One Week Later.

It's now been one week since Mr. Ryder entered the world... or should I say shook up OUR world!?! Things have been crazy and stressful at times, but overall very good. We have had several mostly sleepless nights, but help to get us through. We came home from the hospital Saturday afternoon, we were given the choice to stay through Sunday, but I was ready to get home! My parents stayed for the weekend and then my mom stayed till Tuesday and then Daniel's mom came down Wednesday through today. And tonight Michelle, Rachel & Katey are coming down. So we've been very blessed with lots of help. Ryder had his first pediatricians appointment this week and is doing very well and we had our first outing yesterday to Starbucks and Target, of course. I'm doing pretty well, still recovering a little, but feeling much better and Daniel is hanging in there through a tough week of working on little sleep! Here are some pictures to update the week...

Getting ready to go home.

Ryder, meet your doggy-brother, Rocky.

Mimi & Poppi are proud, ya think?

A little sibling rivalry starting here. I was trying to take Ryder's picture and Rocky jumped right up on the couch in front of him to get HIS picture taken instead!

Happy in his swing.

Look how CUTE he is!!!

Sleeps all day... up all night...
