It took me four tries, but I am finally the confident and relaxed mother I wish I could have been with the others. Eliza is absolutely perfect and I’m enjoying every moment of her life. She sleeps a lot and I’m not exaggerating when I say she spent no more than 1 hour with her eyes open during the first 8 days of her life. She seems to be awake a wee bit more today.
Shane and Caleb are back from North Carolina and it’s good to have everyone together. The kids all adore Eliza and she gets lots of kisses and head rubs. Ana loves holding her and she’s trying to help out as much as she can. She even got Charlotte some clothes yesterday morning and started to get her dressed!
