"One week"Well, Sophie has officially been a part of our family for a week now. How truly blessed we are to have her here. We continue to adjust to having two children, but I can't imagine not having both of them as part of our family. Josiah is really loving his "baby." This morning I was coming down the stairs and he heard us. He said "Momma, Baby!" While eating breakfast he wanted to get up on the table (we had Sophie in her bouncy seat on the table) to see "Baby." He loves giving her kisses and gets concerned when she doesn't have a hat on her head. Watching how gentle he is makes me smile--he is learning from Daddy on how to be gentle with girls. I couldn't think of a better man to show Josiah the ropes.
Today is my first day home with just the kids. I will have a friend come over around lunch and nap time to lift Josiah into his highchair and crib for me. It'll be another week before I can pick him up again. Even though I'm feeling great and feel like I could do it if needed, I've decided it probably best to follow doctor's orders.
We thank you for the continued prayers. God has truly blessed us in many ways. Please continue to pray as we learn about our sweet, little Sophie. We have learned that things we did for Josiah don't necessarily work for Sophie. How truly amazing God is when creating life and thankful that we aren't all alike.
