Yes, my lack of posting and responding to comments lately is definitely Caroline-related. We actually had a good week last week, but I knew I had to take a break from the blogging if I wanted to keep up on life at home. Last week she found her hands and is now putting them in her mouth frequently. She also smiled for the first time! It made her mama’s heart melt. 🙂
Saturday we took Caroline out for the first time. Where did we go? A bookstore/coffee shop, of course! She did very well. Yesterday we took her to church for the first time and she was as good as gold. Just a couple little peeps, but otherwise she slept through most of the service, just waking up a few times here and there. It was great to be back at church and be able to SING. The last few months of my pregnancy I couldn’t sing because I couldn’t catch my breath and I would end up exhausted. It was so nice to sing again!
That’s it for now. I do appreciate the comments on my birth story and hope to write a small follow-up post on that topic.
David took this picture of me feeding Caroline in the nursery this morning. There is wonderful morning light in there. 🙂
