Well, have been up since 3 am feeding, burping, rocking, and changing diapers. She may have some hobbit in her because she just had 2nd breakfast since 3am. She is starting to get the breast feeding thing down and feedings are going better. Praise God. We are so thankful for all of the prayers and advice and comments. It is funny how, at least now, being up at 3 am is not that bad. We have a saying at church to "suffer well" and that is something Cindy and I want to keep in mind when we have to get up in the middle of the night to change a diaper or feed.
We hopefully will be going home later this morning. Once she finishes feeding, hopefully will get a little more sleep. I feel like I am a medical resident on call once again having to get up in the middle of the night, except I am getting a LOT more sleep than most medical residents do.
And we agree, she is precious, beautiful, lovely and all the other adjectives so many of you have used. She is truly a blessing/gift/heritage from the Lord.
" 3-5 Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior's fistful of arrows
are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents,
with your quivers full of children!
Your enemies don't stand a chance against you;
you'll sweep them right off your doorstep" (The Message)
