I suppose the more accurate title would be “In Which We Adjust to Becoming a Family of Five,” but you get the general idea, I’m sure.
Our family is adjusting to a new baby fairly well, thank goodness. Jessica is a good sleeper, which helps tremendously. Our nursing relationship is still a work in progress, so I’m feeling very lucky that Marcus is able to be home to help in these first few weeks.
The girls love their baby sister–they can’t stop giving her kisses and asking to hold her. Samantha, especially, seems smitten with baby Jess. I think Erica is taking the adjustment the hardest of all–used to being a Mommy’s girl, she’s a bit jealous of the time she isn’t getting. But, all in all, they are doing well.
I cannot believe that what once started as just Marcus and I, before God, in a church in Annapolis, has grown into a family of five. How did that happen? What did we do to deserve this wonderful family of five that we’ve become? We are truly blessed.
