The few weeks after bringing home a baby are such an amazing time. Honestly, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I felt with both my children equally exhausted and elated. The no sleep thing is SO difficult, yet that first little yawn just sends you into a state of euphoria-this child is mine! I am so blessed!

Cooking a meal for a family with a new baby is the kindest gesture. We returned home to my SIL's chicken tetrazzini-yum!

I'm not sure of her recipe or I'd post it-Sorry! 

And cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes! Definite cure for the flabby belly ;)

My mom and sister also hooked me up with this cute wreath for my front door.

I love all the visitors that come to see the new baby too. It's so nice to have help and Carsyn loves the attention.

Hank is such an easy baby.  He rarely cries and sleeps a lot...during the day ;)  He is such a good eater too.  He loves being held and its hard to put him down.  He will sleep in his pack n play for a few hours though.

Carsyn has really been enjoying her books lately.  We are working on picking out colors and objects.  This Dr Seuss book is her favorite right now.

you see why she loves her uncle Robby!

 I'm just glad everyone overlooks mom being a wreck and toys all over the house.

Lastly, I'm so very lucky my mom retired this year and has spent a lot of nights camping out at our house. A girl needs her momma after having a baby! And Carsyn and Hank love Rosie!
