Little Miss Ruthie Claire has been a joy! We love her so much. She is a very content little girl! Her appetite is great and nursing is going really good! To sum her up…..she is SWEET! That is the word we are constantly using to describe her. This mama has no complaints. Even in the midst of waking up for nighttime feedings, my attitude is that of thankfulness and joy.
The c-section went relatively smooth and I’m bouncing back really quickly from surgery. This third time around has definitely been a lot easier than the previous c-sections. I’m so thankful for that.
Kaylyn is such a big helper. She is in love with Ruthie. Both, Kaylyn and Laney Rae, can’t stop kissing her. Its precious to watch. The first thing Laney Rae does when she wakes up from sleeping is look for Ruthie. In her raspy scratchy voice, Laney Rae talks so sweet to Ruthie.
Besides our car dying on the way home from the hospital in the Chick-fil-a drive thru, we’ve had a pretty smooth transition. I’ll have to save that story for another post. If I type that whole thing up, I might bust a stitch! At the time, it wasn’t funny in the least. But looking back, its completely hilarious and sit-com worthy!
We are beyond blessed to have family near by. Kaylyn stayed with her cousins, Honey, and Uncle Aaron while we were in the hospital. Laney Rae stayed with her Tio, Tia, and cousin Ava. My mom and grandpa (yes, Ruthie’s great-grandpa!) has been here with us helping us get situated and keeping the older girls happy!
Jason and I feel very blessed to have three precious girls in our home. We can’t wait to see who Ruthie becomes! We treasure these newborn days because we know that it will be gone in the blink of an eye.
Thank you for your prayers, notes, and encouragement! Here are some pictures during our stay at the hospital.
