting to get into a routine, we both are getting a pretty good amount of sleep I guess as
much as you can expect. Dean has been so helpful. I get up and feed her then he will get up and rock her to sleep so I can get some rest then in the morning I get up while he lays in bed with her so I can have a little down time, drink some coffee, read the paper and eat some breakfast, this will change next week though when he has to
go back to work but I think Lennon and I will get something figured out when it is just her and I together. We have been taking her on walks with Jude every day which is good for all of us, for dean and I to get some fresh air and out of the house and for Jude who I think is warming up to Lennon (at least I think so) I don't want to exclude jude so I need to post a cute
pic of her too as well as some pics of Lennon's room
