Week one

(Originally written on Friday, but not posted until today!)

Today concludes one week at home with Chandler. Next Monday Aaron goes back to work and I am on my own. Physically I am fine and recovering from the surgery as normal, but I am emotionally not prepared. I am so afraid with four children running around the house that I can't be the mom I want to be, but more importantly the mom God created me to be. I know that through Christ I can do all things and I know I can give him all my cares and that I don't have to spend my time worrying. I "know" it's all true, but do I believe God will provide for ME? In the end He will, even if life is rough for awhile, I know my God will come through....He always does, even with my unbelief.

Since this was our first week at home and very special to all of us I wanted to document it.

Friday:
We got home from the hospital around 2:30pm
Everyone was so excited and got to hold baby Chandler.
Nothing productive happened, but staring at the baby and smiling all day.

Saturday:
I had an appointment at the breastfeeding clinic. Aaron dropped Chandler and I off and then he took the kids to the library.

Sunday:
Our first real family outing was at church. It was good to get out and show off Chandler.
We took the kids out for pizza, we all had a great time.
Target run after pizza, we had some things we needed. Everyone was good :)

Monday:
We all took Taylynn to Preschool, then we headed back to Target to get some things we forgot.
Then Toy's R us and TJ Maxx.
We picked up Taylynn and headed home for the day.

Tuesday:
Aaron took everyone but Chandler to the Discovery Center so I could relax a bit. The quiet was nice, but after an hour I missed the noise.
I had my first mommy of four failure......I missed Chandler's doctor's appointment.Ooops!
My friend Taylor came by to meet Chandler.
We watched a really bad Halloween movie with the kids.

Wednesday:
We stayed in the house all day and relaxed.

Thursday:
I was ready to get out of the house. We took the kids to the mall for some Chick-fil-a and some shopping. We were there for four hours, but everyone behaved!

Friday:
Aaron and Preston took Taylynn to school then they went golfing (pictures to come)
Alayna, Chandler and I stayed home. While Chandler slept Alayna and I had so much fun! We played and colored and sang and dance. It was so wonderful to spend time with just her, I wish I had more of an opportunity to do that.

After Aaron picked us up after getting Taylynn, we went to lunch; I was craving some mexican food.

What a wonderful week! I love our family of six, so many adventures to come!
