She's Here

And announcing the most beautiful baby(I'm a little biased), here is Miss Taylor Michelle Lambert
She was born Monday, April 14th at 7:25 am weighing in at 8 lbs 7 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. That would be Chris' finger that she has a hold of in this picture and she's had a hold of that finger ever since! She has a ton of hair, so the nurses made a little mohawk for us. She looks even cuter in the hat that the nurses made for her. Chris told them how excited I would be that she had hair so that I could use all the bows and they made a bow for her hat. Taylor has the most beautiful blue eyes that you can see even better here.

Now, one of the best non-Taylor pictures would have to be of what Chris saw as they were taking care of Taylor in the nursery.

This would be Desha, my mom, Kellie, Jeff, Chris' mom, and Chris' dad all huddled around the nursery window to see Miss Taylor.

This would be our second family photo. The first one was while I was still in the operating room, but this one is much better of us all. This next photo is of Chris and Taylor while we were still in the hospital. She's already his couch buddy and found that perfect spot on his chest to snuggle in and watch TV with him. Poor Chris slept on this couch for 3 nights and was definitely ready for us to be released from the hospital.

We got home last week and have been enjoying the new adventures of parenthood. Taylor has definitely kept us on our toes, but has truly been a wonderful baby so far. We've survived one week now and I think she's going to keep us. I am starting to find a balance to my days and Taylor managed to sleep for an hour so that I could get this posted. Here are some things that I have learned to appreciate after one week of motherhood:
- I never knew I could love someone as much as I love my husband
- I still can't believe that they let us take her home from the hospital without signing our life away like we had to for the dog at the Humane Society
- I couldn't do this without all the support from Chris and our family. Thanks Mom for stocking the fridge and cooking! Thank you Terrie for coming over every morning to help us move downstairs!
- That I won't break Taylor and most of the time I can reposition her while she's sleeping and not wake her.
- The diapers don't bother me like I thought they would.
- Daytime TV isn't all that great
- Our dog has been wonderful with the baby and checks in on her when she cries
- Naps are most treasured now than they were in college

Off to go spend some time with my precious girl.

It's so fun to read your thoughts on your first days of motherhood! Keep those coming...and of course, the pictures of the princess! How sweet of the nurses to make that adorable bow. :) She's a doll. One more week until I get to meet her!

Your one week observations are SO true! Taylor is seriously adorable! I ended up having Leili one day after you - she has lots of hair too. It's fun to comb and puff up! Take care!
